National Day Celebrations 2018

On 7 August, PL came together as a family to celebrate our Nation's 53rd year of independence. Even the wet weather could not dampen our spirits as we sang our hearts out to familiar National Day melodies. We would like to thank Associate Professor Dr Benjamin Ong, for gracing the event as our Guest of Honour. And also, a big thank you to everyone who played a part in making the celebration a successful one.
