Yearbook 2009




The Spirit of RP Over the last three years you have seen “Learning with a Difference”, the Republic Polytechnic tagline, everywhere. By now you’ll have realised that you have learnt with a difference. Soon, you’ll be making a difference at the workplace, university and in whatever you choose to do. Bank on it. When faced with the question, “What exactly is the Republic Polytechnic spirit?” I trust you have found the answer – it is the courage that we collectively have to venture to new frontiers and the firm belief that, Yes, we can do it. We journeyed together over the last three years; RP kept to its promise to provide you with the opportunity to learn differently and develop skills that are vital for survival in today’s workplace, and the workplace of the future. These skills will stand the test of time, as they come with a life-long guarantee. We are proud that you rose to the challenge of learning differently and made a stand against the doubts of others about the a-problem-a-day pedagogy, which you have since, become experts in. RP believes in this pedagogy because of its realistic practical applications in the real world. We’re aware that it’s not an easy journey for everyone. Now that you’ve arrived at your destination and have graduated, we hope you’re seeing the benefits; benefits which your many caring “facis”, whom you have befriended in your respective Facebook accounts, brought about in this enriching educational journey. Hereafter, the spirit of RP will carry you onwards. Good luck and stay in touch.

Message from Principal/CEO Dear Graduand, Congratulations on successfully completing your diploma. This yearbook is part of the celebration of your graduation which is one of the most joyous and looked-forward-to occasions in any student’s life. You will have heard over the years of your study at RP about our unique Problem-Based Learning pedagogy, which aims to produce outstanding graduates, who will make a significant difference and stand out from the crowd. This is no empty promise. Although we are relatively young, some of our graduates have already made a mark in the workforce and in universities here and abroad. Our all-rounded education has delivered results year after year. • Sapna Devi enrolled in RP’s International Programme in Biomedical Sciences, which gave her direct entry into the final year of the Bachelor in Biomedical Science degree conferred by Australia’s Monash University. She was offered a scholarship to continue her studies and went on to earn 1st Class Honours at the varsity. She is now pursuing her PhD at Monash under another scholarship scheme. • Woon Wee Phuay, an RP Engineering graduate, topped his cohort and clinched the Tay Eng Soon Gold medal. He is currently working as a service engineer at Mettler Toledo, and will be pursing his engineering degree at the Nanyang Technological University this year. • Alex Sharma graduated from RP at the head of his cohort doing the Diploma in Information Technology. He was awarded the Lee Kuan Yew medal for excelling in Mathematics and Science. He will be pursuing his Bachelor’s degree when he completes his National Service. • Ghazi Alqudcy is a pioneer graduate of the School of Technology for the Arts. He has won a scholarship from the Singapore Technologies Endowment Programme to study Digital Filmmaking at the Nanyang Technological University. He is one of the first students to receive this new scholarship. I would like to urge you to reach your full potential beyond RP now that you have been equipped with invaluable skills in communication, decision-making, teamwork and leadership. With hard work, honesty and empathy, I’m confident you will succeed in the future. Mr Yeo Li Pheow Republic Polytechnic

Message from Deputy Principal (Corporate Services) Graduates 09, congratulations! Many of you were among the 5,000 plus students who arrived three years ago when we opened our Woodlands campus. In a way, you are RP’s special pioneers. You are the first group of students to spend three years here in this new campus. Your predecessors in RP all spent one or more years at our temporary Tanglin campus, while the earliest batch of RP graduates studied in Tanglin only. The Tanglin campus was much smaller. The teaching facilities were in two “campuses” straddling Kay Siang Road. Facility rooms and laboratories were accommodated in former schools and high- and low-rise offices. The place lacked the comprehensive sports and cultural amenities that you have in Woodlands. The library and canteen were much smaller. The Woodlands Campus is different. It is designed by world-class Japanese architect Fumiko Maki supported by our local DP Architects. The teaching and support facilities are intended for 13,200 students. Our TRCC theatre is considered one of the best in Singapore. Despite these differences, you share the same RP tradition as your predecessors and the many who will come after you. In our Problem-Based Learning process, learning is self-directed and teamwork is encouraged. Most of you are more articulate in public. Your IT skills have improved by leaps and bounds each day. Those involved in sports, culture or service have grown more confident. Most important of all, you have good friends. Today, let me wish each you the best as you step out of RP. From what I see, I’m sure you will succeed as you move on to the next stage in your career or studies. Mr Eden Liew

Message from Deputy Principal (Academic Services) It seems like yesterday that the RP community moved from one charming campus to another in early 2006, just as most of you joined. How time flies. We are proud of your achievements. You are now graduating from an institution of higher learning, receiving a diploma as a mark of that distinction. This is no doubt a major milestone in your life. Yet it is only a beginning and the best is yet to come. Graduation is merely a form of recognition of an achievement and a stepping stone for a bright future. The learning environment at RP is unique. You have experienced the value of teamwork, social interaction, and critical evaluation with an open mind. You have on a daily basis formed opinions, defended them in front of others and reflected on your day. You have seen the possible fallibility of your ideas, of what other apparently believable groups of people think, and even of established systems. You have learnt the values of rationality and respectful scepticism. These experiences will hold you in good stead throughout your life. The specific discipline-based knowledge you have acquired will shape your contributions to the economy in the immediate future, but you will need to acquire new knowledge and new skills to keep going for a lifetime. You should keep learning, for learning is a continuing journey. We salute those who stood by with you as you tried to keep up with your studies, despite difficulties and obstacles. We encourage you to keep in touch with RP because RP will still have a role in your life, although in a different way. I wish you a happy and bright future.

Dr W.A.M Alwis

Message from Director, The Republic Cultural Centre The Republic Cultural Centre, or TRCC, has the pleasant task of being the focal point of all the performing arts groups at RP under the management of CREATE. Republic. We have a total of 25 groups, covering dance, music, theatre and cultural activities. The Centre provides them with an environment that enables them to pursue artistic development and creative expression. Our task is made especially meaningful because we have on campus amazing talents, passion and willingness to experiment and engage audiences. This is the envy of many other institutions, and has earned RP the reputation of being the most happening and artistically vibrant institute of higher learning in Singapore! Together we put up three Festivals: the Momentum Dance Festival, the IGNITE! Music Festival and Reflections, which is RP’s Community Arts Festival. In addition to these and our weekly Arts Platter series we have put up around 120 art performances that touched an amazing 70,000 people. Many of the graduates today played an important role in achieving this success -as performers, technical crew, front of house crew or producers. RP is grateful and indebted to all of you. Your efforts and passion have inspired us. With your continued support, I’m sure that students who follow in your footsteps will continue your fine tradition of giving your best to entertain, engage and educate the community. On behalf of RP and the Centre, I wish all of you the best in your future pursuits and invite you to always be a part of our family. Mr Ganesh Kalyanam

