Singapore Day!! - Celebrate Down Under!!

Melbourne, Australia is often regarded as the 'multicultural capital' of the world, and with good reason. Residents from more than 140 nations live side-by-side in Melbourne, which makes it one of the world's most harmonious and culturally diverse communities.

To celebrate the thousands of residents, new-Australians, students and visitors from Singapore, Melbourne will be hosting 'SINGAPORE DAY' at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, on 4th October, 2008.




Come down to Singapore Day with fellow Singaporeans, and display your group identity any way you like!

The biggest group to turn up for Singapore Day stands to win attractive prizes!

Students no longer come to school to learn from us. Now they learn with us. The Ministry of Education (MOE) has developed a more holistic and engaging classroom environment called SEED (Strategies for Effective Engagement and Development) for Primary School students.

So vist us on Singapore Day and let your children (ages 6 to 9) have the SEED experience first hand. Classes begin at 11:30am, 1:30pm & 3:30pm.

Explore. Exchange. Be Entertained. That is the vision for the Singapore of the future that is exemplified by Marina Bay.Visit us on Singapore Day and come see for yourself how Singapore is morphing into a city of constant vibrancy and life.

Our popular home grown talents will be presenting a whole slew of exciting performances.

Yikes! Pete, I think SEED is no longer implemented under MOE. The new system is called STELLAR or something similar to that acronym! :D I was in the system when SEED was implemented for students but it doesn't quite work out the way it should. Hence the new acronym. ;)

Should be, if I'm not wrong about it!
