This trip gave them the opportunity to volunteer at the “Free the Bears” Cambodia sanctuary. Students have also immersed themselves in local Cambodian culture, trying new dishes, visiting temples and markets.

This term, our Grade 2, 3 and 4 students became naturalists and explorers as part of their UOS studies visiting Pasir Ris Mangroves to experience first-hand habitat, its residents and the positive and negative influence human activity has on the environment. Highlights of the day included spotting the many residents (just to reassure you contrary to the stories you may have been told there were no alligators, anacondas or Komodo dragons). The intrepid explorers then enjoyed picnicking in the park and team sports to end the day. This is a great example of classroom without walls where learning takes place on so many levels. If you haven’t visited Pasir Ris Mangroves we encourage you to ask your children to take you and teach you about this habitat.
In a Youth Premier League, U-14 Cricket match against SCC (Singapore Cricket Club), Rishab Jaykrishnan of Grade 7A put up a unique and spectacular performance by taking 7 wickets in 3 overs giving away only 3 runs.

“Mixed Media Piece” exhibited at ARTRAGEOUS EXHIBITION
There is a wealth of evidence that the Arts challenge us with different points of view, compel us to empathise with others, and give us the opportunity to reflect on our actions. Enrichment opportunities allow children and young people to explore the Arts in a different environment to the curriculum. Having structured, additional time to focus on the arts will only lead to skills development and discipline which can be translated back in the classroom.
A glimpse into our proud Grade 5 student Laranya Bera’s mixed media piece exhibited at the ARTRAGEOUS Exhibition at the Visual Arts Centre which received great appreciation from acclaimed artists, only strengthens our belief in the benefits of the Visual Arts in developing articulate thinkers. Good job Laranya Bera!

The Peoples Association of Singapore organised the Chingay Parade which took place this year on February 3rd and 4th 2023 to commemorate the Year of the Rabbit.
To showcase the vibrant, multi-ethnic and cosmopolitan cultures of Singapore, the theme this year was ‘Embrace Tomorrow’. Approximately 10,000 local and international performers were involved in the event.

After winning a zonal round against 450 teams, three groups (Aditya, Ridhima and I; Vivek, Anvay, and Dhruv; Ahan, Yashvir, and Abhyuday) from NPSI qualified for the finals of the 9th edition of the Infinity Maths Competition in Mumbai (by the Aditya Birla World Academy in association with BITS Pilani and the University of Waterloo). We had a chance to qualify for “quizzitch”, a head-to-head showdown among the top 5 teams; or for the “bulb your ideas” finals, where 5 teams would have to present the posters they had made to a panel of expert judges. Against all odds, my team with Aditya, Ridhima, and I, were the only ones at NPSI to make it to the Top 5 in the Senior category, and we steeled ourselves for the hardest test of our mathematical skill yet: quizzitch. Seated in front of hundreds of students and teachers, we answered questions from every mathematical discipline, keeping our wits about us and our buzzers in hand. At the end, all the points were tallied, and we were barely edged out by the school in third place. We returned to our seats with a spring in our steps, proud of our achievements. To our surprise, my team had again qualified for the “bulb your ideas” finals, and we got on stage to present our posters as best we could, bringing out the intricacies of the work we had done.
Amazingly, nearly all NPSI members had achieved a placement in an event. Vivek, Yashvir, and I had all gotten Bronze medals in the Clash of Mathematicians round, while Aditya and Dhruv had received Silver medals in the same. Ahan managed to get Gold medal, proving to be one of the best mathematicians in his category. Meanwhile in the “bulb your ideas” finals, the advanced team managed to get silver, and my team pulled through with first prize, beating all of the other senior schools!

Each year, students from eighth-grade team up to sell goods on Entrepreneurship Day. The entrepreneurship day was held on 8th December this year. Entrepreneurship day was a shopper's delight, from bookmarks, storybooks, and Christmas goods to recreational centres. With the help of music, lights, and beautiful decorations the usual classrooms were transformed into Fair-Value Mall and Christmas Wonderland.
This event serves as a great opportunity for students to showcase their creativity and develop the necessary skills to survive in the ever-evolving business environment. Students learn basic financial skills such as managing costs. Apart from this, students also got to learn about different marketing strategies and apply them to their stalls.
From coming up with the right prices for the goods to attracting customers with posters, decorations and Christmas carols, the event allowed students to recognize the skills and values that are needed for becoming an entrepreneur such as teamwork, resilience, and patience. This event was an exciting learning experience wherein students got an insight into the functioning of a business whilst being able to contribute the profits to charity.

It was a wonderful Alumni Event night with several of our alumni who wanted to reconnect with NPSI and its live campus. The old camaraderie and fun came out as the alumni interacted with many teachers, students and the school leaders. Wishing them success in all endeavours. A bigger event is being planned for 2023.
Congratulations to Ria Bhatia from Grade 2! She was awarded a “Distinction” for the Acting (Solo) Examination in the worldwide competition with Trinity College London.
She has competed with 850,000 students across 60 countries! She continues to excel in her performance skills!
The Primary Students had a fun time stretching their imagination through “Alice in Wonderland” dress-up theme! They were truly engaged with the music and dance! The activity helps to encourage and develop creativity and social skills.
Congratulations to Aanya Rao (IBDP Year 1, 2022-24)! She is one of the recipients of “The Diana Award 2022". One of the highest globally recognised awards a young person can achieve for social action or humanitarian efforts and empowers young people to make positive change! The award established in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, is given out by the charity of the same name and has the support of both her sons, The Duke of Cambridge, and The Duke of Sussex.
In 2018, Aanya was accompanying her relative to his dialysis sessions, when she was struck by the monochromatic feel in the dialysis centre. In June 2020, Aanya founded ‘Art:Connect’, a student-led initiative connecting the student art community with residents and patients of healthcare centres. Their philosophy is underpinned by the slogan, “Art can, and will, heal the world”. In the last 18 months, the organisation has grown to 40+ volunteers from schools across Singapore, aiming to showcase the immense talent of young people and their art for the good of the community, and leverage the “healing power of art” to help patients and healthcare workers through their most difficult times.

NPSI encourages holistic development of its students and giving it to the society is a key element of that.
NPSI students have over the years achieved consistent great IBDP results and 2022 is no exception! Congratulations to all IBDP 2022 students. The school achieved an average score of 39.23 points and a 100% pass as before. Seven students scored a perfect 45 and over half of the cohort scored or exceeded 40 points. The school thanks all teachers who taught the 2022 IBDP cohort, leaders and IB students and their parents for the commendable effort together! The achievement is even more special as this is the batch that bore the full blunt of the pandemic over two years. Wishing all IB students success in your next journey!
Many of our Top IB diploma scorers had their foundation in our excellent Early Years and Primary Programme! And have excelled in several areas capping their holistic education.
NPSI students unleashed their creativity in “Write for Kindness” competition held by the Singapore Kindness Movement (SKM) by securing first place in the story-writing and illustration category with the entry ‘Mellie’s Marvellous Garden'. Our students also won the 'Best Illustration' in the poetry-writing and illustration category with a delightful piece titled ‘Paint the World with Kindness’. This campaign inspires kindness in young children and is part of our holistic education paradigm!