Message from Deputy Director, Office of Student and Graduate Affairs Time really flies when we’re having a good time. I recall when we were at Tanglin campus, surrounded by lush greenery, at the tiny but cosy canteen; where the front of the house was a stage that students would hang out at and Open House was like a snakes-and-ladders game among the buildings. Such good times were brought along when we moved to Woodlands. We have since grown with the building and the opening of the RP Adventure Learning Centre, the commissioning of the Tan Ean Kiam Service-Learning Centre and the Guinness Record Setting Leapfrog activity we held, to name a few memorable moments. 2009 marks an important milestone in your learning journey. For all of us, it is a time to reminisce and celebrate success, as well as a time of reflection as you graduate. In your three years here, you’ll no doubt have formed bonds and links with classmates, facilitators and fellow Republicans. Life after RP should not be different. Come join us at Club Republic (www. rp.sg/grad) and on Facebook (RP Graduate), and at the exciting activities that Graduate Services has lined up for you. We are looking to set up an alumnus Interest Group to further enhance our relationship. Last but not least, on behalf of the Office of Student and Graduate Affairs, we wish you all the best. May the start of this new journey be a journey unlike no other; and the experience itself so enjoyable that you will do it even at great cost, for the sheer sake of doing it. ~ It is good to have an end to journey towards; but it is the journey that matters in the end ~ Ursula K. LeGuin Mr Wilson Ang

BUZZER BAZAAR Buzzer Bazaar 2008, held on June 26 and 27, combined creative recycling, hot music and fund-raising. One highlight was the Best Concept Stall Competition cum Recycling Competition, where stall holders were encouraged to use recycled materials to design 1.7m tall umbrellas. Over the two days, staff and students were entertained by music from Jammerz Arena, Replug and Symphony IGs. Other performances from CREATE.Republic included foot-stomping, hip gyrating performances by Dikir Barat, Indian Cultural Group, Hip Hop and Modern Dance IGs.

“One dollar, one dollar! Very cheap! Everything must go!�

At the bazaar, customers could do electronic purchasing, using their ez-link card. Part of the proceeds from the sales went to the Student Welfare Fund. Everyone had a great time, from the students who ran the stalls, learning a thing or two about what it entails to have a small business, to the many students who visited and supported the stalls.

The awards for Sportsman of the Year and Sportswoman of the Year went to Mckenrick Lim Jun Sheng of SHL and Lavendar Ong Jie Xian of SAS respectively. Dendapanni Ravisankar of SEG was honoured with Male Captain of the Year award, while Marjory Kho of STA took home the award for Female

At the event, the recipients from each category – Sports for Good, Republic Honors, Sports Development Grant and Meritorious Awards – proudly made their way to the stage as their names were announced. Following Greek tradition, each had a wreath placed on his head before he was presented with his medal.

Curiosity, excitement, uncertainty. These were just some of the emotions felt by RP’s new intake of close to 5000 students during the start of the three-day Orientation Programme (OP) held on 2nd April 2008. However with highlights such as the inaugural Leapfrog Guinness World Record attempt and pure Jam ‘n’ Hop entertainment, the campus-wide event forged a strong Team Republic spirit and brought out the Champion in each new student, in line with the OP theme for this year: There are Champions amongst Us!

Polytechnic Forum

Campus Life!

The Polytechnic Forum 2008 was a fiveday residential programme, held from Sept 16 to Sept 19, at Downtown East. As participants embarked on exploring the main theme, “Connecting Youths in the Changing World”, they were engaged in the P.Connected! networking session in June, and pre-forum and actual forum activities in September. Quotes from Participants The Forum taught us about real life issues and how to go about solving them as a team. The process of solving these problems was structured just like RP’s PBL system.– Satish Kumar s/o Murugesen The Forum evolved from something serious to fun! It was an experience that no money can buy. It bonded many people from different walks of life. – Gwendolyn Tan It was great seeing everyone had a wide smile on their faces when heading home, even though they were dead beat. – Ching Lian Li. 16

Pre-University Seminar “Global City, Home for All” was the main theme for the Pre-University Seminar 2008 organised by Meridian Junior College and the Ministry of Education. Student participants got together earlier to come up with ways to explore the seminar’s topic, “Talent Unlimited: Exploring New Niches, Exploring the Road Less Travelled”. Some highlights were a Digital Chase around NTU, tapping the latest IT capabilities, and a Sandcastle Challenge that brought all the participants together in a mass envisioning and construction project in line with the main theme. What participants said:

The preparation was thought-provoking and injected with countless internal debates and constructive arguments that provided the foundation for a convincing presentation – Muhammad Shahamir Bin Shahruddin Working in such a large team, really showed teamwork.

RP students were delighted when President S R Nathan made his first visit to the new Woodlands campus. To prepare for the occasion, students created banners and composed heart-warming messages to President Nathan. Students from the Silat, Beats Encore and Lion Dance Troupe extended the welcome by putting up rousing performances for the VIPs.


MOMENTUM Five dance groups from the Republic Polytechnic and their guests put their best foot forward at Momentum 2008. This was held over two nights on May 28 and 29 at the TRCC Theatre. The event brought out the best in every participant from the Hip Hop, Social Dance and Modern Dance IGs, and the Malay Cultural and Indian Cultural Groups. Expectations were high as the stage was set to entertain the audience of about 2,000 who packed the venue.

Campus Life!

The guest performers were from Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s NRA, Greenridge Secondary School, Dance Spectrum International, Tanglin Secondary School, Hwa Chong Institution (College Section), Crazy Children, SMU InDancity, St Andrew’s Junior College and NUS Dance Ensemble. They undoubtedly raised the bar for RP performers. But eventually, the RP spirit shone as the curtain fell on the gala night, when the performers received a standing ovation. All of us knew then that we had done RP proud. Quotes from a participant: “I will always look back and treasure the good times I had and look forward to seeing more brilliant moments in Momentum 2009.”

REFLECTIONS

As always, the festival aims to provide a much needed platform for local practitioners of all art forms. The name “Reflections” also implies that the show mirrors the vibrant arts culture among our youth, as well as facilitates deeper reflection into how youth perceive the arts, express the arts and how they like to experience the arts. This year’s line-up showcased the myriad arts genres that our students are involved in, and was in keeping with the theme of “Celebrating Youth and Arts”.

Round de Campus Relay

About 300 students – mostly from RP, and some invited athletes from the other polytechnics – took part in the Round de Campus Relay. The event allowed athletes to compete in an atmosphere of friendship. For many, it was also a chance to revel in the simple joy of running. The four-person teams were made up of two males and two females, who had to complete a 6km route. A team of students from SHL finished first in the Interschool/ Centre category. They covered the distance in a time of 22 minutes, 56 seconds.

A total of 39 staff and student teams swam lap after lap tirelessly to complete 5,558 laps in 165 minutes at RP’s first Mass Swim. That is equivalent to covering 277.9km in 2 hours and 45 minutes! While most teams completed about 200 laps in that time, seven managed to do even more. The event on Aug 1, 2008, was organised by the OSG and the Aquatic IG to promote a healthy lifestyle among RP students and staff through water sports and activities. It was also an opportunity for all participants to challenge themselves to the maximum.

Message from President,

RP 6th Student Council Executive Committee AY08/09 Hi pals! By the time we receive this book we’ll be graduates and a step closer towards the working world. So this is my final piece… Three years have passed in a flash. RP broadened our views and, in one way or another, developed us positively. When we stepped into RP and began to adapt ourselves to its unique learning system of research, presentation and discussion, we picked up important problem-solving skills that will serve us well as we step out of RP. But the information we learnt in class may not all be relevant in our careers. It’s why education is a life-long learning process for success. I urge all of you to take this opportunity to reflect on and join me in thanking RP for what it has given us in the way of caring facilitators and friends. Each has played a significant role in shaping and making a difference to our lives. As we move on, how can we keep in touch? MSN, Friendster and Facebook are some ways but lack the personal touch. The best platform would be to join the alumni club, Club Republic. And instead of waiting for it to organise gatherings, we should take initiative to organise these ourselves. I recently read about a group of senior citizens tracking their classmates from 40 years back. I hope we won’t wait 40 years to get in touch again. On behalf of the members of the 6th Student Council, I wish you the best in all that you do in the future. Edmund Goh Wen Yao

From the tiny details at the point of entry into the venue till departure, its success has been a result of the months of vigorous planning.

