Total Defence Quiz 2013

Total Defence Day (15th February) marks the British surrender of Singapore to the Japanese during World War 2. This annual event reminds us that the task of nation-building is not easy, and that we must work to preserve our present prosperity and stability.

TDD 2013 Theme – "Total Defence -- Will You Stand With Me?" 
TDD 2013 seeks to convey the message that we are able to enjoy what we have in Singapore today because of the determination and hard work of generations of Singaporeans who have stuck together, overcoming many challenges along the way and bringing Singapore forward to what it is today. As long as we remain united as one, we will succeed in building a secure and bright future for ourselves and our children.
To commemorate this event, the Serangoon StaRs took part in the Serangoon TDD Quiz 2013. 2H2, 2H5, and 2H6 emerged as winners of the quiz for Lower Sec Category, and 3I5, 3I7 and 5E1 emerged as winners for the Upper Sec Category. The winners participated in the assembly program and brought fun and laughter to the crowd. The assembly program included quiz and games that brought students closer to Singapore. The quiz tested students’ knowledge about Singapore and the games taught students the importance of standing together and supporting each other.
