975 new and returning teachers recently received their certificates and awards at the National Institute of Education Teachers’ Investiture ceremony.
Six teachers were also awarded the Outstanding Youth in Education Award for inspirational teaching and dedication to their students.
Apart from honouring the achievements of young teachers, the award is also meant to inspire youths to take up teaching as a profession.
Ms Indranee Rajah, Second Minister for Finance and Education, who was guest of honour at the event at Nanyang Technological University, said education is more than just the imparting of knowledge.
“Your mission goes beyond preparing your student for exams. Your mission is to help prepare them for life,” she said.
