He helped to build resources for the effective teaching of Physics, and taught both Cambridge International Examinations ‘A’ level and International Baccalaureate Physics. He was appointed as teacher-in-charge of the Student Council to develop students’ leadership potential, and was also the Lead Tutor for Year 5 & 6 students, where he looked into the developmental and pastoral needs of senior students.

During his school days, Ronald played the trombone at The Chinese High School Military Band and Raffles Junior College Concert Band. He also performed with the NIE Symphonic Band in their annual concert. Ronald has a passion to develop students holistically, with an emphasis on character building and their ability to have a cohesive understanding of their society and physical world. He finds that Physics is the best medium to do so as this subject touches almost every aspect of life.