The students participated in the Complementary and Alternative Medicine Technology Day 2007 seminar organised by the School of Applied Science. They were so fervent about eating healthy and nutritious meals, without compromising the taste and presentation of the food, that they got involved in the Healthy Canteen Initiative at the RP canteens at E1 and W4 supported by the Health Promotion Board. The students have always been supportive of all food-related activities at RP, and we wish the pioneer Culinary IG committee and members all the very best as they go out into the world to pass on their enthusiasm and love for healthy delicious food!

Rexaz Cheerleading

@LOUD

Rexaz is RP’s cheerleading squad. It is made up of dynamic people who dare to dream and do. Although relatively young, this passionate team has already put up numerous outstanding performances in community projects, events and competitions. Physically and mentally strenuous, cheerleading is an art, a sport and the adrenalin rush of a lifetime!

@LOUD is RP’s student-run magazine. It has been in print since 2004. At @LOUD, we work as a team to achieve our goals. We celebrate diversity, innovativeness and creativity. During your times with Republic Polytechnic – be it as a student, a reader of @LOUD or as a writer/ editor for @LOUD – we hope that you had an enjoyable learning experience in school. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you success in all your endeavours. We hope that our magazine has provided you with some insights into life and, after you have graduated, we hope that @LOUD will increase your enthusiasm for writing. And someday, when you become somewhat introspective in nature, we hope that @LOUD will be in your thoughts when you put pen to paper.

Student Ambassadors It’s been another exciting year for the Student Ambassadors. They were involved in flagship RP events, among them the Flame Awards and the RP Open House. In particular, the students were proud to have the opportunity to receive President S R Nathan at RP in July 2008. It was a great honour for them to have the chance to get up close and personal with the President! Student Ambassadors do community outreach work as well and worked with Siglap Community Centre in Camperama and needy Malay students residing at Bukit Batok in Camp Heroes.

at Woodlands.

In 2004, the Troupe began with just two student members. It has since evolved into a group which is competent in the traditional performing arts of lion dance, dragon dance, Koi fish dance and the big flag balancing act. With the help of active and alumni members, the Troupe has won awards and medals in the annual National

Institutional Lion Dance Competition and is a regular competitor in the annual National Lion Dance Competition. It has also performed in major community events in the North West District and for establishments such as the Siloso Beach Resort. In 2008, it displayed the big flag balancing act in the Chingay procession

2009 started out with a big bang for the Troupe when it was invited to perform in the opening item of Chingay 2009 at City Hall. Throughout the parade route, we kept the RP flag flying in the gigantic flag display item, in front of thousands of people. All this would not have been possible without the dedication and hard work of Troupe members. It is the same determination and strength we hope our graduating members will apply in their future endeavours.

String Ensemble

2008 has been a fruitful and adventurous year for the String Ensemble, especially for the Year 3s. Most of them did not have any string instrument background when they joined the IG. Having to learn an instrument from scratch was a great challenge. However, through friendship and by motivating each 48

Young Aspirers - CIE BAZAAR Bazaar IG has been around for four years and is one of the IGs within the Young Aspirers Club with the longest history. The IG was set up to develop our students into entrepreneurs by presenting them with platforms where they have the chance to enhance their sales and marketing skills.

Student Life Activities

In 2008, the IG organised the Young Aspirers Club Pushcart Competition, “Vintage of the Eighties� pushcart sale and talks on franchising and starting a business.

Business Climate Business Climate IG organised its first MELT camp on October 30, 2008. Some highlights of the camp were the Track ID, Amazing Race and Night Walk, which went down very well with the campers. The organisers also had a chance to join in the fun. The group leaders in Business Climate IG not only guided their teams but also integrated themselves with their team members in the challenge. It was wonderful for the organisers to be told by the campers that they wanted another MELT camp!

In 2008, the International Business IG focused on local companies which had spread their wings overseas.

We came. We saw. We conquered. We didn’t win the Citi-Forex Challenge organised by Citibank, but all that Forex trading on a computer for more than an hour in Millennia Walk left us hungry enough to do full justice to the food at refreshments area. The competition pitted us against other polytechnic and university students.

Student Life Activities

Visits to F&N Foods and Times Printers, and seven lunchtime talks attended by a total of 1,430 students were organised. The IG also participated in the YA Pushcart Challenge, “Christmas Comes Early to RP”.

Other proud moments include our participation in the NUS National Economics and Financial Management Quiz 2008, in which we bravely took on teams from top local junior colleges, though many of us have no formal training in Economics or Financial Accounting. We also participated in the NTU Cash Flow 101Competition and the OCBCNTU Online Stock Challenge.

JIVE IG has grown from about 100 students to more than 800 students. Industry partners are eager to hook up with us for their events and projects. It is evidence of your efforts. Thanks for all your hard work. We are proud of you. We are confident that you will do well when you graduate and pursue your dreams. All the very best to all of you in your future endeavours!

Neoteric Marketers 2008 was a successful year for the new Neoteric Marketers IG that was established in January that year. The high point was the success of the Singapore Sling Award, which was organised in collaboration with True Heritage Brew (THB) for the launch of its ready-mixed, bottled version of the national cocktail.

The competition was thrown open to the campus and drew entries from 75 contestants in 3 different competition categories – marketing plan, design and interactive. The judges were impressed with the quality of work presented. The top 4 entries in each category have been invited to collaborate on the commercial launch of THB’s new product in 2009. Republic Polytechnic

The IG aims to be a platform for students with a passion for marketing to learn, apply and excel towards becoming a competent marketer, and acts as a focal point for youth marketing research. To enhance the learning of our members, marketing skills trainings and workshops, and external industrial talks were organised. |

Youth Entrepreneurship

The SUI! IG was launched in January 2007 as a live lab for RP students to gain first-hand experience in customer service in a retail environment, and to pick up holistic experience in the retail industry. In the last two years, the SUI! Shop achieved several key milestones – the development of the SUI! Xperience Training Course on retail management and customer service, and involvement in the first RP Captain Ball Challenge and the Mr/Ms SUI! Contest. There were also collaborations with the O2 Skin and Color Code (Singapore), the launch of two series of the Artestify Design Competition and the group’s first trip overseas to GuangZhou. The advisors of SUI! IG would like to thank all members and the management committee for the great times together. As SUI! IG was formed by students for students, none of what we did would have been possible without everyone playing his part.

Social Enterprise The Social Enterprise IG aims to create awareness and equip members with knowledge of social entrepreneurship while cultivating a sense of social mindedness through visits to social enterprises and employment centres for the less-privileged, talks and projects. One project was the Social Enterprise Bazaar at the Social Innovation Park’s PaTH Market in VivoCity, which involved more than 200 students. They worked with the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), the Singapore Children’s Society, the Society for the Physically Disabled and the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped on organising the event.

