This competition actually happened early this year. March to be exact. This year, I was (and still am) a little ambitious. I sent 3 schools to enter- 2 primary schools and 1 secondary school. And needless to say, I was very pleased with their achievements, especially since this was the first time that all 3 schools participated in the competition.
For those who might be unaware of the competition format or what this competition is about, let me just briefly describe it. It is an impromptu storytelling competition where the students will not know the title or the theme to their stories till 15 minutes before they were supposed to be on stage. In these 15 minutes, they will then have to come up with a story that adheres to the themes or titles given. They will also be given a unique condition that they would have to incorporate into the story. The story would have to be between three to five minutes. At the end of the story, the students will be judged on clarity, creativity and content.
Teck Whye Primary School managed to get into the quarter finals for the group category. Rivervale Primary School managed to clinch the runner-up in the Individual Category.
The big win goes to Bukit Panjang Government High School, as the students emerged Champion for the Group Category.
Congratulations to all the winners!
