31st YMCA Plain English Speaking Award (PESA) 2017
The YMCA Plain English Speaking Awards (PESA) was started in 1986 by Metropolitan YMCA of Singapore. Subsequently, the decision by the Ministry of Education to initiate a national public speaking competition led to today's annual national PESA competitions with the primary aim of promoting the effective and articulate use of plain yet attractive spoken English among students in Singapore. The English Department is proud to share that Nitra Natasha Vincent from 5 Faith received the Achievement Award in the Upper Primary Category while Kaelyn Yeo Jing En from 3 Faith earned a spot in the Finals of Lower Primary Category. Well done and congratulations, Nitra and Kaelyn!
