Dear teachers-in-charge,

Thank you for guiding your students on this meaningful project.

We are pleased to share with you that we have received many good quality submissions this year, with works demonstrating a good mastery of both technical and story-telling skills. Some of the videos also promoted meaningful civic engagement, as there were also several videos which garnered many votes and insightful comments from the audience. We are also pleased to see that through the Voice Up! Challenge, the students had the opportunities and platform to reflect and discuss on the social or national issues that are close to their heart as well as the feelings and ties that they have for Singapore.

This is the story of a young Singaporean Man who leads a life ruled by routine, work and his desire to succeed no matter what. His next door neighbors; a middle aged couple and their kid, painfully reminds him of his meaningless existence, though he tries to deny it. Work continues to be the same, trying to get that promotion he wanted on the first day of the job. With each passing year, he notices the boy getting older and the father’s health slowly deteriorating as he drives past them on the way to work. Until one day, he succumbs to his ailments. Feeling empathy for the boy since he can’t imagine living his life without his dad, he breaks out of his comfort zone and does something that will change his and the boy’s life forever.

The video intends to pass down the message of the fast-paced growth of Singapore, leading to its economical, social development, while at the same time, showing the bond between a father and son improved. In the video, it shows a young boy and his father who love spending time with each other more and more each time. Singapore has just started industrializing. While taking a trishaw home, it surprisingly breaks down, forcing them down the ride. However, the son was stubborn and did not obey his father, forcing them to push him all the way home. As their bonds grew, and rapid advancement in Singapore took place, the son began to learn new things like cycling from his father. Soon after he graduated, earned himself a motorbike. Together as father and son, they took one of their most memorable moments, the son’s convocation. Progressing on, as the economy continued to improve the son even afforded a car. When he wanted to drive his father for dinner, his car unexpectedly breaks down. Ingenuinely, the father thought of cycling to their destination. Cycling into the sunset, they relieved the good times they had had as father and son. Their bond never wavers nor change as Singapore continues to progress on wheels to further development, so did their relationship.

Home is a place where memories and loved ones are found. Toa Payoh, Singapore’s first satellite town, is a home to many people who have built relationships within this closely-knitted community. Why do residents who have lived here for many years still consider this place as their home?Our school, being the first secondary school in Toa Payoh, intrigued us to produce this documentary. But Toa Payoh is only one of the many districts in Singapore. As a whole, Singapore is home to many people who have contributed to it. Where is the place you call home?

Places I Call Home - Hawker Center
Produced by Lai Si Min, Muhd Khairul Sabir, Heng Chuan Song, Leow Chun Kiat & Lim Jin Feng

Our video is about hawker centers and its significances as a national treasure. It is easily recognizable as a Singaporean establishment that hold a unique place in our hearts.The hawker centre is one of the most important institutions in our Singaporean culture. It is a common space that Singaporeans congregate at to enjoy meals and spend time with friends and family. In a country distinctively multi-racial, the hawker centre becomes an interesting hodgepodge of culinary mix not usually seen in many other countries around the world.In our video, we show how our multi-racial society all comes together at the hawker centre every day to have something as simple as having a meal yet it helps us unite our social harmony so much more. We show how our hawker centre is an important part of lives, our childhood, and our Singaporean identity. Our narration covers the technical side of hawker centers in our lives, yet we show how it helps us Singaporeans born together as a family, as friends, and ultimately, a nation.We hope that this video will impart our message of home, belonging, and appreciation to the audience. Hawker centers have been around for decades and it is only becoming bigger part of our home as the days go by.
