Bendemeer MRT Staff Helps Lost Student Find Her Way To School
Navigating Singapore’s public transport system can be daunting when you are new to it, especially for young children heading out on their own.
A Primary 1 (P1) student found herself quite lost recently when she was separated from her sister at Bendemeer MRT station on their way to school.
Fortunately, she sought help from station staff, who accompanied her all the way to her intended destination to ensure that she arrived safely.
The station staff has since received widespread praise for his kindness.

Last Sunday (17 Sep), SBS Transit Ltd shared a story of how a station staff at Bendemeer MRT station helped a lost student find her way back to school.
It all started when six-year-old Gwen Tan lost sight of her older sister while they were heading to school from the station.
Although Gwen knew she had to alight at Mattar MRT station, she was unsure of how to reach St. Margaret’s Primary School from there.
She then approached an Assistant Station Manager named Muhammad Farhan bin Mohammad for help.
Once Mr Farhan confirmed with staff at Mattar MRT station that Gwen’s school was nearby, he decided to accompany the child to school as he did not want her to travel alone.
From Bendemeer, they took a ride to Mattar just a couple of stops away.
Along the way, Mr Farhan also soothed Gwen’s nerves by assuring her that she would soon be reunited with her sister.
