Yishun Sec School: Academically Poor Students Banned From Racial Harmony Celebrations


In one of the most bizarre cases that surfaced in 2015, Yishun Secondary School decided it was a good idea to restrict Racial Harmony Day (RHD) celebrations only to those eligible for a placement in JC (i.e. those who scored below 20 for their L1R5).

The teachers did nothing to quell the outrage, replying the concerns of their students with elitist remarks about how they could only discuss about "celebrations" if they scored above 20. The school claimed that the essence of RHD would be lost if it was centered on celebrations, but the deprecating irony of grades-based discrimination was somehow deemed acceptable.
