What’s been happening at Singapore National Academy?

Our school term and the first semester is drawing to a close.
Exams are completed and have been marked. They’ll be a few disappointments, and a few sighs of relief. In general the results are what was expected.

Have a great holiday
Be safe

All the best, Wayne
