Long-serving Singapore school principal Mrs Jasmail Singh Gill is one of the nine principals that will be retiring this year. Mrs Jasmail, 62, has been a principal for 21 years, with the last nine at Unity Primary School.
“I still enjoy what I do and have always found meaning and purpose in the job. I will miss my students and staff the most,” she was quoted in the Straits Times.
In the principal’s message, shared at the school’s website, Mrs Jasmail says: “To my mind an educational institute is not just about bricks, mortar and concrete, but about building character, enriching minds and about enriching experiences that lasts a lifetime.
“Life is not a set of instructions but is a series of experiences and a learning process. In this respect we provide a safe, secure, disciplined and quality learning environment here at Unity.”
