Our Pride

A Convergence of Passion and Talent 

Yuying Secondary School has many students to be proud of. But every once in a while, a student stands out from the rest, a shining beacon of talent and ability. 

In 2018, Danyal Shah Bin Ashren Shah caught the attention of the school by being awarded the ASEAN School Games Best Sports Boy for Individual Sport as well as the Singapore Schools Sports Council Colours Award 2018 for Sepak Takraw. As if that was not enough of an achievement, he was also appointed as the Singapore Schools Team Captain (Sepak Takraw) in the ASEAN School Games 2018. He has represented Singapore not merely once but twice in the ASEAN School Games. Danyal has not only served in a leadership role, but he has also mentored newly appointed captains in his capacity as an advisor in the 2017 Sepak Takraw CCA Executive Committee. We applaud Danyal for his achievements and his service to others. 

The whole school wishes him the best in his academic and sporting endeavours. 

Yuying Enterprising Changemakers in Action!

Top Prize (Secondary Category) in NEA's G!nnovation Challenge 

7 students from Grow-Inc Club, a part of the ALP programme in Yuying Secondary School, participated in NEA's G!nnovation Challenge. In this competition, students identified a problem and provided innovative solutions. Our students chose to tackle an issue related to Climate Action, which focuses on Resource Conservation in the area of Food Waste Reduction. 

Our students demonstrated resilience and grit in the entire challenge and collaborated effectively in the entire problem-solving process. As part of the solution, our students garnered the support of the school community to reduce food waste and in the process, increased awareness of resource conservation in our school. In a short period of time, they collected and analyzed data, summarized key findings and presented to the entire school population. 

Yuying Secondary was awarded the Top Prize in the Secondary School Category in this G!nnovation Challenge 2018.
