• The school colours are light blue, white, black, and red. • White : Purity, Sincerity and Honesty

• Each colour symbolises certain attributes in a person.

Significance of The School Colours and Crest

• Black : Perseverance and Steadfastness

• Light Blue : Liveliness and Magnanimity • Red : Aspirations, Warmth and Unity

At the centre of the crest is a flower which is made up of many petals encircling a cog-wheel. The flower represents the scholastic achievements while the cog-wheel signifies the nation’s progress and development. As education is the inculcation of all the above attributes, it is hoped that with these qualities, a Newtowner will forge a better future for himself and contribute to the nation’s progress and achievements.

#04-301 Singapore 680766 Besides helping to make real and concrete what has been learnt in schools, Learning Journeys will broaden the mental horizons of pupils and contribute to their total development. Every pupil goes on a Learning Journey at least once a year.

The school has since sent pupils and staff to different countries such as Australia, China, Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

Between 1967 and 1980, pupils from New Town Secondary School participated in the ‘Week of Service’ project annually. During the Week of Service, pupils were encouraged to work with their hands and do jobs such as cleaning and sweeping in homes and pruning of shrubs in private gardens for a token sum. The funds raised from this programme were given to charities and the school’s development fund. This was an act of service for country, for school and for people.

The following are some Learning Journeys organised for the pupils of each level presently: Secondary One: Mathematics and National Education Trail

A notable school twinning programme New Town Secondary School has is with Bencharamachuthit School from Thailand. As part of the SingaporeThailand Enhancement Programme (STEP), New Towners and Thai pupils from Bencharamachuthit School are given the chance to visit each other’s country on an educational and cultural exchange.

Staff and pupils working together to raise funds for charities.

Secondary Two: Overseas Trip to Malaysia

In 2009, the two schools also started the Teachers’ Work Attachment Programme. Staff from the two schools are given the opportunity to be attached to each other’s school for two weeks, sharing expertise and immersing in the culture of their counterpart’s country.

The Week of Service was a very meaningful project as it was a commitment taken by the school to inculcate a sense of belonging to Singapore and develop community spirit amongst the students in our country’s infant years. What the boys and girls displayed towards their project demonstrated civicmindedness as well as a dedication to the business of simply working hard to achieve a goal. The generous public response to the pupils showed that Singaporeans were concerned about and committed to the needs of the community.

Learning Journeys Learning Journeys are an integral part of the character development and instructional programmes in New Town Secondary School where teachers and pupils go on trips and camps out of school together to extend and enrich the educational experience.

Mr Inche A. Rahim Ishak, the then Minister of State for Education, was the Guest of Honour for the school’s opening ceremony of its first Week of Service in 1967. In his message for the school, he mentioned “the week long programme you have drawn up for Week of Service 1967 will highlight your determination to make the (national) pledge meaningful and in several ways during the week. You will, during the week, combined your individual effort as ‘one united people’ to bring joy to the less fortunate than yourselves.”

Excellence in Attittude Excellence in Life

We passed the rst night in a train which hardly felt like one as all the carriages looked like hotel rooms! Perhaps the most memorable part of the trip was the various treks that we undertook along the way. On our rst morning, we reached a village called Sapa which was located high up in the mountains. Although it was cold, we enjoyed it as the weather in Singapore is always so very hot! We changed into comfortable shorts and Tshirts for our treks, trudging along with our trusty backpacks lled with water-bottles to keep us wellhydrated. If anyone of us had thought the treks were going to be boring, we were proven wrong when we stepped into muddy or wet terrain and had to hike up steep slopes from one village to another. A careless slip would have meant a bad fall, and it was really good class bonding that we experienced

