Record Breaking School Event

Ngee Ann Secondary School and Halogen Foundation Singapore’s record breaker with a heart

Congratulations to Ngee Ann Secondary School for their 2nd record breaking this year! Ngee Ann Secondary School and Halogen Foundation Singapore worked together to take up the challenge of breaking the record of “The largest display of origami hearts”.

They broke the record with a 6m by 6m formation of the Merlion with 61,146 origami hearts.

As part of the school’s National Day celebration and annual charity run, students folded paper origami hearts and filled them with positive handwritten messages. Apart from birthday well-wishes to Singapore, messages included those which raised awareness about autism — their chosen cause this year.

Prior to the event, Ngee Ann Secondary School Student Councillors went through The Leadership Challenge® Workshops by Halogen which empowered them to lead this project. They proposed to and persuaded their peers of the idea. Now that’s leadership for a good cause!
