82.7% of the Students Achieved a Minimum Pass in at least 5 Subjects

A Cedarian, Valliammai lMeena had done well in the 2013 O-level Examination.  She will be continuing her education at Raffles Junior College. Meena attributed her success to her parents, teachers and friends who had supported her during her studies. Her biggest challenge in secondary school was the Malay Special Programme.  She was able to overcome that due to her interest. After the examination in Nov 2013, she had a great sense of satisfaction with her overall performance.

“It does not matter where I am going to further my studies, but the fact that I put in my best effort for all the subjects I took, is most satisfying.”

The desire to secure a good job in the future in order to furnish a better life for her family provided Nadiah Mohammad Nasir the drive that she needed to achieve one of the highest accolades by emerging amongst the top three Malay students during the recent GCE ‘O’ Level Examinations.  Nadiah, who aspires to be an engineer, was determined to work hard in order to lighten the burden that her father, who works in cargo, carries to support the family of five. According to her father, Mohammad Nasir, Nadiah is a focused and independent learner who strives to do her best in everything she does. Her iron discipline, which she attributed to years of active involvement in her CCA, the National Cadet Corp (NCC), showed itself in the way she manages her time at home. Her daily routine includes revising at least one subject per day once she has completed her homework. Her hard work and perseverance paid off and she was rewarded with seven A1s and one A2 for her ‘O’ Levels, a pleasant surprise from her unsatisfactory performance in her prelim examinations.

Bringing Intellectual Property closer to the Youths
Perspectives from the local music industry

Singapore, 24 June 2011 – Some 145 secondary school students benefited from a practical hands-on experience about intellectual property (IP) in the music industry over a four-day camp, held in Singapore Polytechnic.

During the camp, participants aged 13-17 years old were able to harness their newfound knowledge and skills to create and perform original music compositions based on the theme, "What It Means to Be Original" in the first Originals IP Music Fiesta Song Composition Competition. After an intensive competition, the Guest of Honour, Ms Sim Ann, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Education and Law presented the winning team comprising of Siti Rajagopal, Cheng Hoi Ting, Lidiya Bte Muhammad Hidir of Cedar Girls' School with the prestigious Minister for Law Challenge Trophy! The winning team will embark on a valuable two-week internship with renowned recording studio, Ocean Butterflies Music (OB) later this year. OB introduced famed local artistes such as JJ Lin and A-do and this internship will give the winners a valuable insight into the music industry in areas such as music recording, artistes' liaison and album marketing. Under the guidance of an industry mentor, they will also have the opportunity to refine their composition and record their song professionally in the OB's recording studios.
