This year's National Youth Achiever's Forum was held at Bukit View Secondary School. Our Director, Celine Jessandra was invited to be a Speaker at the forum for the Youth Achievers who attended the forum from all the different schools all over Singapore!

The forum aims to share and inspire the students on how "Character attributes to Success". The other Speakers were Roy Tay (National Sailor), Venus Wang (Established Property Agent), Goh Chern (Youth Leader) and Chua Sihui (Youth Leader).

During the Break-out session, the students were given a musical treat by Celine Jessandra Artistes - Josephine Hung, Clement Chen and Tan Fang Zhi. Celine also shared her experiences in the field of entrepreneurship and the performing arts with the students during the cosy sharing session.

July 2008 - South Zone Goes Asian! (Crescent Girls' School)
South Zone Goes Asian was a cluster event that sought to bring all students and teachers together for an Asian Festival Carnival. Celine Jessandra School of Performing Arts received an extremely warm response from the Crescent Girls who made wonderful audiences on that day!

The Artistes and Performers put on a fantastic performance of Mandarin and Korean Vocal numbers as well as Korean and English Lyrical Hip Hop dance items much to the delight of the audiences who screamed, applauded and sang along through the entire 45 mins performance! The atmosphere was tingling with lots of excitement and adrenaline for the performers who brought the house down with their performances!

Our Korean Teacher was also busy conducting a Workshop on Korean Food - Cooking Demonstration for students and teachers. The participants of the workshop got their appetites whet with the culinary demonstration of Bul Go Gi (Korean Beef) and Ddeok Bbok-ki (Korean Rice Cakes)! Food tasting concluded the session on an enjoyable and happy note!
