Remembering Lee Kuan Yew

Schools to pay their respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew

SINGAPORE - Flags at Ministry of Education (MOE) schools flew at half-mast from this morning, as a mark of respect for the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

Schools also observed a minute's silence during morning assembly.

On Tuesday, school leaders will address students and staff, and reflect on Mr Lee's life and legacy.

Teachers, staff and students from Government schools and post-secondary educational institutions, and those from MOE headquarters, will participate in state events such as the lying-in-state proceedings, special Parliament sitting and the State Funeral.
