2014 Youth Day Celebrations @ SST - “Dress and Pledge” this Friday (4 July 2014)

Youth Day is a special day celebrated by many countries in the world to appreciate the youths’ achievement in each country. It is also celebrated to promote the contribution of young people to their countries’ development. In Singapore, Youth Day is celebrated on first Sunday of July every year. This year we will celebrate Youth Day in Singapore on 6 July 2014 (Sunday).

In SST, we will celebrate Youth Day on 4 July 2014(Friday). The theme for the day is “Dress and Pledge”. Through the events planned, we hope to raise awareness about less fortunate youths, celebrate the different talents of the youths in SST and to empower SST students to contribute to the community.

Students are encouraged to come dressed as Cosplay characters or in their home clothes.

Attire should still adhere to the fundamental philosophy of SST Student Code of Conduct. Hence, revealing clothes and clothes with objectionable prints should not be worn. Students are required to wear covered shoes. Students who do not wish to come in home clothes or Cosplay costumes can choose to come in full school uniform.

While you have fun dressing up and celebrating, we hope that you will also take time out to consider the less fortunate. Here is the programme for the day.
