The annual NUS High Speech Day acknowledges and celebrates the academic and holistic accomplishments of our students.
The ceremony started off with a performance by NUS High’s Dance Club. Following this, Mrs Lee delivered her address, welcoming the Year 1s and reviewing the events of Orientation 2019. She also highlighted the achievements of our students, which included our students’ participation in ISEF 2018, volunteer work done by a group of students who travelled to Cambodia last December, and various national and international achievements. In addition, Mrs Lee announced that a book concerning NUS High’s short but composite history would be published.
Our Guest Of Honour, Mr Tan Kiat How, CEO of IMDA, gave an engaging presentation on cybersecurity in this digital age. His light-hearted presentation incited many laughs from the audience.
After this, the awards were presented to our students. Finally, the principal thanked the staff who have nurtured our students and led the school to success. She also presented an artwork to Mr Tan as a show of our appreciation. Our melodic High School Choir and Chinese Orchestra closed the ceremony with a touching performance before the prize winners and guests proceeded to the canteen and library for refreshments.
