International Young Reporters for the Environment (YRE) Competition 2020
The International YRE Competition is organised through the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) with the objective of providing a platform for young people to articulate their stand on environmental issues they feel strongly about.

The two schools shared and learnt from each other about sustainability issues and greening strategies.

KCPPS Alumni’s Achievements
We are proud of our Alumni Lieutenant (LTA) Christabel Chai from the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). She was featured in the media recently for being the first woman from South-east Asia to graduate from US Air Force Academy (USAFA). Every year, graduating international cadets at the USAFA are honoured at the prestigious institution's graduation ceremony, where they get the chance to fly their country's flag. Last month, Christabel was one of them. Leaping onto her chair, she unfurled the Singapore flag and waved it with her arms spread wide, beaming with joy and pride in a photo that has gone viral on Facebook.
We received delightful news from St. Joseph's Institution (SJI) that our alumni have achieved excellent results at the International Baccalaureate Diploma and GCE ‘O’ Level examinations.
