    that Kaleidoscope has grown to be an essential and integral component of the Dunmanian journey leaving a profound impression on our students long after they have left Dunman High The arts are unique to the human condition and pervade every aspect of our existence and our lives Celebrated in conjunction with International Friendship Day this year s theme for Kaleidoscope is Vibrance through The Arts Dunman High is an institution that places a premium on holistic education and accordingly we have always recognised the value of the arts in our students development Today we formally celebrate the arts in Dunman High through a series of performances workshops and exhibitions featuring first and foremost Dunmanians involved in the Performing Arts Kaleidoscope is not just any Arts festival It is a Dunmanian Arts festival our very own Arts festival It is the fruit borne of the collective talent and effort of our students and teachers Under the guidance of our teachers students are involved in every aspect of the planning and organisation of this event Students are afforded the opportunity to express their creativity and talents grow in personal confidence collaborate and deepen their bonds with one another with the aim of raising performance standards and honing their appreciation of the arts In the process our students imbibe the heart of the school s mission that is To Care To Serve and To Lead In so doing they embody the twenty first century competencies that the Ministry of Education advocates for every s student in Singapore to possess As you immerse yourself today in the vast array of arts and cultural activities I exhort you to take a moment to step back and savour the vitality dynamism and soul of your fellow Dunmanians The Opening Ceremony which was graced by Guest of

    experiences in China and Taiwan and their experience in the United States Some of the highlights of the trip include the visit to the Capitol where students had the rare opportunity to see both the Senate and House of Representatives in session and also embark on a fascinating guided tour of the magnificent 19 th century neoclassical architecture that characterises both the interior and exterior of the Capitol and the Library of Congress The visit to the Pentagon brought about a better awareness of the defence policy of the United States and an insight into why many Americans would willingly sign up to join the armed forces The students also had the chance to learn more about Singapore s role and position on the international stage through the highly interactive dialogue sessions with Mr Ervin Yeo First Secretary at the Singapore Embassy in Washington and with Mr Mark Neo Deputy Permanent Representative at the Singapore Mission to the United Nations Furthermore the trip was sprinkled with visits to many highly acclaimed museums such as the high tech and interactive Newseum which chronicles the history of news reporting from the 16 th century to the present and the Holocaust Memorial Museum which provided an emotionally charged and eye opening encounter with the brutalities of war The visit to the John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum was particularly useful as what students had learnt from the history textbooks become live before them in the form of exclusive footages of interviews political debates accounts and photographs from the JFK Presidential Library collection The visits to the Ground Zero Museum and workshop and the 9 11 Gallery and memorial demonstrated the importance of remembrance and honoring the dead In addition to the visits to the various museums students also gained a more intimate knowledge of the history of the United States through the highly informative Constitutional Walk at Philadelphia the Freedom Trail at Boston which had a guide masquerading as a person from history and the visit to the Arlington Cemetery where they had the chance to witness the solemn 21 step changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as well as gain new knowledge of the Vietnam War the Korean War and the lives of the Kennedys from the useful commentaries from the local guide Many students attested to how the visits to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University were very helpful as they gained a better understanding of the liberal arts programme in the United States and information that would help them make more informed decisions related to their future career or educational path The sharing sessions with students from the DHS alumni doing either undergrad or post graduate studies at these universities were fruitful as the scholars could clarify their doubts about university courses coping well with studies and other issues The trip also included visits to two famed art museums the National Gallery of Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art Through the

    the first day of the Forum our students were introduced to the vast and complex world of Mathematical Modelling and applied their knowledge in Mathematics Science and technology to design an appropriate model to find the answer to a real world problem Apart from that the forum included a day s trip to Movie World where students had to collect data while enjoying themselves on the thrilling rides using various tools and methods for their tasks in lieu of a presentation of their findings as well as constructing their model There was also time for fun and games where students engaged in sporting activities a Math Trivia as well as a barbeque dinner hosted by A B Paterson to close the interactive forum After the Forum came the actual Challenge in which students are re categorised into new groups based on their age and school During the Challenge students are posed with a real world problem that they have to solve within 2 days with their new teammates from different Singapore and Australian schools As our students are grouped under the tutelage of different mentors and professors each of us had different tasks to accomplish Some problems given were associated with Hurricane Sandy while others was about the melting of the arctic ice and the construction of an air glider that can stay in the air for the longest time While working together with other students and consulting their mentors from time to time our students sharpened their scientific thinking skills experimental skills and critical thinking skills They also learnt how to plan their own scientific experiments to test their Mathematical models and overcome the problems they faced during these experiments Upon the completion of their Mathematical model students have to communicate their ideas through a presentation Through this students trained their presentation communication and oratorical skills as they explain and justify their experiments Mathematical models and calculations It is to our delight that 5 Dunman High students had won awards for their outstanding performance during the Challenge Nonetheless all the students who participated in this Challenge benefited greatly from this amazing experience and gained a better understanding of Mathematical Modelling To end this wonderful Mathematical Modelling journey A B Paterson College held a scrumptious dinner on a cruise ship on which our students get to forge long lasting friendships with other participants and enjoy the night Teachers and students alike have positive experience Here are some of the students reflections of this trip Going on this trip I wasn t entirely clueless about Mathematical Modelling thanks to the challenge we had internally in June I was all geared up thinking my knowledge on modelling would be sufficient but I was proven entirely wrong Not only do the Australians do Mathematical Modelling in a slightly different way from us they are more advanced in their ways of modelling This trip has allowed me to gain much depth in Mathematics and especially in the area of modelling Mathematics in school has

    lifestyle Provide an avenue for meaningful interaction with their peers so as to promote international friendship and understanding I have benefitted a lot during this 12 day long trip to Taiwan One of them would be a deeper understanding towards Taiwan s culture For example as most of the Taiwanese are Buddhists there are numerous temples with many beautiful sculptures in it Before the trip I would have walked past them without giving them much attention However after this Taiwan trip I now understand the meaning behind some of these sculptures learning better how to appreciate it In addition I learnt some of the rules that we have to abide by when entering a temple This is extremely important as Singapore being a multi racial country has many different religions Buddhism inclusive Hence we should equip ourselves with these basic knowledge We also attended different talks by professors regarding the cross straits relation In our free time we also watched the different news channels and newspapers to get a better understanding of Taiwan s politics as well as how it differs from Singapore Not to forget we also visited the many famous sites in Taiwan such as the Tamsui River where San Domingo is We learnt that even before Taiwan was under Japanese rule the Spanish and the English had resided in Taiwan as well They have left their evidence of their culture there which makes Taiwanese culture even more interesting As Taiwan was under the Japanese rule for 50 years we could see Japanese buildings kept till even today We visited different famous enterprises such as Formosa Plastic Group and Business Weekly We learnt about the many difficulties that they had faced from the start which they had all overcome and managed to achieve their glorious results today Their journeys were rocky but they held on to their beliefs despite the unfavourable conditions These stories have inspired me to stand up and face whatever difficulties ahead of me attaining my goal in the near future The highlight of this trip for me would be the 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan As Singapore is not located near any plate boundaries it is relatively safe from earthquakes Though occasionally affected by slight tremors they are harmless and only felt to a small extent Hence when we saw for ourselves the debris and the collapsed buildings in the museum we were all in shock Hearing of the power of Mother Nature and witnessing it with our own eyes is indeed very much different What s more is that we got a chance to experience how it is to be like caught in an earthquake of magnitude 7 3 in Ritcher Scale We also learned some measures to reduce the damages that earthquakes can bring about Although these may not be applicable to us right now they are still basic knowledge that we should know and they may come in handy in the future In fact one of the most important learning point
