This stamp, designed by Lim An-ling, was issued on 11 October 2018, and belongs to a set of four that you can see here.
This is the description of the stamps on the Singapore Post site:
Nineteenth-century Singapore was a vibrant commercial centre. But beneath the prosperity, Singapore remained undeveloped in many areas including education. There was little public demand for formal education and the government in British India at that time was unwilling to channel money into developing education, much less the education of girls.
This stamp issue depicts the early education and skills that girls received in Singapore.

An attractive set of stamps with an important message.ReplyDelete
Me too, I find the designs very attractive.Delete
An important stamp - crazy that girls' education was not considered important for so long.ReplyDelete
And still, in some places :(Delete
As our local government pushes for increased class sizes, it is heartwarming to see this one on one tutoring.ReplyDelete
Well, actually, we don't know. I don't think the program was so intensive!Delete
that is a beautiful, heartwarming stamp! And it is hard to believe that even nowadays, girls are deprived from education in some places on the account of housework and even early marriage....ReplyDelete
Beautiful theme for today's 'e'!ReplyDelete
I was very happy to receive this from Maria.Delete
