Our Singapore: An Evening Celebrating the Nation’s 54th Birthday

Our Singapore: An Evening Celebrating the Nation’s 54th Birthday

Our primary 5 Pathlighters and teachers attended the National Education (NE) Show in July - the annual rehearsals leading up to Singapore’s National Day Parade. Themed "Our Singapore", this year’s NE show celebrated Singapore’s bicentennial and reminded us of our collective ownership of Singapore.

Pathlighters beamed with national pride as they witnessed the marching contingent going through their paces and the spectacular display by the parachuting unit, Red Lions, as well as hair-raising aerobatic stunts by Singapore’s Air Force unit. This was followed by the parade’s show segment, which featured six acts packed with engaging and exciting performances showcasing our nation’s history. Amidst all the entertainment and spectacle, our students learned about how the past has shaped our nation and reflected on the future that we want to create for our nation.

May Pathlighters remember to not just cherish the achievements of our pioneers, but to also build on their achievements and be the pioneers of our nation’s future!
