Original Blog Post (17 July 2018):

This past June, one of our Secondary 3 footballers, Muhamad Raqin Bin Shamrin from 3T1, was selected to be one of only four youth players to represent Singapore at the Allianz Junior Football Camp in Bangkok, Thailand.

This trip is on 16 – 19 July 2018, and is fully sponsored by the organizer. If he fares well in Bangkok against representatives from various other Asian countries, he could be selected for the Allianz Junior Football Camp in Munich, Germany which will be conducted by coaches and professional players of the famous German club Bayern Munich.

To get this opportunity, he attended trials that tested his football skills as he was pitted against youths from all around Singapore. In addition, in the final round, he had to go through an interview before being selected.

We wish Raqin all the best!

UPDATE:

We are pleased to share that Raqin is selected for the Allianz Junior Football Camp in Munich, Germany!

The camp will be held on 27 – 31 August 2018.

He, and another selected Singaporean, had a successful trip in Bangkok last week, where they played alongside representatives from various Asian countries such as China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Laos, Taiwan and Thailand.

Congratulations Raqin! May he fly the Greendale and Singapore flags proud!

Greendale Chorale Gold (Orientale Concentus 11)

Evocation 2018

On 2 June 2018, Greendale Chorale took part in Evocation 2018, a concert organised by EVOKXEVOKX is a young adult choir who seeks to involve youth in choral production while raising awareness of social causes.

In Evocation 2018, 5 choirs, including Greendale Chorale, came together to help raise funds for Community Health Assessment Team, a national outreach programme under the Institute of Mental Health. We had a great time learning from other choirs and performing the finale item, Omnia Sol (Let Your Heart Be Staid), with everyone!

Orientale Concentus 11

Greendale Chorale took part in Orientale Concentus 11 on 2 July 2018, held at SOTA Concert Hall. In this international competition, choirs from all over the world came to compete for the grand prize of $20,000!

We saw choirs from all over South East Asia, as well as from China, Taiwan and South Korea.

In our category, we faced off quality choirs from Philippines, Indonesia and other secondary school choirs from Singapore. We are proud to announce that of the six choirs in our category, only 2 were awarded Gold and we are one of them!

It was an amazing experience as we managed to invite one of the adjudicators to come to our school to conduct a masterclass for us. We also had the opportunity to listen to the winners of all the different categories on 4 July in Esplanade Concert Hall. Indeed, with these learning experiences, we aim to do our best for SYF next year!
