Since the start of the BeyondClassrooms Programme in 2021, close to 15 partners (and still counting!) have officially signed up to support us in offering opportunities for our students.

These unique opportunities help our students gain real-world experiences so they can make decisions for their future careers. Once the COVID-19 restrictions were eased in 2022, we fulfilled many activities that had to be put on hold prior, enabling multiple eye-opening experiences and limitless learning for our students from primary to high school. Among these unique experiences were industry talks, internships, site visits, event deployment, career counselling and more.

All these valuable experiences are made possible by our supportive and committed BeyondClassrooms network, whom we are very honoured to collaborate with to continue creating opportunities for our students.

Here’s an overview of what was made possible with our BeyondClassrooms programme in 2022!


Our high school students were invited by urban air mobility pioneer Volocopter to visit their VoloCity exhibition and learn more about their future plans. The highlight of this visit was our students experiencing their VoloCity air taxi, well before its commercial launch slated for 2024.

Our primary school students had a blast at BASF Kids’ Lab at National University of Singapore (NUS). Employees from BASF and student volunteers from NUS’ Department of Food Science & Technology led our kids through eye-opening experiments, unravelling discoveries about nutrition and healthy eating, such as identifying Vitamin C in fruit juices. 

Another group of primary school students visited ALBA W&H Smart City’s waste management depot in Tuas, hosted by our Daimler Commercial Vehicles South East Asia. After being introduced to the concept of waste management in class, they could finally see what happens to our daily waste. They even had a chance to operate and ride behind a garbage truck – to experience the work of many on-ground workers who clean up after us!

Siemens hosted another group of GESS students at their Advanced Manufacturing Transformation Centre (AMTC), located at Tuas. The first of its kind, we had a glimpse at the manufacturing expertise of the hybrid competence centre aimed at supporting companies in Southeast Asia.

A different business nature was presented by State Street Bank and Trust Company, Singapore branch, who hosted our high school students and shared valuable insights on investment management and trading.

Our high school students interested in science and engineering benefitted from our partnership with TÜV SÜD, as they had the chance to visit the company’s new premises and learnt how the company upholds sustainability and safety management.

One of our newer partners onboard, T-Systems Singapore hosted our coding CCA students at their Customer Experience and Security Operations Centres and presented Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its applications to our captivated audience.


We had the pleasure to welcome Professor Raine Dumke from the Centre for Quantum Technologies, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Singapore to our campus. Professor Dumke shared insights on Quantum Computing with our Grade 11 and 12 students, and this was followed by a visit to NTU’s Quantum Laboratory some weeks later.

BMW Group Asia’s Managing Director, Lars Nielsen was another guest speaker who visited our campus to conduct an industry talk on the challenges of globalisation for our Grade 11 and 12 students. This was a very relevant topic for the students who participated enthusiastically in the Q&A segment.
