Bouquets: Son enjoys school, thanks to teachers

Son enjoys school, thanks to teachers

My son is enrolled in the Nursery 1 programme at Praiseland Childcare and Learning Centre, in Yishun.

Initially, he had problems adapting to the new environment and resisted going to school.

However, teachers Eileen and Zheng managed to calm him and reassure him, and three months in, I am proud to say that he enjoys school, and is learning how to sing and be more independent.

My family sees a drastic positive change in my son and all credit goes to the dedication, patience and love the teachers at Praiseland have for the children.

Doctors helped mum walk again

Early this year, my 77-year-old mother Ho Boon Eng underwent knee replacement surgery at National University Hospital (NUH), performed by Professor Wilson Wang.

Because of my mother's age, heart condition and diabetes, endocrinologist Khoo Chin Meng and cardiologist Adrian Low were also involved.

All the doctors coordinated their work extremely well and did all the necessary tests before the surgery was performed. My mother eventually recovered fully and is able to walk again.

What struck me most was the professionalism, care, concern and dedication of NUH's doctors. They visited my mother every other day during her stay in the ward, meticulously monitoring her condition and comforting her.

They were even back on the weekend and tried to attend to my mother, despite their busy schedules.

I will forever be grateful to NUH and its doctors.
