Welcome Back! 1st Announcement for the year 2016!

Dear Parents, Guardians, boys and girls,

hope that all of you had a wonderful holiday and are ready to embark onto the new year!

For the year 2016, there are a few changes made in Choir.

For Choir this year, we would like to introduce to you our new Choir teacher-in-charge, Mr Kee Loi Seng.


Assisting him will be 2 other teachers: Mrs Tong, who was away last year and Miss Wen Caizhuang.

On the first day of school (4 Jan, Mon),  our choir members will receive a consent form for the activities that will be taking place in Week 1 and 2.


Our pupils will need to stay back in school the next day, Tue, 5 Jan, 1.45pm - 3.45pm.

Our pupils will be having a new choir uniform. Arrangement has been made for tailors to come and take pupils’ measurement on 5 Jan, Tuesday (the next day). 

Do make appropriate transportation arrangements for that day.


Our pupils will also be taking part in the SYF 2016 competition which will take place in April 2016 (after which P6 members will stand down from CCA).     

                                                                   
Hence, in order to prepare our pupils for this competition, there will be at least 2 choir practice sessions per week.

For Term 1, our Choir practices will take place:
Every Monday, 3.30pm – 5.30pm  
(There are no school bus services. Please make other transportation arrangement)

Every Tue, 1.45pm – 3.45pm


A list of dates for our other practices will be issued out later.



We look forward to see you next year!

Sing50 on 7 Aug



The teachers in Endeavour are very blessed to have very supportive parents for allowing their children to participate in this once in a lifetime event. I believe Edp choir pupils have had an enriching and great exposure during the event. It was very memorable and the pupils were very resilient to having gone through the tough times at the National Stadium and able to stay awake till very late at night on those two days. Well done, Edp Choir!

Each performer will be given 2 complimentary tickets to the concert (organiser has not stated when they will be giving out the tickets).

However do note that the tickets purchased will not be seated together with the complimentary tickets given as the tickets are released at different blocks.

I understand that most parents are concerned about the timing especially for 6 and 7 August as pupils will reach school very late.

Dear Parents/Guardian, boys and girls,

As mentioned during Choir practice today, 21/7, I will be re-uploading all the 10 songs for the Sing50 Performance.

Please ignore the previous versions of the 10 songs as there is a technical problem in the songs.

For the Finale, the version that is uploaded has only the melody. Please listen to it and familiarize yourself with the melody first.

**Important Note:
Please focus on the Girl's Voice part only. 


Our 1st rehearsal will be this Sat, 25/7 at Tanglin Trust School. (Please refer to letter given out today,21/7)

We were just informed by the Sing50 organiser that there is no need for pupils to memorise all the 10 songs.
They are allowed to bring their music songsheets along with them during the performance.

As a standardisation for all the participating schools ( about 1000 pupils' choir), the pupils will need to use a black pocket file to store their songsheets, 1 pocket for 1 page for easy flipping.

Pupils will be required to have their black file ready on the actual day of the performance, 7 Aug, Friday.

Below are the 10 songs for the Sing50 Performance.

Community Service at SWAMi 22 May 2015

Our EDP Choir has reached out to our community and put up a performance for the elderly residents at SWAMI Nursing Home (For the Aged) on 22 May 2015. 


This is a community outreach programme that allows pupils to show empathy, respect and concern towards others, contribute to the community and learn to put others before self. Through the interactions with the elderly, we hope to bridge the intergenerational gap between the young and the old, and to improve perceptions and attitudes towards ageing and seniors. At the same time, it is also a platform for our singing angels to showcase their singing talents to the elderly residents at the home.

 A total of 53 Choir pupils (p2-6) sang 3 songs at the SWAMI Home. 



Pupils were doing reflections in groups. They were very eager to share their experiences with one another. 



Beautiful and interesting reflections done by the pupils.
