Mr Kevin Ang
I received a Public Service Commission scholarship to attend the Physical Education and Sports Science programme at Loughborough University, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Second Upper Honours).
In my ten years at a junior college, I think the greatest impact I had was in making Physical Education (PE) classes interesting and inspiring students to stay fit during and after their formal education. Many of them tell me that they miss my lessons. As the Subject Head for Co-curricular Activities, I helped initiate an annual performing arts concert that gave students a platform to showcase their talent, and organised sports science lectures for student-athletes to improve their performance. As a Physical & Sports Education Officer in the Student Development Curriculum Division, I worked on the PE syllabus for secondary schools and pre-university, looking into assessment in PE as well as PE safety. My stint at HQ was especially gratifying as I had a hand in charting the direction of the PE Syllabus in Singapore. I hope my humble contribution would go some way in achieving the purpose of the syllabus, which is for all students to lead an active and healthy lifestyle.
I believe that educators have a role in helping students discover their purpose in life. In an ever-changing environment, we need to anchor them in values and lead them to discern right from wrong. While students can be influenced by countless sources, I feel that education is still vital in forming a principled individual.
Joining Eunoia Junior College is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I could not pass up. It is exciting to be a part of a journey to shape the direction and culture of a new school.
Kevin joined the college as a pioneering Head of Department in 2016.
