To celebrate the special and significant role of teachers in life and leadership, Lim Siong Guan and Joanne Lim, the co-authors of The Leader, The Teacher & You and Winning with Honour, have established THE LEADING FOUNDATION to support programmes in education and leadership, with a special interest in nurturing educators.

Since 2014, THE LEADING FOUNDATION has been sponsoring The Leading Foundation Teacher Award annually to honour excellent early childhood and special education teachers in Singapore. The Leading Foundation Teacher Award was the first award established in Singapore to honour early childhood educators, and the award encourages and recognises excellence in the care and teaching of children in early childhood and special education schools to:

  • Reward and honour outstanding and dedicated educators who have made significant impact in the lives of their students and those they work with.

  • Affirm the pivotal role of teachers in the care and development of students, especially pre-school children and children with special needs in our society.

THE LEADING FOUNDATION is administered by the Community Foundation of Singapore.
