A proud alumna of PCGS, I have always had fond memories of my school days. My mother’s hard work in ensuring I was sent to the best school in Penang will always be an inspiration in pushing me to accomplish great things and persevere against adversity. The teachers in PCGS together with my mother have always believed and seen the exceptional leader in me. Because of their beliefs, I have proven that anyone who is determined and instilled with good values and great principles will emerge victorious.
