YCKSS taps into the community resources and platforms to create opportunities to enhance our students’ learning experiences beyond school. We actively seek to collaborate and engage in community activities and it is evidenced from the various events our students participated such as SYF Celebrations Festival Concert in 2018 and Yio Chu Kang Community Club National Day Observance Day 2018, etc.
Yio Chu Kang Secondary School was invited to perform in 2023 National Day Parade (NDP) Act 4 – Onward as One with Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Secondary School, CHIJ St Theresa’s Convent and Nanyang Girls’ High School. Leading up to NDP, students engaged in a series of activities, from intense weekly training sessions in school, evening performances at the Padang to learning journey and bonding sessions with participants of the other 3 schools.
Participating in the National Day Parade (NDP) as a school was an unforgettable and pride-filled experience. The atmosphere was electrifying as students from various schools came together, adorned in the red-white costume for on 9 August. As the students danced in unison to the NDP 23 Theme song, “Shine Your Light”, they signified the light that would lead us ahead into the future. The camaraderie and sense of unity among schools created a powerful sense of national identity and belonging.
The NDP experience not only instils a deeper appreciation for the nation but also offers students an opportunity to forge lasting friendships and unforgettable memories as we come together to celebrate their shared identity as citizens of the nation.
