ST Forum, 4 Oct 2005

The letter, ‘Should teachers seek to convert pupils?’ (ST, Oct 1), struck a chord with me.

Some years ago, my son was studying at Sembawang Secondary School when he joined the Boys’ Brigade. Without my knowledge, the instructors/teachers in charge would take the members to church to attend worship services, and study the Bible.

Finally, one day my son told me he wanted to become a Christian.

I wonder whether the Ministry of Education and the school principal were aware of this.
