Quiet Heroes in the ECC
Posted 08/30/2016 02:25PM
When we think of the ECC, our thoughts often go to the joy and learning we see in our children as they are guided by our teachers and TAs. But behind the scenes, there are more staff - our quiet heroes - who ensure that our space is clean and organized, and that our children are safe. They work their hardest when our kids are at home. We rarely see them, but without them, the ECC would not run as smoothly as it does.On Friday, we recognized one of these quiet heroes: Ms. Ah Hua. Ms. Ah Hua wears many hats at SIS. For over 20 years, she has worked with SIS as a cleaner, a helper, and as a bus monitor (or "Bus Ayi" as the kids say). Over the past few years, she has worked closely with our ECC classes (and as parents, we all know how hard we need to work to clean up after our youngest kids.) Her constant smile, and her willingness to do whatever was needed in the interests of our children made her a quiet hero in our eyes.After many years working with our SIS children, Ms. Ah Hua is now ready to retire. We didn't want to let this pass quietly! On Friday, the ECC Team invited Ms. Ah Hua in for a surprise celebration and thank you. We will miss her commitment and warm smile! Below, she is pictured with the ECC Team, holding her thank you bouquet of flowers and commemorative gift.
Please join us in wishing Ms. Ah Hua well!
