1. Lim Dallas
2. Lai Chong Bao
3. Tan Gin Han
4. Chia Jun Wei
They went beyond their call as students and took initiative to bring the missing four year old child to our shopping mall. Not only did they bring the child to our Customer Service, they also spent a good 1 hour with the child to ensure his parent came to look for him before leaving. They were also very clear in relaying information to both our security and the police which helped greatly in shortening the time taken in reuniting the missing child with his parent.
We would like to express our gratitude for the assistance that they have rendered and we would like to highly commend them. We would greatly appreciate if you can relay our special thanks to them for their initiative and big hearts at such a young age.
Thank you and Best Regards,
Sabrina Ng (on behalf of Eastpoint Mall)”

An act of kindness, and a heartwarming compliment to our very own Changkateer. Well done, Hafiq!
“Dear Principal of CCSS, I thought I might write to you to share about something I was heartened by. Yesterday, as I was walking around East Point mall, I noticed an elderly man in a wheelchair, struggling to move and wheel himself in the direction he intended to go. Just before I was about to make my way over, I noticed that one of your pupils, Hafiq Nazim from 4N2, had approached the man and readily offered his assistance. He helped to wheel the man all the way from the mall to the MRT station and up the ramp to the lift. While it might have been a small gesture of kindness, I felt it was important to highlight the incident as it shows the success of the school values education, through Hafiq Nazim, who embodies the school vision, Serve with Humility.
– Warmest Regards, Dhashayani Vallatharasu”

On 25 April 2015, Muhammad Idham Bin Husni from 4E1 was invited by the Singapore Buddhist Lodge’s Education Foundation to represent 772 bursary recipients to deliver a speech to express his thoughts on receiving the bursary at the Presentation Ceremony. The ceremony was graced by Mrs Josephine Teo, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Transport, and Member of Parliament for Bishan- Toa Payoh GRC.It was indeed a rare honour for him and the school as he underwent a stringent assessment of character development, academic as well as co-curricular achievements.
Idham’s pursuit for academic excellence during his time at Changkat Changi Secondary School has always been inspiring. He has consistently been one of the top performers of his level. Idham is a very intelligent student, but his achievements are not restricted to academics only. In his Co-Curricular Activity, he is also Unit Sergeant Major of Changkat Changi Secondary School’s National Civil Defence Cadet Corp, mentoring his juniors and leading his Unit to collective goals and success. His achievements showed a character steeped in values of resilience and integrity, and are more note-worthy given his background. His all-round development and achievement have led him to gain this honour.
