(20121110) (Sec 1) Workshop@DigiPen on 10 Nov 2012: ProjectFun

Dear Sec 1 Students

Through the 4 hours of exposure, we hope that you have a good overview of what we learnt in subjects like Physics and Mathematics can be meaningfully applied in the design of games :)

In fact, the activity you went through yesterday was a new version of the workshop, which the previous batches did not get to come up with a complete executable game with scores :)

As a follow-up, we would like to hear your feedback. Please complete the following form.





In addition, DigiPen is running a workshop on 2D Game Programming the November holiday, for those of you who would like to learn the production of games through ProjectFUN in greater depth.

(20121106) (Sec 3 only) Participation in IDA's 1-to-1 Computing Case Study

Dear Students

In March 2012, the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) commissioned a 1-to-1 Computing Case Study to capture good practices as well as learning points from schools that have implemented the 1-to-1 ICT-enabled learning programmes. The Study attempts to draw out interesting insights that others can learn from before embarking onto the 1-to-1 computing initiative. To do this, data is gathered from academic staff, students and parents through face-to-face interview as well as online survey.

Being a school that has implemented the 1-to-1 ICT-enabled programme since its inception, SST has been identified as one of the selected schools to participate in this Study. IDA would like to invite  Sec 3 students to participate in this online survey. 

IDA will be contacting you via your school email account this week. Please look out for the email and respond to the survey as soon as you receive it.

Thank you very much.

(20121102) Appeal for Student Volunteers for Project Needy Care 2012 (Community Service)


Dear students,

Some Sec 2 and 3 students are currently working on a two-part service project, entitled 'Project Needy Care 2012'. Their community work consists of a newspaper collection to raise funds for EN Community Services, as well as a house-cleaning project to aid the poor and needy. They would like to appeal for student volunteers to help in the flyer distribution (on 20 Nov, Tuesday, 0900-1200 hrs) and newspaper collection (on 24 Nov, Saturday, 0800-1700 hrs). More details like the reporting venue and service points will be released at a later date after confirming the number of student participation, as discussions are still on-going between the project team and the contractor who will be collecting the newspapers.

For this project, the team is hoping to get at least 100 people to participate, as they aim to cover near to 40 blocks of flats in one day. As such they would really require a large number of SST students to come forward to volunteer for this activity. Potential participants should be physically healthy and fit, have no serious medical conditions, are able to carry out strenuous activity for a substantial duration of time in one day.

Participants for this community service will gain a rich experience of serving the community by way of fund-raising and direct interaction with the community, as well as obtaining some CIP hours (approved by school).

If you are interested in participating in this project, please SIGN UP HERE ! (Closing deadline is 9 November 2012, Friday). Please note that there will be briefing sessions before the actual flyers distribution and newspaper collection dates.

Thank you very much!
