Racial Harmony Day 2012

Students and staff of Beacon celebrated Racial Harmony Day on 23 July 2012. Beacon was honoured to have Ms Denise Phua, MP for Moulmein-Kallang GRC and Adviser to Kampong Glam Grassroots Organisations as the Guest of Honour for the special occasion. Event highlights consisted of mass line dancing, multi-national fashion show, song performances, and ended off with a buffet session. Elderly residents reminisced about their childhood days as they played traditional Asian games such as “Five Stones”, “PickUp Stix”, “Hopscotch” and “Chapteh”. Through this event, Beacon’s international students gained a better understanding of Singapore’s various cultures, traditions, and the importance of racial harmony – the key to keep a country united and strong as a nation. The event was sponsored by Beacon International College and supported by the Inter-Racial and Religious Confidence Circles (IRCC) and the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS).

Crime Prevention Seminar

A Crime Prevention seminar was held on 4th July 2012 at Beacon College, by members from the Singapore National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) and NCPC’s Vice-Chairman, Mr. Eric Low. Over 30 students attended the seminar and had a time of fun and learning.

BBQ at East Coast Park

The Business Communication students (May – June 2012) decided to organise a barbeque at East Coast Park on 22nd June 2012 about which to write their report. They realised there was much more to barbeques than just eating by the time they had booked the pit, bought the food and lit the fire. The weather was hot, but perfect for a day at the beach. Everyone discovered something  new, whether it was a skill or a taste experience, and a great time was had by all. The barbeque provided a good topic for the report.
