Hello! 😄 Never stop learning! Continue to study hard and one day, you will see a great future ahead of you! 🌈 Be happy and stay healthy! – Joanna (Singapore) // The past is a source of knowledge, and the future is a source of hope. Love of the past implies faith in the future. – Toh Lay Hong (Singapore) // Hello kids! Though this message, I would like to tell you all that I was just like you when I was your age and could come so far just because of discipline and hard work. I used to walk 8km a day to reach school. However, I never considered it as an issue may be because I was curious to learn and meet friends :-) My advice to you is that: Keep the spirits high, be disciplined, respect elders, listen to teachers, most importantly, ask questions. Last but not the least... KEEP SMILING!  – Sukanya Kanumuri (India) // One day you will grow up and become famous. But even then, always respect the seniors and honor your parents. – Anonymous (Vietnam) // Be Stronger! – Anonymous (Vietnam) // 
When someone tells you "It's impossible for life to be better", remember to pen it down and show the person this instead...."it's I M possible for life to be better" Sometimes it just takes a different view to look at things. Have a great day ahead! 😊 – Corrine Toh (Singapore) // Dear Children, the best way to predict your future is to create it. And the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. All the best! – Sharon Ng (Singapore) // Xin chào! Chúc các em sẽ có một năm học thú vị và ý nghĩa! – Linh (Vietnam) // Hope all children have the learning opportunity and go to school! – Tri (Vietnam) // Study smart, play hard. – XianYong (Singapore) // May smile always decorates your face, and love decorate your souls always! – From Kate With Love (Vietnam) // Hello sweetie, shine light, shine bright! 😀 – Jasmine (Singapore) // Try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud. – Bernard Ng (Malaysia) // Work hard. Dream Big. Never give up. – Auntie Flo (Singapore) //
Though there are doom and gloom stories happening everywhere in the world we are living right now, there are silver linings everywhere around us if you look a little closer. There are teachers transferring their knowledge to us, food on our table for every meal, medicine for us when we are sick, etc. Everything tend to go in cycles, bad times will eventually pass and there will be bright and sunny days for us to look forward to :) – Heng Kia Hing (Singapore) // The road will be long and bumpy but never forget that there will always be a helping hand available to make your journey happier and more enjoyable. 💪🏻💗 – Pei Yun (Singapore) // Hello boys and girls! You're born with a gift, a gift that is unique to you and you only. Grow up healthy and strong and discover that gift within you, you're special in your own way. 😊 – Priscilla (Singapore)
