Ann Wee NUS Social Work Alumni Award


The Ann Wee NUS Social Work Alumni Award was set up to recognise NUS Social Work alumni who have made major contributions to social work education and practice. The naming of the Award reflects the memory and affection we have for Mrs Ann Wee as the longest serving Head of the Department.

Mrs Wee was on the Panel of Advisors to the Juvenile Court for close to forty years. She was a member of the Women's Charter Review Committee, the Singapore Children's Society Adoption Sub-committee, and member of the Tribunal for the Maintenance of Parents. She had been a teacher and role model whose contribution in the social services was recognised by many public awards such as The Public Service Star (1972), The Public Service Star (Bar) (2004), Most Outstanding MCYS Volunteer Award (2004), MCYS Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award (2009), The Meritorious Service Medal (2010), NUSS Distinguished Member Award (2012), and the Singapore Women's Hall of Fame (2014).

She has inspired many in the profession to make sustained contributions to social work over the years including those that she had not taught.
