STUDENTS WITH SENSE OF SELF-ENTITLEMENT LEFT TRASH BEHIND AT SUTD STADIUM AFTER SOCCER MATCH

Empt pet bottles, food packages and even shattered pieces from a supposedly glass bottle that got onto the running track. That was the aftermath of a soccer game by students from Bedok South Secondary School and Dunman Secondary School at the Singapore University of Technology and Design's track and field. What was even more appalling was their attitude of self-entitlement that there will be a cleaner to clean up their mess as they left the facility non-chalantly without telling any of the security staff and have any due consideration for the other users of the University's facility. We often make use and are grateful to the school for opening up their track and field for public use and wish not, because of such frequent misbehaviour that may cause the school to ban public users thereafter. These students ought to feel ashamed of themselves that we young adults voluntarily have to help the cleaner auntie to clear their rubbish for them, especially those shattered glass pieces on the tracks, note that there are also young children playing on the track and they may cut and injured themselves due to their irresponsible behaviour.

LAZY & SELFISH PRC SCHOLAR TRIES TO GAME OUR EDUCATION SYSTEM

This student constantly dozes off or plays his phone in lectures and tutorials, and for several hours straight. He has been blacklisted from CCA, brought into remedial lessons, and barely made it past J1. Spoke to him a bit and asked around his social circle along with mutual friends. Seems that he is in essence, trying to game the system. He's on a govt scholarship, but when asked further, has told us he doesn't really care about the A Levels. Rather, his intent is to take the SAT and have the A Levels as a excuse to be funded for his stay here, hence the almost zero effort in school. When asked about why he refuses to mingle around with others, he replied that he thinks Chinese is a superior language and hence doesn't bother improving his English to better interact with us. Now, part of me and my classmates has already given up and can't care less about him. The thing is, would it be the correct thing to inform the teachers of his attitudes and intentions "studying" here?

FRESH GRADUATES NEED TO REFLECT ON THEIR SELF-ENTITLED MENTALITY OR LOSE OUT TO FOREIGNERS

Fresh graduates are pickier than before, and are willing to accept only jobs which pay more. Many do not take into account the quality of their resumes or their exam results. They do not think about working their way up. Why would employers pay more for Singaporeans who are less willing to work hard, as compared to foreigners who can be more capable and are willing to learn? Rather than question why there are no jobs available, fresh graduates should instead ask themselves why they should be hired. The mindset of Singaporeans must change in order for them to be more competitive in the job market.
