During the past two weeks flag-raising ceremony, the Heads of College presented the 'Industria' pins to five outstanding students. 'Industria' is a special pin of honour for students who have achieved exceptional results and awards in various areas, both inside and outside of school.
Our motto is industria which is Latin for ‘hard work’ and is symbolised by the bee at the heart of the school crest. Our students are encouraged to develop a growth mindset in all that they do, understanding that they can accomplish great things through perseverance and a willingness to learn from their mistakes.
To this end, the Industria pin encourages students to be persistent in their pursuit of improvement. We expect students to be engaged, energetic and proactive in their studies and lives and to continuously progress in their pursuit of academic excellence and personal fulfilment.

吴泳萱 Olivia Wu
Determined and Persistent Ballerina
“2022年新加坡 Youth Arts Festival”铜奖；
Olivia is a young dancer with a passion for ballet and a resolute personality. She started her ballet studies five years ago. With her perseverance and solid skills, she has won many awards in national and international ballet competitions in the past few years. ￼
2023 UK Royal International Art Competition Dance Professional

2023 Atlantis International Art Competition Silver Award;
2022 Asian International Art Festival Silver Award;
2022 Youth Arts Festival Singapore Bronze Award;
2022 International Dance Competition Spoleto China Competition Spring Preliminary Bronze Medal.
Learning ballet is a challenging task. During Olivia's five years of study, she had to spend time every day doing physical training, repeating over and over again the "tedious" basic movements of pointing toes, side splits and front splits. She can spend up to six hours daily in the two months leading up to a major competition. It was heartening to see that Olivia persevered, eventually making her stand out among the many ballet learners. Olivia confidently said, "Unless one day I am old, I will not easily give up dancing; my goal is very clear".
