SINGAPORE: Well-wishes have been pouring in for the missing pupils and teachers at Tanjong Katong Primary School on Sunday after the school set up a site for people to pen notes of hope for those still not found.

The site was set up at 9am and will remain open until 5pm Sunday evening.

On five tables covered with white cloth near the school's entrance, members of the public and alumni laid bouquets and penned messages.

"Our prayers goes (sic) out to those who (are) still missing. Come home safe," read one note from a concerned parent and her child.

Gynaecologist Satya Tiwari, 50, also made a trip down to the school with her four children - all of whom were students at the school.

"The school is like our family. All the teachers are very professional and caring," said a tearful Dr Satya, who has had two of her daughters go on the annual Mount Kinabalu hike, in 2012 and 2013.

"This was a freak accident, it was unforeseen. When we heard the news our hearts were broken," she said. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