Dear parents,

Welcome New Teachers 2010

In a matter of a few weeks, we will be reaching the end of another academic year. I would like to take this opportunity to first thank all our stakeholders in your continual support towards the school. The school has seen quite a lot of changes this year and I would like to use this platform as a means of updating you on what is happening. From mid last year, the school engaged its staff and pupils in a transitional process of relooking at our mission, vision and values. This was essential in keeping up with the educational system and also a conscious effort on our part to always reflect on our goals and ambition for the future. We are proud to acknowledge that our new vision- Excellence in Attitude, Excellence in Life was crafted as a result of a brainstorming session from one of our classes in Primary 4. Our mission statement was refined and we are committed to developing a confident person, an active contributor, a concerned citizen and a conscientious learner. Some parents were also invited to join the staff in revisiting our core values. This was a deliberate inclusion because we wanted our parents to be our partners in the education of their children. From the initial 8 core values, we streamlined them to 4, resulting in the acronym RISE. R – Respect ( Respect for people and environment) I – Integrity ( Doing the right thing and loyalty to class, school, family and country) S – Self-Discipline ( Being resilient, self-directed and practising self-control) E – Excellence ( Excellence in attitude, excellence in life)

We hope that with the introduction of these new mission, vision and values, we promote a mindset of excellence in our children. The teachers will be using these aggressively in their everyday interactions with your child. I hope to appeal to parents to complement us in our efforts and to also help us inculcate the same values and beliefs at home.

Our class 2A was privileged to go on a learning journey to Vietnam from the second to the seventh of June. We landed in Hanoi after a short ight, quite uncertain of what to expect in this country largely unknown to most of us.

Vietnam Trip, 02/06/10 - 07/06/10

It is our aim to provide a holistic education for your child, one that balances academic achievement with that of Co-Curriculum Activities. We strongly encourage our pupils to take part in a CCA so that they can develop themselves aesthetically and physically as well. The school also started on a storytelling workshop this year for all Primary 3 to Primary 5 pupils. This is the direction the English Department will be focusing on from this year onwards. Identified as the Niche of Excellence in Spoken English, the department believes that storytelling will be one of the most effective ways to perfect the speaking of good English. In fact, the school kicked off this programme very positively by winning the top prize for the Lower Primary category and consolation for the Upper Primary category in a storytelling competition held at Jurong Point. This was reassuring that we are indeed heading towards the right direction.

SAPTA Food Fair

when people whom we rarely mixed around with stood close by to lend a helping hand to pull us up or to push us on further when we got tired. On one of our treks, we had to make a tricky descent down a mountain – boy, was that dangerous but really fun! We probably trekked a total of 10 km as a class on all of those days. Other than enjoying ourselves on our treks, we found signicance in bringing along various books

A trip abroad is never complete without some shopping, and that was no exception for us as most of us bought little souvenirs to remind us of our visit there. Patches of the natural scenery of padi-elds, the setting sun and bullocks or cows grazing in their pasture were a common and oddly beautiful sight. Another common sight in Vietnam, however, is dog meat, which was thankfully off-limits to us. Vietnam – a country we went to half-heartedly, but also departed from half-heartedly after our enriching experiences there. May God bless the land and its people!

SAPTA (St Andrew’s Parent-Teacher Association) organized a food fair on 30th July 2010. The students of Sec Two Normal Academic took part in it with great enthusiasm and helped raise funds. The parents were there to show their support and to help the Saints in their endeavour. With extended recesses for both lower and upper secondary classes, the canteen fast became “Makan [eat] Street”, with our boys strumming a guitar or hooting their vuvuzelas in their attempts to lure customers to their stalls. It was just as much fun as it was a learning experience for our budding entrepreneurs, under a new programme called Jacob’s Ladder for our Normal Academic students.

71st Prefects’ Commendation

On 23rd July 2010, we held our 71st Prefects’ Commendation at St Andrew’s Cathedral. 350 students witnessed the ceremony where 7 senior prefects and 7 school prefects were commended. Each of them renewed their commitment to preserve the tradition of the school and exercise their given authority to maintain order and discipline in the school.

