The School celebrated National Day by having a formal parade in the morning led by our distinguished three Uniformed Groups: NPCC, NCC and Red Cross Youth.
Students watched the parade from the hall, via a live video feed, to ensure that all were able to see the parade in full. This was followed by National Day classroom lessons, which focused on commemorating 50 years of National Service. Some male teachers came to school in their National Service uniforms, and shared their national service stories with the students.
After the lesson, it was back to the hall for the concert segment and the annual Greendale’s Got Talent event, in which students get to showcase their hidden talents ranging from singing, playing musical instruments and dancing.
The event also featured guest performances by our very own Greendale Orchestra and Greendale Chorale.
The Singapore National Day Awards are a means of recognising various forms of merit and service to Singapore. This year, a total of 4 322 individuals in 21 award categories received National Day Honours.
We are proud to announce that two of our staff members were awarded the honours as well. Mdm Halimah Bte Mohmad (Subject Head/Malay Language) was awarded the Commendation Medal, while Mr Goh Cheng Hian (HOD/Mother Tongue Languages) was awarded the Long Service Medal. We rejoice with both of them and look forward to more accolades for our staff!
The school organised an inter-class art competition as part of National Day Celebration. The theme for the art competition was “#OneNationTogether”. Sharing with you the winning art pieces. Congratulation and well done!!!
Greendale Secondary NCC and NPCC participated in the Punggol North National Day Observance Ceremony on 9 Aug 2017. The 36-member strong contingent, in their ceremonial No 1 uniform, formed main parade contingent of the ceremony. All eyes were on the cadets as they stood tall and proud on hard court of the Social Innovation Park to welcome the arrival of the reviewing officer, Mr Ng Chee Meng, Minister for Education, Second Minister for Transport, Advisors to Pasir-Ris Punggol GROs cum MP for Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC.
The drills were flawlessly executed throughout the ceremony under the command of their parade commander. Their sharp and well-synchronised movement impressed the spectators and made the entire parade looked like a mini NDP.
The cadets truly did the school proud on our Nation’s 52nd Birthday. Go Greendale!!!
