Celebrations @ SST 2013

8:00 PM Posted by Genevieve No comments

 On the 15th of March 2013, SST held its third Celebrations @ SST. This day marks an important day to SST students as it is a time where they get awards for their academic achievements, holistic achievements and so on. On this day, SST comes together as a school community to celebrate the growth and success of the students. 

Before the official event started, parents of the award winners, the award winners and the teachers were invited to the Indoor Sports Hall (ISH) where they had a lovely buffet reception before making their own up to the Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH)

When the event officially began, Mr Chua, our principal, gave a speech to the parents about what SST is all about, what facilities they have and what programs SST offers to students. 

After that, the award ceremony started and students, ranging from Secondary 1 to Secondary 4 began to go on stage to receive their awards respectively. The awards were given by Mrs Chew and Mr Chua. The awards given out that day were the MOE Edusave Awards for Achievement, Good Leadership and Service (EAGLES), SST Character Award, MOE Good Progress Award, MOE Edusave Entrance Scholarship for Independent Schools (EESIS), MOE Edusave Yearly Awards, SST Entrance Scholarship (Secondary 1),   SST Top Student Award and the SST Book Prizes for the various levels and the SST Colours Award. The SST Colours Award is awarded to students who have shown outstanding performance representing SST in competitions and the EAGLES award is for students who excel in their Co-Curricular Activity and being active in community service. 

Once the awards were awarded to the recipients, there was a video shown, made by SST Media Club, to commemorate Friendship. Next up, there was a performance by 7 students, who used iPads and the software, “Garageband”. They received loud applause from the audience. They played the song “It’s my Life” by Bon Jovi. They used instruments such as the electric guitar, drums and the piano. 

After that, SST’s very own Dance Crew gave a performance where they danced like robots. That marked the end of the entire ceremony and parents filed out of the MPH and went to find their child.
