The event served as a platform for AES students to apply their classroom learning and promote entrepreneurship skills, as they designed, pitched sales and managed stalls by themselves.
All sales proceeds from the event went to the school’s upgrading project under the School Upgrading Programme or PRIME.
Pastry chef, Mr Jimmy Kea, was amongst a group of chef volunteers who offered to help in the event. Besides actively arranging for event partners, Mr Kea also offered his expertise in baking and cake decoration.
“It has been a wonderful experience working together with the staff and students of Assumption English School. Everyone is devoted to the mission of running the event well,” Mr Kea said.
Mrs Mabel Leong, Principal of Assumption English School said, “we are grateful for the many kind souls who have stepped forward to help make this event a success, and a memorable one for our students and visitors.”
Other sponsors included Furama City Centre, Singapore, BreadTalk, Yeos and Pokka.
Assumption English School was founded in 1953 by the Montfort Brothers of St Gabriel. The school, together with Assumption Pathway School and Boys’ Town Home, form the three components of Boys’ Town.
The school will return to its Upper Bukit Timah campus in December 2015.
