Lifting high our banner through Mastery, Growth & Service In Term 2 of 2021, the MGS heartbeat continued to pulsate with events in school that straddled the virtual and physical. Both MGS girls and staff took the hybrid format of school programmes, now the new normal, in their stride.

DSA E-Info Sessions for our P6 parents and the public held in April were widely subscribed to. We were happy to reach out to future MGS girls with the informative E-Open House portal showcasing the distinctive MGS education experience, as well as through an immersive panoramic virtual tour of the special features of our campus.

Be it the sporting arena or on stage, our girls always come alive during the National School Games and SYF Presentations. This year, we are proud to have garnered sterling achievements (Primary and Secondary) despite the curtailment of certain sports, as well as format adjustments to these events due to COVID-19 measures. The myriad talents of MGS students continue to be nurtured in an environment that celebrates our rich sporting legacy and arts heritage.

The anticipated Performing Arts Night took on a virtual form in Chikara, and was a shining testament to the strong performing arts culture at MGS. The stirring repertoire of performances featured in the virtual concert showcased the very best of our girls’ musical abilities. It was a memorable experience for the CCA groups, teachers and instructors in putting this digital production together with a lot of hard work, passion and dedication.

Notwithstanding the need to adapt to prevailing guidelines, cohort and other learning experiences such as P5 ROCs to Pulau Ubin, STEAM Week activities, and Careers Fest for the Sec 4s carry on in contributing to the growth of MGS students. The programmes honed life skills and opened perspectives for our girls, readying them for the future.

We also affirmed the importance of servant leadership at both Primary and Secondary investitures for the student leaders. Through various initiatives for the community and even within their own circle, our girls demonstrated a heart for service to others. Peer support leaders have been an integral support pillar for their schoolmates as they look out for the well-being of one another.

And as the month of May saw the nation tightening measures again in the light of escalating cases in the community, we are glad to witness the school community coming together in a continued joint effort to safeguard each member’s welfare, whether it was supporting the rollout of TraceTogether, or teachers and staff taking their vaccination against COVID-19. With the national announcement towards Home-Based Learning, students and teachers made the necessary preparations and embraced the shift readily. Even our little P1s took to HBL with aplomb!
