Victory belongs to those who are prepared. We are happy to have overcome many hurdles and emerged first runner-up in the South Zone Inter-School Basketball Championship.
“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t
accept not trying.”
We believe in team effort and the spirit of never give up. This sport has provided the students with an opportunity to learn many life skills that will not be possible from the textbook. Through the various training opportunities, we train not only in the physical/ technical component, but also the mental skills to gear the players for the challenges that lie ahead of them. Henceforth, providing a platform for students to build up a stronger character, better sportsmanship and hone their self-discipline to be a better person.
Basketball is a sport that is not only physically demanding, but also mentally challenging as well. It teaches one to be disciplined in many aspects; discipline to work together as a team, discipline to train our minds and body to press on when fatigue kicks in on court.
Over the years, basketball has grown to be more than a CCA to me. It has become such a huge part of me that it forms the very fabric of the Guangyang family. We have many ups and downs and we share many joys and sorrows together. As we groom the students to become better players, the students have also in turn, matured and even motivated us in becoming better educators and facilitators to embark on this exciting journey together.

Annual camp held at the end of the year to foster team bonding. They took part in some enrichment and team-bonding activities and wrapped up the camp with a barbeque session in the evening.
Off the court, the team gets together for various events as well. This includes the revision session prior to major examinations as well as the fun bonding sessions before the training officially resume after examinations.
