As pointed out by the Education Minister Heng Swee Keat, the quality and dedication of teachers is a reason for the success of Singapore's education system. In the 1970s, despite the lack of basic facilities, it was the teachers who made the difference to a whole generation.

“Without teachers’ dedication and hard work, those in my generation would remain as kampong boys and girls,” he said.

Mr Heng emphasised that teachers should be role models of life-long learning.

Mr Heng was speaking on Wednesday’s Teachers' Investiture Ceremony.

In total, 1,961 teachers will join the Education Service.
