MEDIA STATEMENT

23 May 2017

  1. We are deeply saddened by the passing of Vice President (Alumni and Advancement) from Nanyang Technological University, Prof Lee Sing Kong. Professor Lee was a widely respected academic known for his dedication to education, passed away last Friday at his home.
  1. Muis is grateful to Professor Lee for his contribution to strengthening the madrasah sector by raising the capabilities of madrasah teachers. He facilitated an important collaboration between Muis Academy (MA) and the National Institute of Education (NIE). Many madrasah teachers had benefitted from this programme, which had led to significant improvements in the quality of teaching at our full-time madrasahs. .

  2. He attended the graduation ceremonies for 120 Madrasah teachers who completed the Specialist Diploma programme from 2009 till his last in 2014. His presence at the ceremonies affirmed his commitment and through his words of encouragement, gave bountiful hope and great inspiration to the teachers.

  3. Professor Lee’s enthusiasm, fatherly figure and passion for service will be missed dearly. Muis would like to express our deepest condolences to Mrs Lee and members of his family.
