2018 International Friendship Day

~ Article contributed by Kiran Nathani

The school celebrated International Friendship Day (IFD) on Thursday, 05 April 2018. The theme this year was ASEAN countries. Patsy, Kim Meng, Janice, Pop and Kiran from the PSG headed this event.

There was an overwhelming response to our call for sponsorship and we are happy to announce that in a matter of days, 30 vouchers, along with a lot of scrumptious goodies were received. Thank you parents, for all your love and support!

Other than the huge International Friendship Day banner, posters were placed at the canteen and around the school. To help students understand more on ASEAN countries and cultures, ASEAN country flags and small strips of colourful papers with fun facts were place on the tables in the canteen.

On the day of the event, 30 parent volunteers came to school as early as 7:30am. The Instagram contest was a hit amongst the students as they could put on ethnic costumes and take pictures using the props provided. 

Students participated enthusiastically and vouchers were awarded to students with the best pictures and captions.

The canteen became livelier during recess time as music of popular songs from ASEAN countries were played in the background. Students were seen swarming to another popular booth - “Quiz and Win”.  100 questions based on ASEAN countries that were posed and students who could answer these questions were rewarded with their favourite goodies.

It was a great opportunity for PSG to work with the school to organise this fun and meaningful event. 

Once again, TKSS Rocks!

2018 TK Games Carninval / Sec 4 Evening Study Fund Raising Sale

20th April 2018 was a day burst with adrenaline rush! Students from different levels couldn’t hide their excitement as they try out the interesting array of games and sports that were carefully planned by the school.  

On this day, TK PSG set up a booth for Secondary 4 Evening Study Fund Raising Sale. The main item on sale was the ever-popular ice popsicles. As expected, this all-time favorite item was sold out within a short span of time!

Not too long later, dark clouds loomed overhead. The heavy down pour was the exact opposite of what started out as a bright, hot and sunny day. Some of the activities had to stop due to the sudden change in weather conditions but this did not dampen the high spirits of the students and parents alike. Additional snacks were given out along with the popsicles. With this little surprise, delight and appreciative grin was noted on many students’ faces. It was an awesome and a memorable experience for all of us. 

                                                                         This is one of the fund raising events for Secondary 4 Study Fund. The proceeds of the sale will be used to provide subsidized food and beverages for Sec 4 students, who attend evening study sessions during their prelims and GCE 'O' level exams. 

A BIG THANK YOU to all TK PSG members for all the efforts in making this event a success!
