I was invited to be part of “The Special Awards Presentation Ceremony” by MOE. I am there to witness Yng Swan receiving Lee Kuan Yew Award for All-Round Excellence “LKY-ARE” from Minister Ong Ye Kung. Yng Swan was one of the student leaders from Punggol CC YEC’s biennial project – Project Ignite. I started mentoring Yng Swan since 2014 and she has achieved much since then. She graduated as the top student from Holy Innocents’ High School in 2016 and won the national STAR award. During her O level years, she returned back to Project Ignite 2 to mentor the new group of student leaders.
Abstract of the award:
The LKY-ARE is a national-level award that recognises well-rounded students who have excelled in both academic and non-academic spheres, and who exemplify positive character development, strong leadership qualities and commitment to service to the community.
I am happy to share that students from Holy Innocents’ High School ( HIHS @hihs_official ) has won several awards in the PAYM SLC Festival 2017. I was present to witness the ceremony. Minister Ong Ye Kung was the GOH for that afternoon. He presented the awards and specially mentioned the good work done by the students from HIHS in his speech. Phoebe and Jaynielle have both won the STAR Individual Award and Project Dough (2016) as well as Community YOUthSparks (2016) have clinched silver and gold team award respectively! The students from the Service Learning Club had organised the project themselves as part of their Service Learning Project together with Punggol CC YEC under Project Ignite 2016!
The Service Learning Club members work closely with the YECs to understand the needs of the community and implement projects that will benefit the community.
Looking forward for Project Ignite 2018!
Together with Holy Innocents’ High School, Punggol CC YEC co-organised Teens Conference 2017 in Holy Innocents’ High School today. This is the 3rd year that we have collaborated with HIHS and happy to have student leaders from various schools of Singapore coming together to make a change.
NECDC Mayor Mr Desmond Choo was present together with us and Cheng Lei moderated a panelist discussion. I was tagged to Mayflower Secondary School and they worked on the topic – Migrant Workers. The students went around the community collecting notes of thanks and encouragement for the migrant workers. They also presented their work when they returned back to school.
Below are some of the photos that I have taken.
