Late last year, three students, Nicole Neo (3A), Teo Kok Chun and Zhang Yuzhe (3C), participated in a project for our nation’s Jubilee Celebrations. The students were tasked to write an article on a person who has impacted Singapore across time. Our school had selected Ms Olivia Lum, Executive Chairman and Group CEO of Hyflux.
The students interviewed Ms Lum in person to find out how she had overcome her adversities in life in order to develop Hyflux to where it is today. Ms Lum ended the interview with advice to both students and fellow Singaporeans alike – to always be passionate in the choices we make in life.

Racial Harmony Day 2015
The school commemorated Racial Harmony Day on 21 July 2015.
The theme for Racial Harmony Day 2015 was Harmony in Our Hands. In order for Singapore to continue to enjoy harmony for years to come, we depend on our younger generation to play an active role in all aspects of our lives.
To help our students understand and respect the customs and traditions of different races so we can coexist peacefully, the school conducted several activities such as dressing up in traditional costumes for both teachers and students, conducting a talk cum quiz about different cultural practices in Singapore, revisiting traditional games and organising heritage trails for our students.
During the assembly talks, some meaningful videos were screened to help our students learn more about the consequences of not having religious harmony among different races in Singapore.
Our students getting a first-hand experience in learning and appreciating different cultures.
Learning Journey to Ethnic Enclave Area
On 9th July 2015, the Secondary One History students went to the different racial enclaves in Singapore for a learning journey. This trip was organised to help the students in their Historical Investigation (HI) Project. The students visited Chinatown, Little India and Kampong Glam. During the trip, they gathered sources to answer their HI question as they learn more about how these racial enclaves play a part in the lives of the early immigrants of Singapore. From this learning journey, the students got to know more about the historical and cultural significance of these places and they learnt more about how they can better contribute to the wellbeing of our heritage to our future generations.
