On the 5th of September 2013 this year, the school gathered together in Cheng Yi Auditorium to celebrate a special day, Teachers’ Day.
The theme of this year’s event is “T-factor”, as we would like to recognize how each and every teacher we have possesses unique qualities that make them who they are and special in their own ways.
The concert featured many amazing performances put up by our talented batch mates who had practiced tirelessly to display their appreciation for our teachers’ hard work.
