Prestigious School in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Area

First it was the issue of taupok-ing.



And now there is the 'problem' of school kids writing bad but possibly accurate things about their teachers.



And in both cases, there is one common link - “prestigious school in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Area”. Oh stop it already. I can’t take it anymore. What in the world is “prestigious school in Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Area”? Hiding behind a veil of anonymity? In a place like Singapore where privacy is worse than the chewing gum stuck on the underside of your shoe, how can such secrecy be allowed? :)

I decided to do the unthinkable among Singaporean journalists – investigate. I wanted to use the Street Directory but then remembered that they copyright all their maps and if I use it for a greater good, they will surely sue me. So I went to the best source possible – Google Earth!



That’s Bishan-Ang Mo Kio area for you but cannot make out anything because of the clouds. Next stop – MOE website. A criteria search revealed the answer. But I guess most of us know the answer by now oredi :)

Funny also hor, how the letter to the newspaper spoke about blogging at an all boys school but the kids against who action was taken were all girls :) Guess that only means that there is more drama to come....

btw, mrbrown has a damn funny suggestion on how the teachers can respond to students blogging about them...

Maybe teachers should start their own blogs and flame their students back. Better yet, have a yearly Interschool Teacher-Student Flamewar Blogging Championship. Like a WWE of blogging.

I think its a foregone conclusion that the teachers will win. If not, the students sure kenna in their school work.

Is there some sort of rule against naming the school? Would the rich parents throw a hissy fit knowing the school that they spend their money on for their kids can be so scandalous? :)
