Over the years, we have many students writing to us after they have left Balestier Students' Hostel. These students have graduated from their schools in Singapore and continued in institutions of higher learning either locally or overseas, but they have never forgotten us. They bring with them the wonderful memories they had of Balestier Students' Hostel, and wrote to us sharing their achievements and the happy times they had with us.

Here are some of the appreciation messages and letters written to us by the students who stayed at BSH.


Dear Aunty Jennifer,

As parents, we would like to say thank you for your attention, patience and also your guidance which you have given to my children when they were in Singapore. We hope they will be better in future. We also pray that God bless you for your kindness and support that you have given to all your students.

Thank You and Best Regards

我的儿子(蒲振华) 是于一九九九年四月来新加坡求学, 经人介绍就寄宿在马里士他学生宿舍, 至今已五年. 在此期间, 宿舍对于每位学生在生活上都给予细心的照顾, 学习上予以妥善的安排, 无论是学生签证或是学校安排, 都非常妥当, 使家长们无需忧心. 我儿子来自中国大陆, 英文基础比较差, 经宿舍安排语言学校补习英语, 另外回到宿舍加强辅导复习, 使他英语水平迅速提高, 当年考上政府学校, 并顺利完成初中, 高中学业, 今年已考上新加坡大学.

在此非常感谢马里士他学生宿舍对我儿子各方面照顾, 为他在新加坡求学期间提供良好学习环境. 家长将子女送到国外学习, 生活上得到妥善照顾, 学习上有细心安排环境良好的宿舍, 无疑是每位家长的期望. 假如你的子女到新加坡求学, 马里士他学生宿舍就是你明智的选择!



Dear Sir,

We would like to express our satisfaction of your facilities. Our child was happy to stay in your place. We are glad that our child managed to stay in your Hostel until he graduated from Sec 4. We would like to introduce your Hostel to our relatives and friends should they wish to study in Singapore.

Warmest Regards

首先, 我要感谢您和宿舍同人把我的孩子栽培成人. 如果没有宿舍同人的监督和协助, 他在学业方面是没有办法取得这样优异的成绩. 身为家长, 我们非常感谢宿舍同人为我们的孩子所付出的一切.

他在宿舍度过了十年的时光, 可说是他人生中难忘的一段童年的经验. 在新加玻所受的教育, 使他今天更有把握和信心去面对任何的挑战, 而且在未来的日子里继续争取更好的成级. 他将永远不会忘记在你们宿舍所度过的这一段童年.

我们没有办法找到适当的文字来感谢宿舍同人为我儿子(范登科) 所做的一切. 如果有机会的话, 我们一定会推荐马里士他学生宿舍给有意到新加玻来接受良好教育的学生. 谢谢!

Hi Auntie!

How are you? And how's everything in the Hostel? I'm doing fine and well in Melbourne! I've done well in my 'O' Levels, thanks to your self-study programmes and thanks to your strictness in taking care of us. Four years of my stay have been four of the best years of my life. Lastly, I want to say "THANK YOU" for your care, concern and hospitality shown to me during my stay.

Dear Aunt Jennifer,

How are you? I’m feeling great. I DID IT, AUNTIE!!! I graduated on May 29, 2004 for my Bachelor’s Degree. My major is Human Resources Management. I had my last class on the 1 st of July, 2004. This means no more studying for me until I decide to take my masters. Anyway the reason that I write this letter is to thank you for whatever you had done for me when I was in Balestier Students’ Hostel. I never did have a chance to thank you formally.

First, THANK YOU. Thank you very much for what you have done for me. You and Uncle Michael were like my 2nd parents in Singapore. Both of you have substituted for my parents, especially you, Aunt Jennifer. You were like my 2nd mother. You supported me in anyway that you could when I stayed in the hostel. I think you know me a little bit better than my own parents. You have educated me very well. You taught me lessons in life. You taught me how to be disciplined. You even taught me etiquettes. If it weren’t for you, I would probably still walk like a boy: with my feet wide apart.

I apologize for not keeping in touch with you for the past 4 years. I had so much things to do for college and I’m so glad that it’s over. But then again, I don’t know. I never liked doing nothing, I do not want my brain to get all rusty. Actually, now that I’m done with school, I feel lost and mostly bored. Well, I know that I do not want to take my masters first. I want to get some experience in my field. Maybe in a couple of years, I would consider taking my masters. Right now, the only thing that is in my mind is to get me a job. Wish me luck ok, auntie.

Anyway, once again THANK YOU. I am grateful for what you did. I have sent my graduation picture along with this thank you letter to remind you of me.

Yours truly,
Your Ex-BSH student


Dear Auntie Jennifer,

It has been a year since I graduated from secondary school and leave your hostel. I have settled myself down in California and I really love the life and school here. But I definitely miss the time when I was staying in your hostel. I really appreciate your love and care during my stay. I just want to let you know that you’re the greatest auntie.

Once again, I would like thanks you for taking care of me, Uncle Michael for being very friendly and nice, Cindy and Baoling “ce ce” for helping me out with documentation works. Last, Auntie Fat for her wonderful buffet and every BSH students for being my friend.

I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