The Youth Entrepreneurship IG was formed with a vision of being the interest group of choice for entrepreneurship learning in RP. It was established based on the 3 “Es” – Engagement via Training, Experience via Exposure and Exploration via Research. Key milestones for the group in 2008 were the Entrepreneurship Education Program for secondary school students, an island-wide study of pushcart operations and the evaluation of a family business in Geylang Serai. We hope to see more students spearhead enterprise-related projects and entrepreneurship learning through various platforms in future. Thank you Youth Entrepreneurship IG students for walking with us on this wonderful journey.

Judo Ever since the formation of the IG in 2005, judo has been one of the most enriching competitive sports in the polytechnic. Judo is a combat sport which involves grappling moves such as throws, chokes and holds. Being able to survive the training and pulling off techniques which seem impossible in competition greatly boost our confidence, and encourage us to do better and soar to greater heights. Above all, we have formed unshakeable bonds among our members and have learnt to look out for one another. To put it metaphorically, we are like a wolf pack that works as one and takes care of every member. This great sense of belonging created through our blood, sweat and tears is certainly rarely found.

We, the members of the RP Judo IG, would like to express our greatest thanks to our ‘Sempais’ (seniors) for their invaluable guidance in making us into proud judokas. We sincerely wish you all the best and success in all future endeavours. RP SAA! RP SAA! RP SAA SAA SAAAA!

Starting as a recreational IG, the pursue to strive in the Runners’ Circle drove the IG to become a competitive one. In the recent years, Road Race IG’s runners, with the guidance of Coach Lim Kien Mau, have been successful in raising the IG’s profile internally in RP, as well as in the Runners’ Circle. Our milestones e.g. POL-ITE 08/09 Champions (Females) and 2nd Runners-Up (Male) are a few examples in which the IG has brought glory to RP. However, even though much has been achieved through the short span of 5 years, there’s still much to conquer. Nevertheless, just like our motto, “Runs End, Running Doesn’t”, there’ll be

In the National U20 tournaments, involving the polytechnics, junior colleges, ITEs, and international schools, RP is ranked among the top five schools. There is also an enthusiastic touch rugby group that has been very successful in various touch rugby competitions. There is fierce competition for positions in the team, at the same time there is strong support for players looking to develop their skills.

However, that which does not kill you only makes you stronger. We did not let the failures and wayward opinions of others affect us. Instead, it strengthened our bonds and we stood by each other through everything. What motivates the team to strive for improvement is a common love for the sport and desire to achieve success. Success only comes after numerous failures. You don’t just reach the peak of the mountain, but you have to climb to be at the top. Similarly for the RP Women soccer team, with perseverance, we will definitely reach where we aim to be in time to come.

Message from Director, School of Applied Science Dear Graduand, Ending is as important as starting. Not finishing is a common reason why many things turn out wrong. Be wary of those who over-promise and under-deliver. For the School, 2008 had been another good year of steady progress. Another Scientific Thinking Programme was successfully completed. Three well-received Technology Development seminars saw good industry participation and feedback. We are bringing our first offering of the Advanced Diploma in Pharmacy Practice to a close and are excited by the job prospects of the students enrolled. Our other advancement pathway, the Advanced Diploma in Biomedical Science, continues to attract good students and prove itself as a route for those who aspire to a good degree. This year, our first batch of Diploma in Pharmaceutical Science graduates will be joining the 600 or so graduates from our School. There are other high points. Two of our students were selected to represent Singapore at the Bayer Young Environmental Envoy (Germany) in 2008 and the 3rd Eco-Minds Asia Pacific Forum (Auckland and Rotorua, New Zealand) in 2009. Internally, the School’s Technology Development Centre for Complimentary and Alternative Medicine won the Best TDC award, while the School was recognised as the best service department in RP. One staff member won the National Environmental Agency Ecofriend Award, and one of our projects was presented at the 14th Youth Science Congress, alongside two from the National University of Singapore. You only have to look around the world and see that many things unravel because there is no finish. Luckily, in Science there is a methodology that ensures practitioners finish what they start, and learning from each other is a celebrated part of completing a task. Therein lies hope; for endings also mark new beginnings; by sharing, ideas are spawned and doors opened so that the cycle can start again. With the many challenges caused by a deteriorating economic environment, perhaps it is better to walk quietly, do what you say and finish what is started. Dr Terence Chong

See not your graduation as the end of your journey, but rather as the threshold from which you step forth into new discoveries and experiences. Remember the friendships that you have forged and that you will always be a part of your alma mater.

Well-Wishes from SAS Students To Scottz Lip, you have been like a father figure in rDNA and Genetics class! The most impactful thing you left was your “Logical Approach”. 1) Have a motivation in life and 2) Focus on getting effective solutions for the problem at hand.

Thank you to all the Facis who have taught me. And A VERY BIG Thank You to my beloved friends and classmates especially the 2 nonsensical girls Nurul Ain Bte Abdul Rahim and Nurul Fatin Bte Laili!

To Jeremy Wu, a million pleasures and treasures for having you as my facilitator. You reminded me that even when I fall into the deepest hole, I just need to keep my spirits up and, eventually; I’ll fly up and out!

NUR HIDAYAH BTE ABDUL JALIL (DPHM)

Hey high end, toppest TOP peeps (Timothy Huang, Wong Jeh Ni & Sharyfah Nur Fitriya)! Thanks truckloads for all the stupendous times. God knows how dead my life would be w/o you guys! =P MUHAMMAD SHAHAMIR BIN SAHARUDDIN (DBMS) First of all, thanks to my IG fellow teammates, especially my chic family. I had a wonderful time when we were together. Next, I have to thank my classmate, Sneha, for giving me notes to study for UT. And of course some peers from E35N yr2, W56M yr3. We had a wonderful BBQ at the East Coast Park. Lastly, thanks to my mentor Dawn Ong! CHONG MEI YING, ANGELA (DBIO) To my ‘animals’! It’s YOU people who made my days at RP! Never gonna forget the times we spent, the secrets we shared, the everyday favourite seat we went to, the sleepover nights we had and plenty more...*hugs* JAIME CHUA HUI CHING (DPHM) Special thanks to Republic Rhapsody for the wonderful time that we had while singing for performances and practicing. Thank you for the support as I was leading the team. TAN YIWEI JORDAN (DBMS)

Hi Aruna, we are definitely going to miss you and your lessons a lot. You are a very sweet person who has made a big impression on us. We totally enjoyed the “Doctor -ish “ feeling!!!... :) Hi Dr. Ventris, thank you for being such a fantastic facilitator. You made all the 16 weeks of lessons very enjoyable and memorable for us. J P DHEPHEKKA (DBMS) & GURVEEN KAUR SANDHU (DBMS) W56G rocks! Would like to thank this class for bringing joy and excitement to everyone. Not forgetting the captain ball tournament!! Thanks to our captain and vice-captain Jaime and Zhiping for guiding the ‘Orang Asli’ to a 3rd place! GRACE MUI SHU HUI (DBMS) & YEO JUN JIE (DBMS) Thanks to a lot of FACI - Jimmy, Constance Goh, Pearly Ng, Lee Wan See, Scottz, Pui Shan - and all the other faci who have taught me. Learnt a lot from you guys. Want to thank all my FRIENDS too! ARIFIN (DBMS) Team African Violet would like to use this opportunity to express our gratitude to our PI, Wan She. She’s the main reason G301/G302 was so fun and meaningful. She cared for how our project progressed, met with us when we asked, and of course, encouraged us to believe something would grow. And indeed, we are now growing lots of African violet plantlets! Jovina, Diana, Qianwen, Meiyun & Karen

