Mrs Rathi Parimalan
In keeping with the changing landscape of our political and educational scene, the school embarked on re-envisioning under Mrs Rathi Parimalan. A thematic approach was adopted to provide focus and alignment for the whole school. Information Technology, empowerment and student-centred processes were given emphasis to provide for more customized ability-driven education for every Bendemeerian. There was also an emphasis on value-based education underpinning the school’s vision to nurture thinking individuals who are self-directed in achieving
their goals in life and for the nation. She also established the Parent-Support Group in 2003 to foster a closer partnership with parents.
Under her leadership, the Character Development Award was attained in 2006. She also spearheaded the school in good National Education practices and the school was awarded the prestigious Lee Kuan Yew Award for National Education in 2006.
