Ping Yi Secondary School Orientation Day, Singapore

Yes, I am still on posts about my January trip to Singapore! And, I've got a few more to go! BigR had work to do that day, so I decided to follow him to check out how orientation day is for a Singaporean high school.

The event started with introductory session on the education system in Singapore, the LEAPS system with an objective to develop students to become responsible, well-rounded and dynamic. The approach is to develop students in the areas of academics, co-curricular activities and character-development programme. During intervals, there were performances conducted by the students.

Outside the auditorium in the school compounds, members of different CCA were busying away with preparations. Here are some of the clubs, societies and activities in Ping Yi Secondary School.