Message from Deputy Director, School of Engineering Dear Graduand, Victory belongs to the most persevering - Napoleon Let me congratulate you on completing this portion of your learning journey. The time spent over the past three years in RP’s School of Engineering has prepared you to be responsible, rational and resourceful individuals who can contribute to the engineering field and society. Your cohort has achieved PS’s first medal in the World Skills Singapore 08 Competition in the area of Telecommunication Distribution Technology. In that of Robotics, your cohort has done amazingly well by winning the top three prizes in the Singapore Robotics Games 09. These milestones would not have been attained without your passion, determination and hard work. I give you all the credit for bringing the School of Engineering to greater heights! After graduation, do continue to have faith in your own capabilities and be an enthusiastic learner in the pursuit of your goals. Please remember to participate in our alumni activities and share your learning experience with your juniors. Success is a journey, not a destination. This marks the beginning of a new chapter in your life. Always have the “CAN Spirit – Confident, Adaptable and Never give up spirit!”, and success will accompany you along your life’s journey. Dr Wang Jianguo

Message from Director, School of Hospitality Dear Graduand, Congratulations on your graduation. You are now in possession of the first Diploma in Integrated Events Management awarded by a local polytechnic. The launch of the two new Integrated Resorts, the development of Singapore’s first large-scale land and sea sports facility at the Sports Hub, the hosting of mega events such as the F1 race and the upcoming Youth Olympics in 2010 are transforming the tourism landscape of Singapore. Your diploma provides you a passport to capitalise on the growing demand of the meeting, incentive, convention and exhibition market in Singapore and the region. It also provides you with a strong foundation for acquiring new expertise to make an impact in the industry. The academic rigour that you have undergone under RP’s unique Problem-Based Learning approach will have transformed you into active thinkers with inquisitive minds, giving you an extra edge in the increasingly competitive global environment. Make full use of this process in whatever you do. Question and seek better ways in any given situation. The road to success is through well thought out solutions, hard work and perseverance; these are three key attributes that will contribute to your success and give you that competitive edge. Finally, be confident of your work, and always strive for excellence and greater heights, so you can continually upgrade and improve yourself. I wish you all the best on this your graduation day and look forward to successes in your future. Mr Tan Huan Peow

School of Hospitality Well-Wishes from SOH Staff

DIEM Inaugural Overseas Service-Learning Trip

Three years is now time goodbye. It journey and been part of

When we came back from Cambodia, we realised how fortunate we are to be able to study and live in Singapore. Thanks to RP for the eye-opening experience in Cambodia! Throughout the course of the trip, the 20 of us have formed friendships and bonds that will last even after graduation which I will never forget!

have come and gone and it to bid all of you a bittersweet was a long and challenging I am indeed honored to have your education here in RP.

– Caryn Lim

Though you have graduated, I hope you will remember that life is a learning journey and your diploma is just the first big step. Never stop learning and continue to work hard, winning what you want in life and achieving the things that you hope for. On behalf of all the DIEM facilitators and everyone at the School of Hospitality, our heartfelt congratulations on your graduation. You have worked hard for your diploma and done us proud. The best of luck as you prepare to embark on the next leg of your journey outside of RP, and I hope you will continue to do RP proud. Stephanie Tan Programme Chair Diploma in Integrated Events Management

Having to handle an overseas project like this is not easy. We are working in a foreign country and there are many challenges faced by the team. Nevertheless, it was an enriching experience holding an event in Cambodia. I am very glad that we are given such a great opportunity to embark on this project. I definitely encourage more of such trips in future for the students of SOH. – Alice Hong

OVERSEAS ATTACHMENT - BEIJING OLYMPICS The opportunity of an attachment in China came as a shock. It was a once in a life-time opportunity, and I was honored to be selected for it. It was a six-week attachment with Raffles Beijing Hotel, during the Beijing Olympics 2008. Raffles Beijing Hotel was one of the Olympic Family Hotels, which played host to the International Olympic Committee(IOC). Being attached to the main hotel restaurant, East 33, I experience serving and interacting with the IOC members. I was also very fortunate to be able to attend the Olympic Games. It was the Gymnastics Finals at the Beijing National Indoor Stadium, it was a mind-blowing experience to hear and feel everyone cheering on. Living and working in Beijing was an eye opener, the six-weeks allowed me to immerse myself in the chinese culture and explore the developing Beijing. – Addison Lee

Message from Director, School of Information and Communications Technology Dear Graduand, In April 2009, our fourth batch of students graduates from our School. Just seven years ago, SIT was the newest IT school among the polytechnics. Today, we are still the youngest, but the largest, with an intake of more than 1,000 students for the academic year 2009/10. 2008 saw our first batch of graduates with a Diploma in Business Applications. They had extensive training in vertical industry processes and application systems, and landed jobs quickly in reputable companies, including Singapore Power and the hospitals. Our SIT diploma holders are doing as well in the three local universities. Of special note is that more than 10 per cent of the places for the Bachelor of Information Systems Management course at Singapore Management University were given to our School’s graduates. This year, we have our first Diploma in IT Service Management graduates. In spite of the trying economic climate, these diploma holders are in high demand. Several secured jobs before graduating. Congratulations! The School has also rolled out its Monash University Advanced Pathway programme. This takes our graduates directly into the final year of the Bachelor of Information Technology Systems course at the Australian university. Two 2009 graduates have already started on it in Melbourne. Finally, after months of planning, our Diploma in Business Computing has been re-introduced as the Diploma in Business Information Systems. This will focus on how information systems are used in areas like Human Resources, Finance & Accounting and Sales & Marketing. It has been an eventful academic year, with the School running competitions, seminars, workshops and making changes to improve our students’ education and experience in the polytechnic. With each successive year, we are seeing the fruits of our investment in top-quality staff, curriculum development and laboratory resources. All this leads to graduates who are even more equipped to succeed in industry and in further education. My best wishes to all SIT 2009 graduates! Mr Mervin Beng Republic Polytechnic

Within the DBA modules’ curriculum, students are given hands-on practice in ERP, banking, healthcare as well as point-of-sales applications. The objective of such sessions is to allow students to appreciate how IT supports the manufacturing & logistics, healthcare, finance, hospitality and retail industries.

Within the DIT modules’ curriculum, students are given opportunities to opt for the mainframe computing module. Within the module students will develop basic operational and administrative competencies on the mainframe systems and how mainframes co-exist with other computing environments such as Windows and Linux.

With the advent of wireless technology, there is an increasing trend of companies and people using wireless technology. The uses of such technology ranges from ensuring mobile internet connectivity to enabling data, voice, digital and multimedia content accessibility at any place, anytime, anywhere. As the technology takes off, there is an increasing demand for networking and wireless knowledge. In order to ensure that the market demands for networking and wireless technologies are met, students are equipped with networking and wireless knowledge in a practical

Over the course of two semesters, the year 3 students will have to hone their IT skills and develop an IT application or system using a systematic methodology based on given specifications and requirements for their Final Year Projects (FYPs). The projects are submitted at the end of each semester and presented to a group of evaluators who will judge the merit of their work. Each individual FYP allows students to demonstrate their skills, knowledge gained in the first two years at RP.

