A Memorable National Day Celebrations
Written by: Nur Batrisyia Binte Azman (3E4)
On the 8th of August, we assembled at the parade square to witness the national day parade. Our uniformed groups stood at attention as they took the cue from the parade master to start the march pass. Not only did the participants march with confidence and pride, their synchronised pace also showed much unity and precision. The parade then culminated in a ‘20’ formation to mark our school’s 20th anniversary celebrations.
After the parade, we went back to our classes for the interactive lesson based on the National Day package. Then, we headed to the school hall where we were greeted by our friendly hosts.
The concert began with a skit emphasising the importance of harmony and unity among Singaporeans. It taught us to cherish and remember the contributions of the generation before us who had shaped Singapore into what it is today. Another highlight was a song and quiz segment which required the audience to guess the lyrics of traditional National Day songs. Those who answered correctly walked away with attractive prizes.
In the grand finale, students participated in a mass sing-along session led by the choir. It was a memorable day for all of us as we sang our hearts out to celebrate our beloved country Singapore’s 54th birthday.
