150 films from Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Philippines and China were screened at the Across Asia Film Festival (AAYFF) gala evening last week. The quality of the film entries was astounding, and our judges from Disney, Lucas Film and MediaCorp were full of praise for the high levels of technical and artistic expertise on display.

It was wonderful to be back at the National Gallery, Singapore for our Interpretations event last weekend. The showcase of music, poetry and visual arts by our senior students was incredible and the event highlighted the importance that visual arts has on influencing our responses to our experiences; be it through sound, word or visual language. It also is a great showcase of cross curriculum initiatives and the importance of transdisipinary research in supporting learning. Well done to all staff and students involved.
