School marks 10th anniversary through giving

North Vista Secondary school marked its 10th anniversary with a series of events to raise $10,000 for a charitable cause which supports needy students.

The sum will be donated to The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (SPMF), which gives financial aid to children from low-income families to help with their school-related expenses. North Vista, formerly known as Thomson Secondary School before it relocated from Thomson Road to Sengkang in 2000, started the project in January to celebrate 10 years at its new site. Its 1,441 students raised the funds through projects such as running stalls at a carnival held after their annual road run in May, and putting on a concert in July.

The school’s principal, Mr. Lim Lai Chuan, said he hoped that through projects such as these, students would develop a sense of belonging to the community and become responsible citizens who would reach out to the needy.

The SPMF also received $12, 000 from the IT Management Association (ITMA) on Tuesday (Sep 13, 2011). The Association, which has about 300 members comprising mostly Chief Information Officers and IT directors, organized a charity movie screening in June and collected the money from members.
