CHUNG, Chi Feng (Michael) – Grade 9 Pearl

Student of The Week

“Chung Chi Feng is outgoing, courteous and caring.  Unable to hide his generosity, he shares more than his jokes and snacks – his textbook is on permanent loan to a Grade 10 student.  In the classroom,  Chi Feng is hard working and goal oriented. For example in Economics class, he doesn’t quit when the whole new world of Economics proved to be a challenge during Trimester 1.  He persevered through two Trimesters and his efforts are paying off.  With a reflective personality, he would often come to his teacher after every quiz/test, either to celebrate his success or to muse over his shortfalls . That gesture left a lasting impression on his teachers. Thank you, Chi Feng for putting smiles on our faces!”




Best regards,


IBDP & TOK Coordinator
