The Workers’ Party (WP) chief and Leader of the Opposition (LO) Pritam Singh took to his Facebook on Tuesday (8 Dec) to share a valuable advice to students who are in a period of uncertainty due to their lower-than-expected academic achievement.
According to Mr Singh, a resident who goes by the name Sanisah – whom he met at his Meet-the-People session (MPS) on Monday night (7 Dec) – shared that her daughter wasn’t exactly the happiest over her PSLE score.
At Ms Sanisah’s request during their encounter, he recorded a short video message dedicated to her daughter, reminding her “to keep her chin up” so as to overcome her apprehensions.
In his post, Mr Singh then gave a pep talk to anyone who are in limbo because of their PSLE results.
“As I learn and experience everyday, the world of tomorrow will be very different from that of our parents. One dimensional; repetitive and routine work will be replaced with AI [artificial intelligence] and new technology,” he wrote.
Mr Singh went on to say that the world of tomorrow will call for the worker of tomorrow, where a masterful combination of hard and soft skills is the more sought-after pursuit than high PSLE score.
“There will be more opportunities to chase that [rainbow] in the years to come. Seize them, even as the competition intensifies. And never underestimate yourself. You drive your own destiny,” he added.
