From Straitstimes.

“HAPPY HUG: Beaming with delight, Riverside Secondary student Chong Hui Fang, hugs her teacher Madam Norashikin Noor, 47, after receiving her ‘O’ level results on Friday. Riverside Secondary was among four schools that qualified for the Education Ministry’s list of ‘significantly improved’ institutions. To qualify, a school has to increase the number of its students’ passes by 10 per cent or more, and more than half its students have to pass five or more subjects. — HOW HWEE YOUNG”
