Passing of Knowledge
The Passing of Knowledge sculpture (2003) by local sculptor Victor Tan Wee Tar was presented by the Rotary Club of Singapore. The sculpture depicts his interpretation of the 4-Way Test, a philosophy embraced by Rotarians worldwide.
The 4-Way Test:
Of the things we think, say or do:
1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
