Project Passport was introduced to encourage students from the 10 different SAGE member schools to initiate collaborative projects aimed at bringing young people together to make a difference to their environment or community.
The participants were expected to work as a pair and propose a project that allowed them to collaborate with students from another SAGE member school. The winners of the project get to visit the partner school they propose and actually carry out their proposed project with the students of the identified school.
The judging team was comprised of teachers from the different SAGE member schools. They were given a tough job as the standard of entries from all the SAGE schools was phenomenal. It was obvious that a great deal of research and thought had gone into the project concepts and written reports. The videos produced by the groups were not only entertaining, but showed a great deal of passion on the part of the students and creativity in the way they conveyed their message.
Team 1 of Nanyang Girls’ High School, comprising Selina Xu and Lee Xin Min, was ranked the top performing team by the judges. This project will see the lucky two young ladies travelling to The Perse School at Cambridge, UK to conduct focus group discussions with the Perse students. They will put up an interactive showcase on how the Nanyang culture and identity are brought about through its history and obtain current identity statements via a portable expression wall to be buried in a time capsule. They will also be writing a report of their findings to be shared with the entire SAGE community.
Selina Xu and Lee Xin Min will be travelling to the UK in November this year. We wish them all the best in their project implementation!
