On this grand day parents gathered to see their children go up stage to receive their very first award at SST. The juniors who watched the pioneer batch receive awards might get even more motivated to study for their next 4 years in SST.
The day kicked off with the arrival of the Guest of Honor, Dr. Su Guaning.

This was followed by Mr. Chua, the principal of SST, giving his speech about how SST started, how it has progressed through the years and to thank the staff of SST and everyone who had been there to support the school. Throughout the speech, he showed presentations and videos of the students participating in events like the "Apple Leadership Summit" and the GCP trips.
After his speech, Dr. Su went up on stage for his speech about working with SST to create a new study environment for students.
After that, the prize-giving ceremony took place. It was what everyone, especially the parents were anticipating for as they took out their cameras, wanting to get a snapshot of their child on stage receiving a prize. First up was the SST Book Prize, followed by the Edusave Entrance Scholarship, the yearly Edusave Independent Schools, SST Entrance Scholarship, SST achievement award and lastly the Top Student award, which was won by Lai Zi Ying of S2-01.
After the prize giving ceremony, it was time for the performances to begin. Two enthusiastic emcees went up on stage to introduce the first performance, Daryl Lam playing the tune "菊花台" on the guzheng (古箏).
Next up, the SST wushu team showed their incredible martial art skills. With energetic music blaring through the sound systems and the team displaying their skill, it made everyone energetic .
Then, Ng Kai Chek from S2-01 sang Jason Mraz's "I'm Yours"
After that melodic performance came another one, Chio Jia Le playing Chopin's "Fantasie Impromptu".
Finally, SST's first speech day ended off with the guitar ensemble playing harmoniously, ending the first ever Celebrations@SST.
