On Friday, 4 October, the 2019 National Youth Achievement Award (NYAA) Gold Award Presentation Ceremony was held in Singapore at the ITE Headquarters.
We are delighted that 21 Class of 2019 graduates achieved the award. Three Tanglin students were able to attend the ceremony, receiving their awards which were presented by President Halimah Yacob and Ms Indranee Rajah, Minister, Prime Minister's office and Second Minister for Education and Second Minister for Finance.
The NYAA programme consists of three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. It is open to all young people aged 13-30 years and aims to develop personal qualities of self-reliance, perseverance, and a sense of responsibility to themselves and to society. To qualify for the NYAA Gold Award, a participant is required to complete a balanced programme of non-competitive activities under four areas (Service, Skill, Physical Recreation and Adventurous Journey) over a minimum period of 18 months, or 12 months if they have already achieved Silver. They also do a compulsory Residential Community Service Project.
Congratulations to the following former Tanglin students on their outstanding achievements and for their contribution to society:
Gemma Heber Percy
Holly Le Grice

Mr Allan Forbes, Head of Senior School said: "This is a record-breaking year and the result demonstrates the huge amount of hard work and commitment of students, staff and parents over the past two years."
