Another Mark of Distinction for Singapore's State Education System
"According to the Lianhe Zaobao, an 11-year old boy had committed suicide by jumping off a block at 470A Fernvale Link yesterday (18 May).
Residents had reportedly heard a loud thud early in the morning at approximately 645 am. Subsequently, the boy’s mother was seen crying next to the his body while his father apologized continuously.
It is unclear why the suicide took place but the boy was supposed to go to school to collect his exam papers so that his parents can acknowledge his results and sign it. There is speculation that this may have been because of results which did not meet expectations."