The Student Government (SG) is one of the strategic thrusts of the school and it aims to raise the leadership standards among the students. Student leaders will serve the school, lead the student population and inspire their juniors to do the same. The SG includes the Senior Prefects, Uniform Group Leaders, CCA leaders, Upper Secondary Class Committee, Junior Leaders and Lower Secondary Class Committees. The Panel of Prefects, being at the top of the hierarchy, sets the tone and bearing for the various groups in the SG.

Our school was also privileged to be chosen as one of the pilot schools in Singapore to start the PAL programme. PAL stands for Programme in Active Learning and it is the Ministry’s attempt to bring forth learning in a fun and engaging manner to our Primary 1 and 2 pupils. PAL spans across 4 different arenas- Sports and Games, Visual Arts, Outdoor Education and Performing Arts. The pupils were introduced to the various modules through activities and hands-on experiences. All these were paramount in building the SEL competencies (Self-Awareness, Self-Management, Social Responsibility, Relationship Management and Responsible Decision Making) in them. This year has been a fruitful and eventful one for many involved. I hope that you will continue to lend us your support in every way possible. I look forward to another meaningful year with all of you.

The Primary 5 students had their P5 Adventure Camp at Sarimbun Scout Camp from 24th February to 28th February this year.The students were in eight groups named after the school values. They embarked on a fun-lled journey of self-discovery and development where they experienced life in the great outdoors, participated in many challenging and exciting activities such as rock-climbing, nature-ramble, river challenge, outdoor cooking, low elements, rafting, command and conquer and trekkers’ challenge.The students had a campre on the second day and many teachers joined them in their campre. Each group had to put up a performance and earned points for their groups. On the third day, the students were engaged in doing CIP. They cleaned up their assigned areas around the camp site. Overall, it was a fun and memorable event!

International Friendship Day

Ms Chua Xin Yuan, Head-of-Department for Craft & Technology, had this to say: “I am most pleased that the various partners have continued to support us in this event for the second year running. It was wonderful to know that our partners like the National Geographic Store and Canon acknowledge that it is important we nurture the youths of today with a keen sense of observation, creative experiences, and the desire to develop appropriate technical skills through the medium of photography.” The winners submitted very good entries and some were expert photographers while others were rank amateurs who found a good shot. One of our winners, Ryan Foo Yi Chern, who had captured an amazing snapshot of a rugby match between Anglo-Chinese School and St Andrew’s Sec, said: “I was actually very surprised. I didn’t expect to win anything as I felt that my photograph was not up to the standard after seeing last year’s prize-winning photos.”

“Celebration of Youth” is the second photo competition in loving memory of an old boy, Mr Tan Teck Meng. The theme was in keeping with the spirit of the inaugural Youth Olympic Games, which brings together youths of different races and backgrounds to celebrate true sportsmanship.

Service Learning/CIP 2010 As part of the Service Learning /CIP, the Primary 6 pupils did home visits to Sree Narayana Mission Home, Muhammadiyah Welfare Home and Jamiyah Nursing Home. It was a positive learning experience as they played games and interacted with the residents there. Joelin from 6D commented, “I found the visit super meaningful. I had the chance to talk to the elderly as I seldom interact with my grandparents. The visit made them really happy.”

Participants of the photographic competition had explored different interpretations to this year’s theme, “Celebration of Youth”. All winning entries embodied the energy and spirit of youth, or simply captured a photograph of the Generation Next in action.

His inspiration was a shot of his friend, Matt Joosa, who showed a tremendous lot of enthusiasm and support for St Andrew’s throughout the rugby match. Ryan managed to capture his winning shot of Matt bursting into another round of cheering at just the right moment.

