Congratulations, Tobias Siow!

Heartiest congratulations to Tobias siow in obtaining an A1 distinction in English for his recent GCE level NA level examinations

Tobias joined DAS when he was in St Stephens Primary and later moving on to St Patricks Secondary School. Besides the MOE-aided DAS Literacy programme (MAP), he was also attending the DAS Maths programme since Primary school.

Tobias will be joining Nanyang Polytechnic in April specialising in a Diploma in Info communications and Security for Polytechnic Foundation course.

We are all proud of Tobias and I am confident with his resilience and positive attitude he will continue to strive to greater heights!

I would like to make a special mention to Tobias‘ parents, Michael and Shelley Siow, who have been very supportive in Tobias’ learning journey over the years. Working in partnership with Tobias’ parents has helped him to succeed with flying colours!

I started attending DAS when I was Primary 1 and from there I had slowly developed a love for books and reading. It was thanks to this, that I was able to do well in my GCE ‘N’- level English paper. However, I would never have had discover how much I enjoyed reading if I had not joined DAS and developed my literacy skills. For all that, I will always be grateful to all my teachers, Ms Karen Wong, Ms Hani Zohra Muhamad and Mr Samunn Caffoor at DAS for their constant help and patience.

Indeed it was a long humbling 10 year journey for our son Tobias, having to struggle in managing his dyslexic condition. However, witnessing his baby steps progression was our only encouraging factor. We are ever thankful for the great help and assistance rendered through DAS with its dedicated teachers and staff in nurturing Tobias in every step of his formation. This is evident in his recent N-Level results where he was placed among the top in his cohort. He now has a head start to pursue in another new academic phase and should he hold on to what was gained and implanted through DAS, I have confidence he will open another fruitful chapter. Thank you once again for all your efforts showered on Tobias.
– Mr Siow


Ms Karen, many many thanks for your care, guidance and concern all these years. Tobias came out top few in his cohort. He has an A1 for his English and a B3 for his Math and a big happy smile. Can’t help but to express our gratitude for all your efforts and care.

– Mrs Siow
