On the 8th of August 2011, SST celebrates its second National Day Celebration. The performance kick start with a flag march in ceremony by SST's Singapore Youth Flying Club members, who brought in the national flag and placed it on the stage. Thereafter, it was the singing of the National Anthem.

Principal Mr Chua Chor Huat then delivered the National Day message. The message highlighted some of Singapore's strengths and achievements over the years, and it serves as a reminder for us to move forward as one nation.

Then came the "commercial break", an interesting video about how Singapore had overcome her problems in the past in order to become the best today. Some of the problems and issues addressed were housing problems, water problems, and tranportation in the past and present. Then came the Sing-along session with the Sec 2 NE Ambassadors with the song "We Will Get There", after which the 2 hosts returned and continued with their game show.

Next stop, the second video were footages of SST students and staff members wishing Singapore a happy birthday to the song "One People, One Nation, One Singapore". The NE committee gave out special SST funpacks containing a Singapore flag and the SST badge which had been made for the celebration, among other items. Armed with the national flag in their hands, everyone arose and sang to the tune of the next song for the sing-along, performed by Sec 1 NE Ambassadors.

But the day was not over yet. Everyone had to form into a heart shape in the centre of the hall and recite the Singapore pledge, sing the National Anthem, and a "Happy Birthday" song to Singapore.
The Pledge Taking Moment
In all, the celebration was a fantastic experience for everyone. Being the last celebration in SST's old campus and having to move to a new one next year, this celebration is going to be an unforgettable one.
