"United Warm Melodious"

About the CCA


The Choir was established in 1999 when the school began. Since then, the choir has matured musically and grown in strength. It performs regularly in school events, as well as in public performances.

The Choir has been participating in the Singapore Youth Festival Central Judging of Choirs since 2001. In 2009, through hardwork and perseverance, the choir was awarded the prestigious Gold Award. In 2012, the choir was also awarded the Colours Award for their consistent achievements in the SYF.

The Choir had the opportunity to perform in many school and public events such as the National Day Parade in 2005, Community Concert at Singapore General Hospital in 2008 Choral Exchange Programme in Brisbane, Australia in 2010 and Joaquim Chorale Public Concert at Republic Polytechnic in 2010.


Message from Teacher IC

Our choir members join the choir because they have very strong love and passion for music and singing. The choir training develops them musically. But most importantly we hope to instil the following values in them through choir training.

RESPONSIBLE ... 

  • in executing the assigned task during training and organizing special projects. 
  • in managing their studies and CCA commitments. 

DISCIPLINED … 

  • in attending every choir practice punctually. 
  • in mastering the music pieces and completing given task. 

CONFIDENT… 

  • as an individual and a performer. 

GRACIOUS… 

  • in appreciating the efforts put by fellow choir members, teachers, alumni and most importantly, the choir instructor, Ms Grace.
