Speech Day 2017

The torrential rains didn’t manage to put a damper on last Friday’s Speech Day, as both our students and staff heroically forged on! This event is meant to commemorate the students’ excellent academic achievements, and hopes to inspire more students to do the same. Tan Sri Dr. Koh Tsu Koon, our guest speaker, gave a very uplifting speech, which was very much appreciated by the audience. The interlude featured musical performances by the students, and was a ray of sunshine in an otherwise very rainy day!
