Authorities to withhold PSLE scores of book-burning students

Posted on 08 October 2013

Book-burning fiends will not get secondary school posting until 2020.


The relevant authorities have launched a full-scale investigation after a photo showcasing a group of Singaporean students and their parents engaging in post-PSLE book-burning festivities went public.

Book-burning in Singapore is not a crime — yet. But the authorities launched an investigation because the year-end performance bonus for civil servants is coming up.

Within one night, at least half a dozen students and their respective parents — or parent, because one of the children don’t know who his father is — were identified from the photo.

The authorities revealed that the students who engaged in the book-burning celebration will have their PSLE grades withheld.

And they will not get their secondary school posting until 2020.

When interviewed, Qin Shi Huang, one of the students who burned at least 45 books in one night, said: “I solemnly state my regret for burning the books.”

“But it was fun.”
