President’s Award for Teachers

The President’s Award for Teachers (PAT) recognises excellent educators for their role in moulding the future of our nation.

In recognition of their inspiration to their students and peers, seven outstanding educators received the PAT 2021 from President Halimah Yacob during the Teachers’ Day Reception held at the Istana on Thursday, 2 September 2021. The seven recipients are caring educators and are committed to developing their students to the fullest potential. They constantly adopt innovative approaches in their lessons, and are lifelong learners and mentors to their peers. Through their words and deeds, these educators are an inspiration to their students and colleagues.

Congratulations to our PAT 2021 Recipients!
