Singapore National Day Celebrations at EC
As Singapore celebrates its 50th birthday this year, GIIS-EC Campus embarked upon a fantastic way to celebrate it - creating our own mural - the SG50 Greenovation logo using small mirrors.
The Guest of Honour for the event was Mr. Charles Chong You Fook, Member of the Parliament, representing the Joo Chiat Single Member Constituency, and Deputy Speaker of Parliament. We also had members from the Siglapian Alumni Association, Mr. Gregory Polson, Head of School, World International School, many guests from the pioneer generation and teachers from Bedok Green Primary School. Apart from the guests, the other dignitaries present were the Senior members of the GIIS Management Team.
The programme started with the inauguration of the SG50 Greenovation logo by Mr. Charles Chong followed by the viewing of the scroll prepared by the students of GIIS EC as a tribute to late Prime Minister Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. Following the welcome address by the Principal, Ms. Melissa Maria, we had the flag hoisting ceremony by the GOH. The guests then got to witness the traditional Lion Dance performance, followed by Chinese Fan Dance, Malay Dance and Bhangra Dance performed by our students.
The Chief representative from the Singapore Book of Records, Mr. Elridge, presented our Principal, Ms. Melissa Maria with the certificate of achievement and that moment marked our official entry into the Singapore Book of Records.
In the morning, 20 students of Classes 4 and 5 were invited to BGPS (Bedok Green Primary School) for the SG50 celebrations. The programme commenced in the parade ground with the march past followed by the national anthem and pledge. Then, in the auditorium a number of spectacular programmes were lined up like the choir performance, Guzheng performance, Malay dance, Skit, Chinese dance and community singing led by the school choir.
