SurreAllan on Wed, 11/27/2013 - 17:49Beyond all the condemnations and disparaging remarks that are being thrown about, has anyone considered that these instruments...whether old or not....can be repaired and refurbished, to be donated to those more needy? Such as an orphanage or the less privileged children who would love to learn music, and for whom the means to afford such an instrument might be beyond them or their immediate providers. I know this fact is lost among those around us, especially with the growing affluence in our society. But the love of music knows no social boundaries, and I only lament that the effort could not have been made for such wonderful musical instruments to find more deserving and new homes. This goes beyond the necessary bureaucratic red-tape and procedures, and has way more with common sense and supposed social kindness in which we are 'trying' to inculcate in Singapore society.

littlecow on Sat, 08/17/2013 - 14:54I think schools are not allowed to sell the instruments, they can only "condemn" them, i.e. disposed. And only upon condemn, then they are allowed to replenish their stock to buy new instruments. Seriously, someone in MOE should look into this area.
