Speech Day 2017
22 Apri 2017 was a day of ‘Rising Above and Looking Beyond’. This day was a special day as it was the day Crescent Girls’ School celebrated the achievements of the 2016 cohort and our graduated seniors. We also welcomed the Divisional Director of Student Development, Ministry of Education who was our former principal, Mrs Tan Chen Kee, back as the Guest of Honour to grace this special occasion. Also present were former principals and staff of Crescent, people who had contributed significantly into shaping Crescent to what it is now - an premier school focused on nurturing Crescentians to become ladies and leaders of tomorrow.
This year’s theme of “Rising above, looking beyond” reminded all Crescentians present to always rise above difficulties and look beyond imperfections and challenges. This year’s Speech Day not only gave recognition to those who had excelled in their academic and co-curricular achievements, but also served as a day to encourage and motivate Crescentians to keep working harder and strive for success.
There were many acdemic and CCA awards presented. Students were also acknowledged for their service to the school such as the President of the Student Council and the best cadets of each Uniformed group. The guests, parents and awardees were also entertained by the CGS Symphonic Band and Chinese and Modern Dance Society. The symphonic band’s performance, “Sunny Island”, was a light-hearted march commissioned for SYF 2017 by Mr Chua Tiong Hong and it was truly a treat to the ears. The dance performance encompassed the values of courage, determination and resilience and it was indeed wonderful.
All too soon, the ceremony came to an end. There were many tears of joy shed in the auditorium and in the canteen. The awardees had put in so much hard work and commitment throughout the years and on this special day, they reaped the fruits of their labour. As we watched all of this unfold, we knew one thing for sure; Crescent’s flag was, is and always will be soaring high.