Another winner, Isaac Tang En-De, an aspiring photographer, had a moment of inspiration. Quoting him, “I usually check out photos on Flickr to nd out how good photographs can be. During the rugby nals last year where we were triumphant, I saw the scene right in front of me and managed to capture it in the wink of an eye!” Isaac’s passion for photography grew in 2008 when a close friend of his would constantly take pictures when they hung out together. That really got him interested and so he decided to use his father’s photography equipment to try it out, since he was a bit of a photographer himself.


A play written by a Saint, Mr Ian Loy, was put up by Saints’ Drama Club on 30th and 31st July 2010. The play showed an old boy’s almost intuitive understanding of what it means to be a Saint. The play about a newly-admitted student who felt he did not belong and the exasperated responses of his seniors, was an interesting ensemble of all the mischievous antics boys could get up to. It offered an insight into the world of a Saint and the play had the audience laughing out loud at some instantly recognisable “Saintly” behaviour.

Other winners, like Category A second prize winner, D Sri Laakha from Canberra Primary School, took her photo, “Get Set and GO!”, on a spur-of-themoment. Inuenced by her school in 2010, she currently has a big interest in photography and wishes to improve. Her win has encouraged her to aspire to greater heights. On the whole, many of those who won had not expected to win and were most pleasantly surprised. To me, this is a wonderfully joyous occasion to celebrate another kind of talent in our midst. As they say, “A picture says a thousand words” – I couldn’t agree more!

Reported by Julian Chong Geng Wen (2A)

On 21st July 1964, 25,000 Malays gathered at the Padang to celebrate Prophet Muhammad’s birthday. Because of a tussle with a policeman, this led to a mass riot between the Chinese and Malays.

Every year, Singapore celebrates Racial Harmony Day to reiterate the importance of trust and tolerance amidst the diversity that is Singapore – so that we may truly be Singaporean, regardless of race, language or religion. At Saint Andrew’s, the spirit of Racial Harmony was felt by all on 21st July. Our principal, Mrs. Charles, gave an inspiring speech in the morning assembly to begin the day. Many staff members turned up in ethnic attire to add to the aura of the day. Our young Saints had some interesting lessons followed by some interactive games - on the ethnically diverse food in Singapore!

Captivated Audience

On International Friendship Day, I was very proud to be able to present about my hometown, Myanmar. I was given the opportunity to present the languages of Burma (Myanmar). I was very happy to share about my culture and language with my school. International friendship day is an important day as it reminds us that regardless of where we come from, we should all live in peace and harmony. My schoolmate presented about his hometown, Phillipines. By: Aye Phyu Thant, Cheryl (4I) Games, Prizes, Laughter - Children all smiles

For The Love Of Gymslips The common bond that most sitting in this theatre surely have is that we all were once part of a school and school life. The, perhaps less so, common bond is that some of us, in an attempt to escape the dull diet of prescribed texts, will have sneakily binged on the non nutritious brain fodder that is the boarding school novel. Daisy Pulls It Off is not just a play about the travails of a schoolgirl and her companions, but about a form of writing that was once very fashionable. It is an affectionate take – or parody – on the multitude of boarding school novels that were so popular during the mid to late twentieth century. Formulaic, with stock, often larger than life, characters and an overwhelming sense that goodness will soon see the less pure of soul punished by detention, privilege denial or even expulsion. Written from the stance of the character to entertain rather than preach morality, although the conversion and rehabilitation of the ‘bad egg’ and bringing on side is a sentimental though satisfying conclusion. From the 1920s onwards, some girls were starting to have a bit more fun while their many sisters still knew their place. In the years to follow, characters in the school novel provided inspiration and a form of escapism by their apparent sense of independence away from home. On closer read, school friends and teachers appear to belong to a form of extended family. Still, it’s a community with a pecking order. A sense of fairness prevails long preceding a modern age of political correctness. Enjoy the innocence, the nostalgia and the hark back to a quaint turn of phrase now alien to our ears but once as familiar a sound as street-speak is today.

About Auston Institute Auston has glorified in its role as a tight-knitted, industry focused, urban institute which has consistently provided mainstream courses.
