On 8 August 2019, Kent Ridge held its 19 th Awards Day cum 54 th National Day celebration. Our theme for Awards Day was ‘Learn for Life’, which emphasizes the need to constantly upgrade ourselves to remain relevant in a fast-changing world. The occasion was graced by Mr Ng Wee Meng, our School Advisory Committee (SAC) Chairman Designate. The celebration started with a formal parade comprising the various uniformed groups to welcome the arrival of our Guest-of-Honour and other distinguished guests. The students looked smart in their uniforms and honoured our guests with an impressive march-past. In the hall, the Concert Band, Choir and Dance Club entertained the guests with their enthralling performances. Students who excelled academically and students who were outstanding in their Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) received their awards with great pride and satisfaction. Members of the staff who have served the school or Ministry for five years or more also received their long-service awards. For the National Day segment, the teachers and students sang to a medley of familiar National Day songs as we recalled the challenges and milestones of our nation. It is with Heart, Passion and Will that we build our confidence and look forward to greater success for our school and for Singapore.
