Mrs Karen Oei
Under Mrs Oei’s able leadership, holistic education for sound lifelong success was strongly emphasized. Problem-based learning and interest-based Integrated Project Work to help students learn and relearn to stay relevant were introduced to the whole school which culminated into a public exhibition, Itopiain 2002.
Mrs Karen Oei was also instrumental in cultivating the love for the Arts. She scripted the Bendemeer Story which was dramatized by students and staff for the school official opening on 9 September 1999. She also personally directed and led the whole school in the full scale production of the musical, Les Miserable on our school grounds.
The Intensive Revision Programme (IRP) was started and night study sessions were opened for students who wanted a conducive place to study.
