Support SST Students in i.Code

Dear Students,

Students from SST INC are currently participating in i.code, a National Infocomm Competition. The primary objective of this competition is to create an app that fulfils a particular set theme. The theme this year is 'iCode to celebrate'. Various prizes will be awarded in this competition, including the 'Most Popular Award' whereby the Instagram photo of a team's poster with the most likes will clinch it. We hope that you too would show your support by liking (clicking on the hearts) our posters with your Instagram accounts.

I&E Exploring Entrepreneurship Camp (9-10 September)


Dear Sec 1 SST Students,

We will be running the Exploring Entrepreneurship (EE) Camp on 2 days (during office hours) at Ngee Ann Poly for you. You can access the tentative schedule here:


This is a flagship partnership between Ngee Ann Poly and our school. The aim is to enthuse SST students to become innovative entrepreneurs and dynamic problem-solvers. It is a unique opportunity for you to learn from Poly lecturers from the School of Business and Accountancy.

Please free yourself from all other commitments on 9-10 September as you will be fully engaged in the camp. We will meet in the Indoor Sports Hall, ISH, on 9 Sept at 7:40am. Subsequently, we will be at either Ngee Ann Poly or Farmart, and you will be dismissed on both days from Ngee Ann Poly by 6pm.

If you have any queries, kindly email me at dennis_lam@sst.edu.sg or call me at ext 401 during office hours. I apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you!

Best Regards,
Mr Dennis Lam


NKF Booth & Talk @SST (27 & 28 August)

Dear Students.

National Kidney Foundation(NKF) would be hosting a game booth in the canteen during recess on Thursday & Friday as a lead up to the assembly talk for Lower Secondary (Health Talk).
Do try out the activities at the booth as they would have a game booth consisting of mock dialysis machine, dialysers and needles that are required during the treatment process.

The objective of the booth & talk is for students to understand the importance of kidneys in our body ecosystem and what happens when our kidneys fail. Also, NKF would hope to educate students how they can prevent kidney disease.

SG50 gift of a Lang Lang Steinway Designed Baby Grand in the MPH

Dear Students,

SST has just received our Lang Lang Steinway Designed Baby Grand Piano. This piano is an SG50 gift to the school by the Sing50 committee and in return for it, we are all obliged to take care of it, use it well, as well as promote local music.

80 of our performing arts CCA students and staff recently attended the Sing50 concert on 7 August to enjoy the tribute to 50 years of Singapore music and we also witnessed Chinese virtuoso Lang Lang and 50 other pianists from age 7 to 52 with the Metropolitan Festival Orchestra perform the Three Movement Concerto which was composed by Dr Kelly Tang. One of the 50 baby grands at this concert now belongs to SST!

Our baby grand is now housed in the Multi Purpose Hall and thanks to the Ops team, the piano is now seated on a specially customised platform.

Plans are underway to feature it in concerts and other programmes so if you have a desire to perform your piece on the piano, do drop me a line. We are also looking into procedures to allow students who wish to practise on the baby grand for your performance or examination pieces. I will keep you updated once we have decided the best way to do this.

Any further enquiries about the baby grand piano and the use of it can be directed to Ms Patricia Ng, email patricia_ng@sst.edu,sg or contact her during office hours on 65717414.
