Inter-class Junior & Senior Drama Competitions

Our inter-class drama competition is held every year. All classes from S.2 to S.6 produce a play at the audition. Eight classes make it to the Finals. Five prizes, including the Best Play, the Best Original Script, the Best Stage Management, the Best Actor and the Best Actress are presented to both junior forms and senior forms.

S1-S3 General Knowledge Quiz and Spelling Bee

This competition is for S.1 to S.3 students. Representatives of each class gather in an afternoon to get the better of their counterparts by spelling the most number of correct words and giving the right answers to questions about the world. Winners of each form then progress to the Finals where they have to beat the best of the other junior forms to become THE BEST OF THE BEST!

S5 Scrabble Scramble

Scrabble Scramble was first introduced by the English Guides. They started by holding a challenge against Miss Gill, our NET, at recess and after school. Slowly, more students joined in and made their words. As there was such eagerness displayed by the students, Scrabble Scramble will continue and involve more classes. Stay tuned for the announcements of this year’s Scrabble Scramble.

English Guides help to promote the use of English in our school through conducting English Morning Assemblies every Tuesday, mingling and interacting with schoolmates in English, as well as helping out at various English school activities.