Message from Director, School of Sports, Health and Leisure Dear Graduand, There is a time and tide in the affairs of men, which taken at its crest, leads to success. – Julius Caesar (Shakespeare) Congratulations on taking the bold step to be the pioneering graduates of the Sports and Exercise Science, and the Sports and Leisure Management diploma programmes. This is an opportune time in Singapore’s history to pursue such qualifications as the country makes its mark on the global sporting map, through hosting the Asian Youth Games this year, the inaugural Youth Olympic Games in 2010, and its plans to be a sports hub. Your three years in RP’s School of Sports, Health and Leisure have prepared you to be competent and industry-ready professionals. Your investment of time and effort in growing personal capability and in sustaining your commitment to high-quality work, coupled with a strong work ethic, will empower you to enable Singapore to fulfil its aspirations to be a sporting nation with a vibrant sports industry. I have every confidence that you’ll be equal to this task, and innovative in your approach. However, please remember to remain engaged with RP through the Graduate Chapter, as many opportunities for professional and personal growth, and chances to contribute to your alumni, will be made known through this channel. Let us be part of your life’s journey through our suite of continuing education programmes, research and development capabilities, career services, industry networks and student activities. I have three wishes for you: That you keep to the highest universal standards of integrity –so you may acquit yourself professionally; that you stay humble – so you’re always a willing learner and seeker of new competencies and knowledge; and that you love dearly – so you find joy, purpose and meaning in life in all that you do and in the years ahead. Best wishes to you. Dr Michael Koh Republic Polytechnic

School of Sports, Health and Leisure Well-Wishes from SHL Staff It’s been a pleasure to be part of a team responsible for the first batch of DSLM graduates from RP, and the time spent together will certainly be cherished! While we wish our graduates the very best in their future endeavours, we also hope they will continue engaging in life from different perspectives, and that they use their vibrancy to serve the community and industry with 101%! May our graduating students serve as ambassadors for the programme and also an inspiration for youth aspiring to be a part of the local and regional sporting scenes.

The SHL embarked on producing the first graduates whose job is to fulfil the needs, wishes and goals of the sports and leisure industry. I am happy to note this has resulted in a flurry of partnerships, networking and projects with industry, as well as recognition from universities for the rigour in our curriculum. I hope our graduates can apply their newly-acquired knowledge, confidence and problem-solving skills to the world stage. That they pursue more knowledge to strengthen the quality of service to the industry. Like true adventurers, be bold. Take the path less travelled, go where no one has gone. What you have learnt will come in useful in negotiating the challenging and uncertain trails ahead. This is what RP has prepared you for. Abdul Kahlid, Programme Chair, Diploma in Outdoor & Adventure Learning Assistant Director, Administration Life is a journey and we will make many stops along the way. RP’s SHL was one. Treasure the encounters as these are all pieces of the jigsaw puzzle of life. We will be able to piece them together later in life, to get a better picture of ourselves. Some of us will have to make many stops to know ourselves better, but some of us will need fewer stops to realise our strengths and weaknesses. However, it is not the number of stops which matters BUT how we spend our time meaningfully at these stops. So spend your time well at the next stop in your life which could be a university, a workplace or a unit in the armed forces during National Service. Best wishes for your journey in life!

School of Sports, Health and Leisure Students’ Write Ups An account of my first day in RP

School’s Splash!

I woke up on the morning of 17th April 2006 feeling sleepy but I was excited at the same time because it was my first day in RP. I was very glad I was given the freedom to choose what to wear instead of those silly looking uniforms. Upon reaching campus, I was greeted by its vibrant greenery. The building architecture was amazing and overwhelming. I quickly composed myself and made my way to The Agora. From there, I made my way to my classroom. I distinctively remember my class, W34F and my very first lesson in RP was Computing and Mathematical Methods I. The seating arrangement in the classroom was not arranged in a conventional classroom manner. With apprehension, I wonder if I can get along with my new classmates. Fortunately the facilitator arranged our seating according to our designated teams. As I wasn’t aware my classmates came from the different schools, I was puzzled that most didn’t look sporty. Moreover, I was unsure how to start the conversation and that felt really odd.

used creative methods such as skits, quizzes and powerpoint presentations. I remembered vividly the class was filled with discussion and laughter. Life in RP has shaped me into an individual that is responsible for my own learning and also, a team player. The facilitators in SHL have imparted me with valuable knowledge that goes beyond textbook. They shared their experiences and thus open up my mind to view issues from different perspectives. Learning in RP is not only limited to the classroom. As a floorball player, I learnt valuable lessons through my interactions between my coach and team mates. I will never forget the wonderful times I have in RP and believe that RP’s SHL is the indeed right choice for me. Muhammad Yusoff Bin Abdul Gulam Diploma in Sports & Exercise Sciences

It is with fond memories and gratitude that I look back upon the very fun and fruitful three years here.

What I enjoyed most was the last meeting where the teams were required to present their findings, ideas and solutions and we

The beginning was painful as I was completely out of my comfort zone. Both the non-traditional problem-based learning and the English language were totally foreign to me. It was a struggle to quickly read and understand the daily class material and an even greater challenge to be understood in English. However, as I adapted to the learning environment – with much help from classmates and facilitators– I started to appreciate the way I was developing to be an innovative problem solver with entrepreneurial skills.

Shortly after, the facilitator showed the problem statement for the day and tasked all the teams to do a “Problem Definition Template”. I then I realised to my horror, I was unable to enter LEO. Thankfully, my new team mates asked if I logged into the VPN and that broke the ice with my own team.

Being in RP is not only about education, it was also about finding my identity in a foreign land. I grew up in China and came to Singapore as an athlete and to me, being a Singaporean had no context outside of donning the national colours and winning competitions. When in RP, I got to experience the daily life of a typical youth in Singapore. Suddenly, I was caught in the peak hour traffic, with people who were just like me - rushing to school and work. For the first time in my life, I was able to interact with so many different people every single day. Very soon, I was hanging out at heartland malls and picking up the local colloquial. The simple fact that people today are surprised when I say where I am from is testament of how everyone here has embraced me as part of the family. RP also gave me many opportunities to learn and broaden my horizons and more importantly build my confidence. I was very fortunate to go to the Korat SEA Games as an official and the Beijing Olympics as an intern. RP made me realise that with sheer hard work, determination and perseverance, nothing is impossible. I learnt that education is a process and not a destination. Now that I am about to embark on a new chapter of my life, I wish to thank my facilitators, mentors and classmates for walking this wonderful journey with me and giving me the best three years of my life. The spirit of adventure and learning shall be with me as I step out boldly into the future. Zhao Jing Diploma in Sports & Leisure Management

Message from Director, School of Technology for the Arts This year marks another memorable milestone for the School. The pioneering students who pursued the Diploma in Sonic Arts and the Diploma in Technology and Arts Management are graduating this year, along with the second batch of graduates who read for the Diploma in New Media. On behalf of the faculty and staff of the School of Technology for the Arts, I congratulate all of you for your achievement. I wish to cite in particular those students who completed their studies with outstanding marks and are therefore graduating with distinction; those who represented the School in various competitions and brought home well-deserved awards and scholarships; those who gave of themselves to others by way of community service. And those, who, by their talent and creativity, produced many imaginative and inspiring projects in visual art and design, musical arts and technical theatre, which found their way into local and overseas exhibitions and festivals. The School is very proud of you. Many of you will enter the working world to apply the creative and technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt and honed through Problem-Based Learning in RP. Some of you will pursue degrees in local and overseas universities. Many of the young men among you will be called for National Service. Whichever path you choose to take, rest assured that you carry with you the hopes and wishes of your mentors for great success and good fortune. Godspeed! Dr Victor T. Valbuena

School of Technology for The Arts Well-Wishes from STA Staff As the first DTA graduating cohort, you are pioneers, the ones who have set the benchmarks for other DTA students to follow. We are proud of your achievements as students. Now, you will also be setting the milestones and benchmarks in the industry when you do your part for the arts in Singapore. The growth in number of arts companies, arts venues and integrated resorts means opportunities abound for you, regardless of whether your interest lies in technical theatre, design or arts management. The world is there for you to conquer, the future is bright. Remember that in the arts the winning ingredients are passion, inspiration, integrity, perseverance. Hold these values close to your heart and you will succeed! Wishing you all the best in your future endeavours and may all your dreams come true.

