Let’s learn more about these Graingoli art pieces contributed by our creative Innovians !

Class 1021A - Sail Singapore:

Class 1021A - Sail Singapore Our main design is based on a sailboat, with our unique Merlion as the figurehead of our ship. The awe-inspiring nature of the figurehead symbolises our strong determination to succeed and to achieve excellence! The protruding cannons from the sides represent our nation’s capability to defend ourselves from all threats. We must ourselves defend Singapore to safeguard our family and our future!

Class 1021A - Sail Singapore:

Class 1021A - Sail Singapore The most prominent section is the sail, which is made up of a combination of fabrics representing different races in Singapore – the Malays, the Indians and the Chinese. The amalgamation of these fabrics symbolises our intrinsic bond between different races, which is the strength of our social fabric. With Deepavali and Hari Raya round the corner, the sail also represents our acceptance and respect for the different races and cultures in Singapore, and that we may enjoy racial harmony. The use of sago seeds lining the border of the sail represents the unbreakable bond uniting Singaporeans!

Class 1021A - Sail Singapore:

Class 1021A - Sail Singapore In a nutshell, the sailboat symbolises our nation – a vessel with groups of people from different races on board, working alongside one another to move forward together. This deeply reflects our Singapore Spirit, and together as a nation, Majulah Singapura! The border of our designs comprises of post-its penned by all of us from 1021A, to wish Singapore a Happy 46th National Day!

Class 1012A – Singapore Heartbeat :

Class 1012A – Singapore Heartbeat The main features in this portrait are: -The Singapore island outline overlapped by big & generous heart. -The background formed by numerous magazine pieces, representing the diverse cultures in Singapore.

Class 1012A – Singapore Heartbeat :

Class 1012A – Singapore Heartbeat The heart over the island depicts the compassion of Singaporeans reaching out to fellow Singaporeans and beyond. It reminds us of our continuous effort to help other countries. The border of the island is aligned by beans, symbolising medical aid and food supplies to countries in their times of need. The various spots of red with different tones represent the various charitable organisations in Singapore radiating with love and compassion for everyone in Singapore. Majulah! Our Singapore Spirit!

Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!:

Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit! National day is one of the most important days for the patriotic Singaporeans. Many people would think that being ‘kiasu’ (afraid of losing) or ‘kiasi’ (afraid of dying) is the Singapore spirit. However, in our opinion, that is not exactly so.  Being ‘kiasu’, it makes us competitive, and being ‘kiasi’, it makes us more meticulous in the way we handle any situations.

Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!:

Hence, because of these two components, Singaporeans are perceived to be competent in being able to stand strong against adversities! Singapore is a multi-cultural and multi-religious nation. However, that is not what makes us unique. It is the fact that all Singaporeans, despite the differences, are able to live together in peace and harmony in this small island that makes us really special. Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!

Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!:

Not just knowing the differences, but being able to appreciate each other and embrace the differences. This is Our Singaporean spirit! In our Graingoli design, we aim to bring out this very spirit of Singaporeans. Our design comprises of a Singapore map showing some of the famous places in Singapore such as Kampong Glam, Chinatown and Little India. These are the places where the Muslims, Chinese and the Indians once stayed. Hence if people wish to find out more about the races and cultures in Singapore, these are the places they can never miss out! Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!

Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!:

Our design also includes symbolic items such as ketupats and Indian oil lamp. Seeing the aforementioned, people will associate them to none other than Hari Raya and Depavali. Ketupat in the Javanese language is called kupat, meaning to admit a wrongdoing. Hence, the tradition is to confess one’s sins to other people and in general, it is a tradition of mutual forgiveness. On the other hand, the Indian oil lamp is burned throughout the day and into the night during Deepavali to ward off darkness and evil. Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!

Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!:

By including the various places of interest and symbolic items in a small island, we are hoping to portray the idea of acceptance and appreciation of the differences among the different races and religion, bringing out OUR TRUE SINGAPORE SPIRIT!!! Class 1011B – Our Singapore Spirit!

Class 1011C – SMRT! Success My Route There:

Class 1011C – SMRT! Success My Route There ‘Majulah’ means ONWARD and it is signified in our Graingoli display on the different destinations we want to head to after our A levels being NUS, NTU, SMU, SUTD and SIM. The green and red beans in the cupcake holder represent the spirit of HariRaya and Deepavali and how Singapore is a diverse country where racial harmony is a key focus.

Class 1011C – SMRT! Success My Route There:

Our Graingoli display is the creation of our MRT lines showing how integrated and connected we are. The upgrading of the construction of MRT lines like the Circle Line shows how Singaporeans look ahead and aim for greater excellence. That is the ‘’The Singapore Spirit’’. Class 1011C – SMRT! Success My Route There

1026A - Socially Cohesive Singapore:

1026A - Socially Cohesive Singapore The choice for 1026A’s design is based on the social cohesiveness of the Singapore’s society. The celebration of the nation’s birthday is also a celebration of the racial and religious harmony that we have enjoyed thus far. The ‘Majulah’ spirit encompasses racial tolerance and acceptance of the myriad and diversity of cultures in Singapore.

1026A - Socially Cohesive Singapore:

The fiery design of the Merlion’s mane is to symbolize the vibrant spirit that Singaporeans hold towards the drive towards economic progress and prosperity. The broadness of the Merlion’s chest, henna design and ketupat are to signify the benevolence and openness that Singaporeans hold towards other compatriots of different races. 1026A - Socially Cohesive Singapore

1026A - Socially Cohesive Singapore:

There is a special focus on the icons symbolic of 2 local festivities : Deepavali and Hari Raya (“DeepaRaya”). The ball of wool used to weave the Merlion represents the intricate weaving of the Singapore’s social fabric. The tide that the Merlion is cruising on represents that whatever challenging situations that Singapore faces with, Singaporeans will capitalize on the situation and steer ONWARD bravely! 1026A - Socially Cohesive Singapore
