Holy Innocents’ High School held a carnival on Aug 5 as part of its 125th anniversary celebrations.

Some highlights of the event were carnival rides as well as a dunking machine.

Students particularly enjoyed dunking their teachers and raised money to nominate their favourite teachers for the
game.

Food and drink stalls were manned by Sec 2 students and their form teachers.

Groups such as the Lion Befrienders – a voluntary welfare organisation which cares for the elderly – were invited to join in the school festivities.

Many students volunteered to be chaperones and look after the elderly who turned up. Many family members of students and school staff were also present for the carnival.

On May 20, the school held an outdoor concert at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park as part of its 125th anniversary celebration.

On Dec 28, the school will hold its annual Feast of the Holy Innocents Mass for students and staff. A special gallery, the 125 Heritage Gallery, will be opened as part of the school’s effort to preserve its history and to foster a strong sense of identity among staff, students and alumni.

A reunion dinner will end off the day that will also see the launch of a commemorative magazine in which 125 people related to the school will be featured.
