All Singapore Secondary Mathematics Competition for Normal Course Students.  
To stimulate greater interest and enrich students’ knowledge in Mathematics, as well as to provide an opportunity for Normal Course students to showcase their talent in mathematical knowledge and skills through solving competition questions, four teams of our Normal Stream students took part in the competition. One of our participants, Angelica Ho from 4N1, has emerged 10th position in the Upper Secondary NA Category.


Escape Room   

Students learn Mathematics by solving a range of Mathematics related puzzles hidden in a room in order to find the code which will unlock the door.
