Akshita Sharma wins the “Outstanding Story” Award

The judges were looking for a newly created coding with the theme “Time Machine” using original idea and innovative creation of multiple Scratch objects and elements to design stories and animations.

Akshita was passionate about coding from a young age. Her journey began from drafting a story on notepad and moving on to building blocks designs of her project using Scratch, creating faces, costumes, rooms, and backdrops. She used coding and logic to make the project work together!

Model Environmental Summit (MES)

It was a great learning experience at The Model Environmental Summit (M.E.S) as students got to learn about climate change and other environmental issues. A meaningful and unique conference designed on the principles of MUN (Model United Nations) to create a platform to discuss anthropogenic environmental changes in various countries and immediate actions that can be taken to reverse or end it.

The summit was a great opportunity for share knowledge on the problems of the environment and discuss and debate potential solutions. The event welcomed a representative from Animal Concerns Research & Education Society (ACRES) and a charity sum of $500 was donated to the society. Funds were also used to purchase 15 saplings to start a community garden in Chai Chee Elderly Blocks.

Music Concert

Another memorable CAS Activity by our IBDP Year 2 was “REWIND”- a musical concert organized by our students, led school band - "Volante Musical Band" on the 31st of August 2022. A student conceived & organized musical extravaganza brought together a series of beautiful songs that mesmerized the audience. The main aim was to raise funds and spread awareness of mental health issues faced by the youths. The funds raised was donated to Singapore Association for Mental Health. A great learning journey for our IB Year 2 students, great collaboration, commitment, perseverance, and leadership skills were honed as they worked through the challenges to make a difference in the community in their own innovative ways.

Aanya Rao -The Diana Award recipient
The Diana Award 2022

Congratulations to Aanya Rao (IBDP Year 1, 2022-24)! She is one of the recipients of “The Diana Award 2022". One of the highest globally recognised awards a young person can achieve for social action or humanitarian efforts and empowers young people to make positive change! The award established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, is given out by the charity of the same name and has the support of both her sons, The Duke of Cambridge, and The Duke of Sussex.

In 2018, Aanya was accompanying her relative to his dialysis sessions, when she was struck by the monochromatic feel in the dialysis centre. In June 2020, Aanya founded ‘Art:Connect’, a student-led initiative connecting the student art community with residents and patients of healthcare centres. Their philosophy is underpinned by the slogan, “Art can, and will, heal the world”. In the last 18 months, the organisation has grown to 40+ volunteers from schools across Singapore, aiming to showcase the immense talent of young people and their art for the good of the community, and leverage the “healing power of art” to help patients and healthcare workers through their most difficult times.