As you recall the first time you stepped into the RP campus, different memories will come to mind. Whatever your journey may have been, I hope you will continue striding along. Not just towards goals, but towards dreams. In today’s working environment, much is demanded of you to simply complete tasks and to deliver what is asked of you. But wherever you may go, as you leave, remember why you were here. You are not simply given a qualification, you are now armed with possibilities, promise and the passion to tie your aspirations to stars. Whatever you may take with you as a DNM student, you have the most powerful gift of all-Imagination. And now, let the real PBL begin.” Mark D’Oliveira Programme Chair for Diploma in New Media From multi-coloured rainbows to musical notes from a piano, from starlight from distant nebulae to the tiniest sub-atomic particles which make up every leaf and stone, everything is in a constant state of motion and vibration. With three years of training at Republic Polytechnic behind you, some of you may further your academic training in other tertiary institutions, some may don camouflage uniforms and protect our nation, some may join the industry as musicians and sonic artists, and others may enter totally unchartered waters. Whatever it may be, wherever you are, keep an open mind. Maintain that spirit of inquiry honed by problem-based learning. May you find your natural vibration and contribute your voice not only as a Singaporean but as a citizen of the world. Luke Chen Programme Chair for Diploma in Sonic Arts Republic Polytechnic

School of Technology for The Arts STA Highlights Study Trip to Melbourne

School’s Splash!

It was a fulfilling visit during which students had the opportunity to learn about the arts scene in Melbourne, including the functioning and operations of key arts venues, among them the Victorian Arts Centre and Melbourne Museum. The trip helped all of them to appreciate the arts and the management of arts facilities, as well as provided inspiration towards their artistic practice. Samantha Bounaparte Academic Staff STA

My Unconventional Route Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail – Ralph Waldo Emerson I was eligible for a junior college, but decided to enrol in a local polytechnic.

Overseas service-learning experiences during my second and third years have taught me there’s so much more to life and people than just what is on the surface, and how education in itself should not be taken for granted. Being a part of the Netball Interest Group has allowed me to grow as a player and build my character. The level of play at the IVP is phenomenal. The school for geeks, as my School is often called, has provided me with ample chances and opportunities to develop my leadership skills through the annual science camps for secondary school students as well as post-diploma opportunities, such as interaction with members of Monash University. Juggling my studies, staying on top of my game and finding enough time for friends and family were divided by extremely fine lines, many a time there were overlaps during crucial moments. Overcoming these obstacles, I find myself ready to take on new challenges as I prepare for entry into university.

Yearbook 2009 187

Outstanding Graduates

Through my three years in RP, I’ve grown and matured from a spoon-fed secondary school student into an independent, self-directed learner. RP is where I’ve gained some of my most treasured and memorable experiences.


It’s the Experience that Counts

Outstanding Graduates

RP’s “self-drive” method of learning not only helps students be more independent but also removes the limit on how much they can discover and learn. I enjoyed it very much. At the start though, the system seemed a bit rigid. But what I discovered it was more than a rigid system. I’ve benefitted in terms of knowledge and the process of sharing the information I have through discussions, and now appreciate that learning can take place in an interactive manner. I’ve learnt not to simply accept facts, but also to challenge them. Sometimes it’s not just asking the question, but also to question the speaker on what he or she is saying. This brings learning to a higher level. RP’s system not only helps someone to be able to do well academically but also enables him to have sufficient time for other activities. My time was well spent. I was vice-president in the Pharmaceutica IG and learnt how to set up a shop, deal with merchandising and more, which I believe can never be achieved in the classroom. It’s the experience that counts! Wang Yong Tai Raymond School of Applied Science Diploma in Pharmaceutical Sciences

I’ve Learnt to Fly! My cohort of 66 will be the first DAA batch graduating from RP. Being pioneers, we were part of a lot of experiments to see how we adapted to the course, and they were all successful.

It was easy for me to apply what I knew in the various modules of my course, and I learnt more of the non-flying aspects of aviation, and about aircraft maintenance engineering. We give too little attention to aircraft maintenance engineers, the ones who really make planes fly. My efforts to put together tutorials of various navigation systems through flight simulation software have been appreciated by many. It was a great pleasure for me to create the learning aids to help other students visualise possible scenarios in an aircraft. I usually hang out at the airport with my best friends to take pictures of aircraft in action and we enjoy the operations at the airport terminals, where we hope to work. My facilitators have given excellent guidance, while the PBL method has given me a die-hard attitude in all aspects of life. Kaushik Amit Thakare School of Engineering Diploma in Aerospace Avionics

Yearbook 2009 189

Outstanding Graduates

I’ve been very interested in aircraft and wanted to learn how planes fly since I was five. My dad bought me a flight simulator game and a joystick. The software taught the basics of flying. It spurred me to read books and magazines to learn more about aviation.


Experience the Difference

RP may differ from other polytechnics as its uses the Problem-Based Learning System, but the uniqueness of this allowed me to maximise my learning.

Outstanding Graduates

It gave me the freedom to explore RP’s limitless resources, and the flexibility to start work anytime, anywhere. It’s disciplined me in terms of time management and organisational skills. Having to make a presentation every day helped me develop communication, leadership and teamwork skills, which are surely useful in the workplace. I also had the chance to help others through Service Learning trips. I’d never thought of doing industrial and operations management before I joined RP, but now I intend to further my studies in this. I can only say that “If you don’t try, you’ll never know”.

My First Day in RP

I woke up on April 17, excited and glad I could choose what to wear instead of a silly-looking uniform. At the campus, I was greeted by vibrant greenery and overwhelmed by the buildings’ architecture.

I remember vividly that the class was filled with discussion and laughter when we made our presentations at day’s end. What I’ve learnt goes beyond textbooks. I’ll never forget the wonderful times.

Outstanding Graduates

My first lesson was Computing and Mathematical Methods I. I wondered if I would get along with my new classmates. I was unsure how to start a conversation with them, but the ice was broken when I couldn’t get into LEO and they showed me how.


The Best Three Years of My Life I look back on three very fun and fruitful years here. The beginning was painful. Both the non-traditional Problem-Based Learning system and the English language were totally foreign to me.

