Viral videos of teachers having special greetings with their students have populated the web.

For instance, in the United States, a North Carolina teacher has personalised handshakes with each student of his.

In Thailand, a teacher also went viral for her special greetings:

Now, it appears that a teacher in Singapore has adopted a similar practice.

Four different greetings

This is according to a video uploaded to Facebook by DPS Primary Blossoms, an international school in Singapore located at Kovan.

The video shows primary school students waiting in line to be greeted by their teacher.

The students get to choose between four different possible greetings: a hug, handshake, hi-five, or special dance.
