PL clinches first place for the Tourism in Action Challenge 2015

On 15 October 2015, eight students from 3C1 and 3D1 participated in the Tourism in Action challenge jointly held by Urban Redevelopment Authority and Ngee Ann Polytechnic. The girls raced against time to come up with a Chinatown trail proposal suitable for tourists. During the challenge, they demonstrated financial literacy skills as well as their knowledge of various heritage sites, thus impressing the judges. They eventually walked away with the 1 st prize. To God be the Glory!

In the advent culminating to PL ’ s 100th anniversary, this year ’ s 99 th Founder ’ s Day (on 14 October 2015) was a quiet but distinguished celebration of God ’ s provision and faithfulness to the school.
