Hey probably, almost all of you had known about the Wee Shu Min Scandal . I had also read quite a few blogs from tomorrow.sg regarding the whole idea of the elitist mindset from independent schools. Needless to say, I am from Hwa Chong Institution, but I am proud to proclaim that I have none of the elitist mindset. perhaps, it may be due to my humble background as compared tot the notorious elitis, uncaring faced wee shu min.
To be able to live in a well-to-do family is a luxury, but many fail to see it that way. To be an elitist, doesnt mean to put people down. I admit that there seems to be an invisible barrier between the neighbourhood school and independent school. I felt that its just like the heavy rainfall we had over the past few days, it is ineivitable. After like 4-6 years of hanging out with people of similar intellectual, and the mindset that the school gives the students, it may be hard for the elite students not to snob at the neighbourhood students, ESPECIALLY! if they are from some elite primary school, or even kindergarden.
But seriously, they should relook on their mindset. I mean, being in an elitist school just meant that you are inclined towards academic, ur neutrons in your brains are probably more active than the others.But I would really love to see elites who think themselves as the "o-so-mighty" flop one day. It is indeed true that not all students in elite school are like that, but in certain school, it seems to be the school trend. For Hwa Chong, we are just like a communist school, having said that, communist, how to be elitist? I cant say there are none, but it is significantly lesser.
In a way we are all human, we could all excel in different ways. The old saying goes : tian sheng wo cai bi you yong" , so stupid elitist who snobs at others, deserves to die die die.
