    A monthly newsletter to help you stay in touch with activities at Ascend

    Inspiring and empowering our students to communicate with confidence July 2014

    Graduation day happens at the

    end of every term (3 months)

    and it is always a happy occasion

    for everyone. For most

    students, they get ‘promoted’ to

    the next level or they are ready

    to use their English skills in the

    next part of their lives. For

    others, there is a day of

    socializing and a week long

    holiday to look forward to.

    Whatever it is, graduation day is

    always a day full of smiles,

    pictures and a little too much

    dancing 

    Gardens by the Bay

    Hi everyone, I’m Deny and I come from Indonesia. I’ve been living in Singapore for almost 9

    months. I’d like to share my experience with all of you when I went to ‘Gardens by the Bay’.

    I went there 3 weeks ago and it’s a really great place for me. There are loads of beautiful

    views such as a waterfall, flowers, a lake etc. I took loads of pictures and I also recorded some

    videos. It’s a huge place, so you really need one day to see it properly. Also, you have to wear shoes

    which are comfortable for you because you will feel pain in your feet if you wear something like high


    One of my favourite view is the Supertree Grove because it did make me feel alive. The lights

    are complicated but beautiful and I’m sure you guys will have the same feeling as me if you are there!!

    Apart from that, there are also some songs that are played in

    sync with the lights in order to welcome the audience. I almost

    forgot that it was time to go home when I was watching the light


    You really have to go there and

    check it out for yourself!
