National Day 2014 Celebration @ CGS

This year Crescent Girls School celebrated the nation’s 49th birthday with the yearly tradition of donning red and white and having many exciting events lined up. The Crescent Girls’ School Symphonic Band kick-started the celebration with a live performance of the National Anthem during morning assembly. This was followed by the march-in by the various uniformed groups with the Singapore flag, a grand spectacle that every Crescentian looks forward to. Mrs Tan then delivered the national day message, after which Mr Seow led the school with the recitation of the recollections. The morning assembly ended with the singing of some national day songs. 

To begin the second segment of the National Day Celebrations, we had our House leaders lead us in the mass dance, a thoroughly invigorating but nonetheless enjoyable exercise.   To add to the festive and celebratory atmosphere, delicious food by the Parents Support Group was served at the canteen. 

The highlight of the day’s celebration was the highly anticipated National Day Concert. Thoroughly enjoyable were the engaging performances such as the community singing by the Secondary 4 classes, which focused on patriotism and love for our nation as all Crescentions cheered and waved their flags from side to side. This moment served as a great bonding moment among friends and teachers as many voices chorused each and every song together as a single voice.

Also putting up a splendid performance were the Crescent Girls’ School Symphonic Band and the Angklung. Not to be outdone were the contributions by the Secondary Ones who decorated their classrooms, which were featured during the celebrations, as well as the video montage put together by each of the Secondary Two classes.  

Overall, the celebrations were well received as every single Crescentian partook in the activities and experienced in their own way the spirit of universal “sisterhood”.
