In a separate segment of the ASF, four awardees Yu ZiChen (K2), Lau Yan Ting Hannah (P2), Yap Yi Zhe (P3) and Hasif Bin Mualana Abdul Halim (P5) went on stage for a Kumon Mathematics worksheet demonstration. They demonstrated their ability with worksheet levels that were 5 years ahead and even higher, than their school grade level. At the end of the demonstration, the entire auditorium was left in visible admiration of their ability.
In his speech, Mr Masahiro Takatsu, General Manager of Kumon Singapore and Brunei conveyed to the awardees his congratulations and urged them to pursue even greater heights.
Mr Takatsu shared, “In doing one thing, never give up halfway but continue to strive until the end. This ability to persevere on is the greatest ability and the most powerful weapon in your life. Truly, all of you have gained this greatest ability and most powerful weapon. Therefore, believe and be proud of yourself, and advance further from here”.
