Parent shares letter penned by suicidal student and addressed to the Prime Minister

By May Tan

I received the following via WhatsApp and am severely stunned by the vicious bullying alongside episodes of violence this 14-year-old girl has had to endure in school.

Schools should be safe havens for kids to grow, learn and thrive. She was most brave to speak up and push for changes in how schools respond to bullying. As parents we should trust the principal and teachers to ameliorate wrongdoings ... but if not enough is done, what then? I hope the PM actually reads her letter and looks into this... sigh...

Kindly feel free to spread word about said poor child's predicament; the issue of bullying must never simply be swept under the carpet.
