Be Yourself Day

As part of the Crezunite week, Be Yourself Day (BYD) was held on Monday, 26th March 2018. This year's theme for BYD was childhood shows. We chose this theme as we believe that Crescent is our second home, where we share our joy and sorrow together like a family. The celebration started with a fashion runway where Crescentians donned themselves in fashionable costumes that bring back precious childhood memories. 

During the fashion show itself, models from each class showcased their flamboyant costumes to the other Crescentians with matching music and a short description of their chosen childhood show while walking down the aisle to the stage. Everyone was enthusiastic and cheered on for each other. 

At the end of the event, everyone took photos together. It was indeed a fun and enjoyable moment where every Crescentian came to school in a costume based on the theme instead of their usual school uniform. It was truly a memorable and unique experience especially for the soon graduating Secondary 4 and new Secondary 1 batch.

With this year's remarkable success, we look forward to an even more engaging and memorable Be Yourself Day commemoration in 2019.

Crescent Sports Carnival

Crescentians ended our Crezunite week with a bang, as we gathered at Toa Payoh Stadium for our Biennial Sports Carnival on 29 March 2018. This year’s theme, Convergence in Diversity, allowed Crescentians with different talents to come together as one family. Everyone was cheering for one another during the race, despite their different Houses. 

The fringe activities were a huge success, from “Feed the Mascots” to “Fairy Toss Plus”, with droves of Crescentians filing into the field and playing games specially planned and created by the House Leaders. All in all, Crescentians enjoyed watching their friends, classmates, teachers and even parents in action, as they demonstrated their skills on the track, winning points for their Houses. 

Finally, the prize presentation arrived: everyone clapped enthusiastically as their friends stood proud on the podium, each receiving their awards from the Vice-Principals and our Guest of Honour, Ms Daisy Ng. The bright smiles of the Crescentians signified the elation felt that day, as it was a great way to end off Crezunite week with all 5 Houses coming together as one Crescent.

Speech Day 2018: Developing Future Ready Learners

Speech Day 2018 was yet another special and significant occasion celebrated at Crescent for current students, ex-Crescentians and teachers. We were honoured to have Ms Fadilla Alkaff, former chairman of the Crescent Girls’ School Parent Support Group, to grace the occasion. 

This year, as shared by our Principal, Mrs Helen Chong, in her annual report,  Crescentians did all of us proud with their outstanding achievements not only in academics, but also in co-curricular activities. The teachers were presented with awards for their many years of dedicated service to our school, being the patient and supportive motivators behind Crescentians’ success.

The audience was treated to splendid performances put up by the Crescent Girls’ School Symphonic Band and the Chinese & Modern Dance. The Symphonic Band opened the morning’s celebrations with song themes selected from The Incredibles, UP, Ratatouille, Cars and Toy Story. Conducted by Mdm Tan Soh Hwa, the Symphonic Band gave a lovely performance, capturing the attention of the audience and bringing a great start to the event. The Chinese and Modern Dance closed the ceremony with an original item to express their journey throughout their four years in Crescent. 

At the end of the ceremony, many tears were shed and the atmosphere was filled with nostalgia. In everyone’s smiles, there was a hope - hope for a bright future, hope for a successful journey ahead and hope to keep Crescent’s flag soaring.
