CCA Events and Achievements
- Finalists for the Trust for Sustainable Living International Essay Competition 2020
The theme for this essay competition was Partner Power. Xavier Tung and Bryan Yap made it to the finalists’ list and were invited to take part in the Oxford International Debates which were to have been held at Oxford Union, Oxford, United Kingdom. However, they were cancelled as the travel ban was in place. The librarians were not deprived of the opportunity to participate in the debates as they were held on-line. The librarians were also invited to take part in the TSL International Students’ Seminar which were also held online for a period of five days. This seminar allowed the students to collaborate with international students on themes as diverse as biodiversity. This was a very unique experience as the students had to go online at night as the events were beamed live in the afternoon from Oxford, UK. These were indeed very enriching experiences for the librarians as they were a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for them.
- Our School, Our Stories MOE student competition
The MOE organised a photo story essay to capture the life in a school. The library submitted a photo essay under the title, A day in the library.
- NLB’s Historical Scene Investigation competition 2020
The topic chosen for this completion was Pandemics as it is a very current issue and it was interesting to learn that Singapore had been through pandemics in the 20th century as well.