Outstanding Graduates

It was a struggle to quickly read and understand the daily class material and an even greater challenge to be understood in English. However, as I adapted to the learning environment – with much help from classmates and facilitators – I started to appreciate the way I was developing into an innovative problem solver with entrepreneurial skills. Being in RP was not only about education, it was also about finding my identity in a foreign land. I grew up in China and came to Singapore as an athlete. To me, being a Singaporean had no context outside of donning the national colours and winning competitions. In RP, I got to experience the daily life of a typical youth in Singapore. Suddenly, I was caught in the peak hour traffic, with people who were just like me, rushing to school and work. For the first time in my life, I was able to interact with so many different people every single day. Very soon, I was hanging out at heartland malls and picking up the local colloquialisms. The simple fact that people today are surprised when I reveal where I’m from is testament of how everyone here has embraced me as part of the family. RP also gave me many opportunities to learn and broaden my horizons, and more importantly, build my confidence. I was very fortunate to go to the Korat SEA Games as an official and the Beijing Olympics as an intern. RP made me realise that with sheer hard work, determination and perseverance, nothing is impossible. I learnt that education is a process and not a destination. Now that I’m about to embark on a new chapter of my life, I wish to thank my facilitators, mentors and classmates for walking this wonderful journey with me and giving me the best three years of my life. The spirit of adventure and learning shall be with me as I step out boldly into the future. Zhao Jing School of Sports, Health and Leisure Diploma in Sports and Leisure Management 192

A Bamboo Tree Inspired Me My learning journey in RP has been challenging yet enriching. The start wasn’t easy as I had to adapt to an approach where knowledge needed to be self-acquired and learning was not confined to information in textbooks. Facilitators were there to provide guidance. I undertook to research and understand the day’s problem. When in doubt, I turned to facilitators or classmates. When facing difficulties in understanding a problem, I applied perseverance and determination.

One setback was when the effort I put in reaped no results. It became discouraging to continue. In such instances, I thought of a video on the Chinese Bamboo Tree which my Operating Systems module facilitator shared with me. It is about growing a bamboo tree that sprouted only after four years. It inspired me to be persistent, to make things happen. Throughout my journey, I’ve acquired knowledge which is not confined to textbooks, but useful skills, such as presentation, working cohesively in a group and resolving difficulties with composure and confidence. I realise that through setbacks, I learnt to improvise and be flexible when it came to problem-solving. It helped me be creative, dare to be different and a better thinker. I learnt there’re always different approaches to find a solution. I’d like to share with my RP friends the quote, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. It’s given me the courage to take the first step when I’m in doubt. Cheong Bao Ling School of Information and Communications Technology Diploma in Business Applications

Outstanding Graduates

To sustain my motivation, I set targets for my future, my dreams, and came up with strategies as to how I’d work towards realising them. It allowed me to organize my work better and put aside distractions.


You’ll Never Walk Alone

Outstanding Graduates

I took a step of faith and decided to embrace Problem-Based Learning with an open mind, and haven’t looked back since. I like the challenge of having a problem to solve on a daily basis and this kept me going even when I was tired. Although I was enrolled in the Information Technology Service Management Diploma programme, RP did not rush to train me in my specialisation. Instead, it chose to first nurture me into a better learner armed with an expansive knowledge. In my latter years, I applied what I’d learnt in Year One to solve IT related problems. Learning wasn’t limited to the classroom. In the Professional Profiling Module, we got a feel of what our industry is like by interviewing prominent players in the sector; in the Creative Engagement Modules, we attended many interesting seminars and workshops by experts We are now polished diamonds, ready to face the next phases of life. Liverpool Football Club’s slogan, “You’ll never walk alone” could well describe RP students’ experiences in RP. Throughout my three years, I’ve been mentored by DSM programme chairperson Goh Chin Hong, who’s made the journey a wellpadded one. Lam Zhao Yang School of Information and Communications Technology Diploma in IT Service Managment

My Enriching, Eye-Opening Experience In 2006, I came into RP without knowing much about Problem-Based Learning. However, as the first few weeks of school went by, I slowly adapted to the poly’s different approach in teaching. It has benefited me greatly.

RP provided me the opportunity to visit Cambodia’s Siem Reap for my Final Year Project. It was enriching, eye-opening and something I’ll never forget. The trip gave me insights into the world outside Singapore, experiences in organising events for the less unfortunate, and building lasting friendships with my peers and tour leaders. Without the guidance of our facilitators, I wouldn’t have come this far. They made learning exciting for us, pushed us to think and explore practical and reallife issues. And they have groomed me to learn to present with confidence, to think on my feet and, most importantly, to always have an inquisitive mind. It’s an honour to be one of the first batches of graduates from RP’s School of Hospitality. Caryn Lim School of Hospitality Diploma in Integrated Events Management

Outstanding Graduates

I’ve become an independent learner instead of being spoon-fed with answers. I’ve also learnt what it takes to be a good leader and a good team player through the daily presentations made in a team for the past three years.


New Perspective to Life

Outstanding Graduates

My experiences at RP have presented me with a new perspective to life. I’ve gone from an awkward 17-year-old with no clear vision or idea about his future to a proud Diploma in Integrated Events Management graduate, knowing exactly what he wants. I’m grateful for the people and opportunities in RP for what I am today. I’ve had facilitators who guided me, classmates who’ve helped in the learning process, and most importantly, friends who’ve always been there to support me when I needed them. I’m appreciative for the many wonderful opportunities to excel and prove myself, from being awarded the STB Scholarship to working alongside the organisers of Global Entrepolis Singapore in my industrial engagement programme. These experiences helped shape my events knowledge and skills, and opened up opportunities outside RP. Dennis Liu School of Hospitality Diploma in Integrated Events Management

The Only Limit is Your Imagination

I joined the School of Technology for the Arts to capture the world’s imagination with my creativity. Through the years, I’ve explored Events Management, Stage Design, Front-of-House and Backstage Management. I’ve also picked up life skills, including initiative and self-discipline, through the Problem Based Learning System.

My facilitators have been supportive, especially in providing opportunities to work with industry professionals. I’ve worked with the Esplanade on many occasions, interned with the renowned Reel Loco Productions in Disney productions and managed events with other arts industry players. They deserve the credit for the expansion of my repertoire of artistic skills and management experience, and for my getting the National Arts Council Georgette Chen Arts Scholarship 2009.

Outstanding Graduates

My experience in RP has not been awe-inspiring but definitely close to exciting. I was on my school’s first learning trip to Melbourne, where I experienced how “Melbourne is living the Arts every day”.


I Created a CD for the President

Outstanding Graduates

When I left secondary school, I was quite sure I wanted to venture into the music industry. So I applied for a Diploma in Sonic Arts at the School of Technology for the Arts, as a first step in developing my passion and interest for a career. When I entered the programme, I was in awe of how much equipment the school had; better still, it was all so new! I had many chances to get hands-on training on the equipment, which I could only dream of owning. I’ve learnt many things in the programme, even how to improvise and experiment with music. The courses have really opened my eyes to sound design, sound reinforcement, and how to properly mix and engineer studio recordings; all this while working with real bands and talents! Most of my facilitators are very experienced musicians and industry professionals, so we often connect on a deeper level. We share experiences and wisdom, which is something that one cannot learn from a text book. Being in this programme has also opened many doors for me. One standout experience was having the honour to record selected music compositions from my Final Year Project in a professional studio, creating a CD and giving it to President SR Nathan as a gift from RP!
