Ever wanted to see what goes on in a production line?
Well, the interns at the Culture and Education Department got a taste of what it was like, having to pack envelope after envelope of pamphlets and booklets for the World Cultural Village Brief which was held at Republic Poly last Thursday, 9 April.
Wondering where all this hard work goes to?
See what it was like when Siglap Secondary, St. Joseph Convent and Bukit Panjang High showed us what they learnt about their twinned country.

Have you met Blobby?
He is SYOGOC’s newest face for the CAN! Festivals. He made his first appearance along Orchard Road on Sat and Sun and he either scared the guts out of the unsuspecting shoppers or became their new best friends.
CAN! Discover, the first of the quarterly CAN! Festivals, will be starting on 18 April at SCAPE and you’ll be seeing much more of Blobby then!

Judging by deed count, the world is becoming a nicer place to live in.
Numbers of good deeds posted on the Million Deeds Challenge web portal are increasing steadily since its launch, and so are the number of visitors.
Over the past week,
there have been 4164 total deeds posted (that’s almost 3 times the previous week!),
10,301 visits to the page,
and visitors from 69 countries the world over!
The Million Deeds Challenge aims to educate youths on the three Olympic Values of Excellence, Respect, and Friendship, and celebrate the spirit of Olympism,
Like how these girls have learnt in school here.
So, please don’t spam and post silly “deeds” like, “I help my mother beat up my sister” or “I kill my friend”. They’re actually pretty horrible to read.
The Million Deeds challenge is not a chat room either, by the way.
Right now, the virtual Olympic Torch has been through Romania, and is about to cross over to Hungary. There’s still a long way before the torch leaves Europe, so keep those good deeds coming in!
Even schools are getting their students to take part, like this one.
