We’re running a Global Primary Storytelling and Global Secondary Presentation Competitions for our young learner students this semester. 

What are the benefits to my child?

This competition will help your child:

  • Build skills in online presenting and video storytelling
  • Explore their creativity and imagination
  • Develop their public speaking confidence
  • Win prizes!

What does my child have to do?

  • Primary 1 to 5 children should record a 4-minute video of them telling a story related to Singapore 
  • Primary 6 to Junior College students should record a 4-minute video of them giving a presentation on something they’re passionate about.
  • The deadline for submission is Sunday 22 November.
  • Shortlisted students will have the opportunity to compete in live online national and global finals via Zoom. 

How can my child prepare for this?

  • We will be running free online myClub Explorer sessions to help Primary 1 to 5 learners develop the skills needed for the competition. To sign up for these click here.
  • Primary 6 and Secondary students will complete 1 or 2 presentation skills lessons in class in November to support them with their presentations.
