Dunearn Presents at the Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors Summit 2017
On 6th July 2017, Dunearn presented at the inaugural Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors Summit (CWSAS) 2017 held at Anglo-Chinese School (Independent). The CWSAS is a biennial event that is held to recognise and celebrate schools’ efforts to promote Cyber Wellness through their Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors.
the CWSAS was graced by Associate Professor Muhammad Faishal Ibrahim, Senior Parliamentary
Secretary, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Social and Family Development as
the Guest-of-Honour for the event. In his presence, the new resource for
teachers called the “Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Training Handbook” was
launched successfully at the summit. The handbook was developed to encourage
more student-driven Cyber Wellness initiatives at the school level and we are
delighted to share that Dunearn is one of the schools featured in the handbook.
At the CWSAS,
six Cyber Wellness Student Ambassadors from six different schools received their
inaugural “Cyber Wellness Student Ambassador Award (CWSA)”, an award which
recognised their commitment and leadership in championing school-wide Cyber
Wellness outreach efforts and positively influencing their peers. We are pleased to announce that our student ambassador, Rebecca Phua Zi Wei from 4 EM2 was one
of the six awardees.
Congratulations to our Dunearnites who have done our school proud!

Higher Institution and Career Week 2017
Term 1 Week 5 had been an exciting week for the students from the graduating classes. They took part in our annual Higher Institution and Career Week organised by the Educational Career Guidance Committee. Various institution of higher learning, such as NAFA, Junior Colleges and all the polytechnics took part in this event. Valuable information on post-secondary school education was shared with our students. Our students also had the opportunity to learn more about the changes and development in these institutions from the lecturers and presenters.
The highlight of the event was the sharing on career choices by members of our alumni. We have a group of successful ex-students who returned to share their experience with their juniors. Some of the career choices shared were Architect, Food technologist and police. These talks have benefitted our students greatly as they provide some insight for our students, and it also motivates them to work hard in their studies.
We will also be showcasing our alumni members in the coming months, do look out for their stories on the school website.
Total Defence Day Commemorative Week 2017
As part of an enriching and immersive learning experience designed for the students during the Total Defence commemorative week, class representatives from each class participated in a Total Defence Exhibition organised by the Singapore Discovery Centre. As part of the exhibition, students were informed of the significance of the five pillars of total defence and participated in activities which highlighted their importance. They learnt how to put out fire, basic CPR skills and other useful life skills. More importantly, all of them had fun while learning.
