Other than preparing ourselves for the biyearly SYF, the band plays for school functions and events held around the estate of Tampines as well as at other external functions. This gives ample opportunities for the band members to enjoy themselves making music for others. As the year progresses, there will be more public performances and an end-of-year band camp. This band camp is a much-awaited annual event. The members get to stay over in school, practicing and playing together. They are also motivated by the presence of many alumni members who make their annual pilgrimage back to their old school.
Besides allowing our members to experience the joy of learning and playing music, the teachers-in-charge of the band as well as our dedicated instructors prioritize character development in our children. We pick out teachable moments during our practices to emphasise our school core values of Modesty, Integrity, Loyalty and Excellence.
As we continue to grow in strength and spirit, we look forward to more good years of music appreciation and performance.
Event write-up on
School Band Exchange 2018 @ Poi Ching School
On 10th March 2018, our Poi Ching School Brass Band organised the school band exchange on a Saturday morning, where we had the honour to invite Punggol Primary School and Zhenghua Primary School to showcase their band members’ talents / skills at our school hall. It is our first school band exchange this year, as other band teachers had also organised band exchanges in the previous years. This band exchange is a vital platform not just to showcase our band members’ talents / skills, but the invaluable experience and exposure gained from learning and playing with other schools’ bands in this meaningful event.
We had two of our band members, Tabitha and Hilary to host this event as emcees, where they briefly introduced the participating school bands before their formal showcases on the school hall stage. Under the steadfast guidance of our band conductor Mr Aw, our band serenaded the audiences with the SYF set piece ‘Dare To Dream’ and their choice piece ‘Tempest’. The audiences enjoyed our band’s showcase very much. At the end of all band performances, the respective band conductors from both schools were all presented a certificate of appreciation and and a plush bear token by our PCS Brass Band OIC Mdm Suryana to commemorate this wonderful event. Our band members also shared group photo shots and hand-made personal SYF well-wishes cards with both schools’ band members during the informal interaction time.
During the finale, the three schools combined together to give a spirited, arousing performance of the SYF set piece ‘Dare To Dream’ at the hall stage, under the steadfast batonship of our band conductor Mr Aw. In conclusion, our band members have benefitted from the exposure of performing in a band exchange and they really enjoyed this wonderful and fulfilling experience altogether.

Performance at Tampines Hub – 1st April 2017
Attendance at Band
Please be informed that attendance for all scheduled practices/performances is required. This is a fundamental and integral part of your child’s membership in Band. Band performances are a public demonstration of what has been learned in Band. Because the Band is more than just a collection of individual performers, it is necessary that we rehearse and perform as a unified group. Problems with individual attendance at performances seriously limits our ability to be consistent and strive for excellence.
In the case of student absence, early pickup or late arrival, a Parent or Guardian must notify the Band OIC (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance or submit a letter within two weeks.
More information on attendance could be found on the following website:
