Description of Artwork: Each individual water droplet that makes up the sea represents the fleeting nature of time passing by us. The deeper our bodies are immersed in that time, the artwork portrays the aging and dying of the 'self'. The white fish and jellyfish in the shallower waters are depicted with bright colors to express freedom and vitality. It conveys the meaning that since everyone cannot escape the passage of time and prevent death, we should always live a happy and joyful life.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new gardening program at SSIBC! With spring in full bloom, we believe it's the perfect time to cultivate a love for nature and encourage our students to explore the wonders of gardening. Gardening provides countless benefits to young learners, fostering their connection with the environment and promoting valuable life skills. Through this program, our students will have the opportunity to get their hands dirty, witness the magic of growth, and develop a deeper understanding of where our food comes from. As part of our gardening initiative, we have transformed a dedicated area on our school into a vibrant garden space. Equipped with raised beds, tools, and a variety of seeds and plants, this garden will serve as a living laboratory for our students to engage in hands-on learning experiences. Our dedicated team of teachers and staffs will guide students through various gardening activities, including planting seeds, nurturing plants, and harvesting produce. These activities will not only foster teamwork and cooperation but also instill a sense of responsibility and pride in caring for our shared environment. Through the gardening program, students also can learn about environmental sustainability, healthy eating habits, and the importance of conservation. They will witness firsthand the cycle of life, from planting and nurturing to harvesting and enjoying the fruits of their labor. We encourage parents to get involved by sharing your knowledge, or simply engaging in conversations with your child about their gardening adventures. By working together, we can create a nurturing and educational environment that extends beyond the classroom. We look forward to watching our students' green thumbs flourish as they embark on this exciting gardening journey. Stay tuned for updates, photos, and stories from our garden in our school newsletter and on our website. Thank you for your continued support as we nurture young minds and cultivate a love for nature.
