The annual Education and Career Guidance (ECG) Fair was held on 19 May this year for graduating Sec 4 and Sec 5 students. Our students benefitted much from the talks held by various tertiary institutions such as the Polytechnics, ITE and Anglo-Chinese Junior College (ACJC). Speakers from various career industries also gave talks to give our students a glimpse into the nature of the industries and the expectations to be met.
