“Why is HealthTech a big thing?

As the population of elderly increases, access to quick medical diagnoses and treatments is crucial to treat diseases early during their onset. For one, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) as a diagnostic aid could alleviate burdens on healthcare staff, free up time for more doctor-patient interactions and allow prognoses to be produced more efficiently.”

Under the Humanitarian Education Programme, all Year 5s embark on 6-month-long projects that seek to contribute and serve the needs of various sectors in the community.

One such project undertaken this year was in collaboration with Loving Hearts Multi-Service Centre, where our students reached out to underprivileged children in the areas of science, english and computing. “One thing I greatly admired was the children’s undying optimism and resilience. No matter how many times they failed, they never gave up.” shares Hong Meng, one of the NUS High students involved in the project. Read the article for a fuller glimpse of the journey that Hong Meng and his friends undertook.

The enriching experience has touched the lives of the beneficiaries, but our students as well.

We would like to thank Temasek Foundation for their support in the programme.

The Sustainable Development Youth Convention (SDYC) is a 3-day Model United Nations (MUN) conference organised by the Humanities Interest Group of NUS High School. SDYC 2019 took place from 23—25 August, and is especially significant since it is the 10th anniversary of hosting the conference by the students, for the students.

During the three days, delegates partook in rigorous discussions on sustainable development, toured the NUS High’s specialised laboratories, engaged in hands-on environmental science activities and most importantly, forged friendships with one another.

Indeed, SDYC is a conference that marries the disciplines of the arts and the sciences, and reflects NUS High students’ passion in advocating sustainable development through critical analysis and scientific methods.
