“As we mourn the passing of a great man, let us take some time to be grateful and thankful that there was such a man who dedicated his life to making the lives of Singaporeans better. Singapore would be much different if not for this man and the generation he led.
Then, let us honour the legacy he has left behind by continuing the work of educating our students to be leaders, learners and champions. Let us work to ensure that successive generations of Singaporeans (particularly those who pass through the gates of Bowen) will continue to live lives for a cause greater than themselves.”
- Mr Bernard Chew, Principal
“For me, Mr Lee is synonymous with Singapore. We can’t think of Singapore without recalling the extraordinary role that he played in Singapore’s history. He showed his deep love for Singapore and its future by fighting against all odds to achieve the great success story that is Singapore today.
He was the dedicated artist who had a powerful dream for Singapore and who worked tirelessly to make it become a reality for generations to come. I feel a deep sense of gratitude to him for giving us a great gift – the success story of Singapore.”
- Ms Sarah Abdullah, Vice-Principal
“We can look further as a nation because we are fortunate to stand on the shoulders of Mr Lee Kwan Yew and his pioneer team. The pioneer generation and his core team cast their lot (the future of the Republic) with him during the turbulent 60s and early 70s. What’s the outcome? It has transformed Singapore from third world to first world within 50 years.
The best way to say thank you, is as a nation, we continue to build on his legacy steadfastly so that Singapore can continue to look further on the shoulders of Giants.”
- Mr Clement Lim, Vice-Principal
A Tribute for our great leader, Mr Lee Kuan Yew
Remember me Singapore, although from my body my soul will depart
Embrace my vision, and carved my legacy in your heart
Making and building Singapore the way she is, were my dreams fulfilled
Embedded in her womb ; safety, security, prosperity, harmony, opportunities, possibilities
Marking the birth of a 1st class nation , never fear, we are Singaporeans
Be strongly competitive , be healthy and clean, and no corruption
Engaging Singaporeans to contribute the best they can
Remember this, “ I gave up my life to build Singapore” , our country
Iconic: from a small red dot to a giant nation in business and economy
Never fear, Singapore will survive.
Given the pressures, the circumstances, the challenges – the tears came alive
Let us remember this great leader born in 1923
Embarking from where he has depart, leaving us his legacy
Ensuring that Singapore continues to be a safe and harmonious haven for Singaporeans to be.
Knowing this great man is a royal privilege
Unassuming, a great visionary and a leader, we believe.
Architect and founder of modern Singapore.
Never in fear of odds against him, onwards he would strive to go
Yes indeed, this is my tribute as a Pioneer Generation,
Even though , in our life’s journey, we had crossed path, only once.
We will miss you Sir, but we will not forget your sacrifice and your deeds to Singaporeans.
