MI Alumni Academic Achievements

The month of July has been a season of university graduation and commencement ceremonies.  We are pleased to share the following achievements by some of our alumni who are among this year’s university graduates.  Through their hard work and perseverance, these alumni exemplify all of our Institute’s Core Values of Respect, Resilience, Responsibility and Integrity. 

Muhammad Nadzir Azmi (06S2) – 1st Class Honours 

Nadzir is one of  10 Malay/Muslim students who have been awarded First Class Honours degrees from NTU this year.  He majored in Computer Engineering at NTU from 2011 to 2015.  His path to a university degree has not been a completely smooth one.  After his O-Levels, Nadzir studied for a year at a junior college before transferring to MI to re-start his A-Level education all over again.  Despite these setbacks, Nadzir persevered and his hard work eventually won him a place at NTU.  The national Malay newspaper, Berita Harian, picked up Nadzir’s story recently and you can read the full news feature by following this link:

Maybellina Lim Hui Ying (07A3) – Teaching Award Winner

Maybellina has aspired to be a teacher since her student days at MI.  After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications at NTU this year,  Maybellina has now secured a Ministry of Education Teaching Award to train to become a teacher under NIE’s Postgraduate Diploma in Education programme. Maybellina thanks her alma mater, Millennia Institute, for nurturing and inspiring her to be a teacher. 



Ong Bee Hui (08B3) and Jonathan Liautrakul (06A2) - MI's First 2 NUS USP Scholar Graduates

We are also glad to share good news about two of our Alumni - Ong Bee Hui (08B3) and Jonathan Liautrakul (06A1) – who have just graduated from the prestigious NUS University Scholars Programme (USP).   The USP is a multidisciplinary and partially residential, degree programme for NUS undergraduates.  Each year, fewer than 200 undergraduates succeed in joining this community of exceptional students.  Bee Hui graduated with Honours in Business Administration (Accountancy) and is currently working with the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Jonathan graduated with Honours in History and has plans to have a career in civil service where he hopes that he can put the knowledge and skills garnered in his varsity days to good use. 

The MI Family congratulates them and wishes them all the best in their careers.

Project Give: Hari Raya Puasa Hamper

This Hari Raya, students of Millennia Institute successfully completed Project Give: Hari Raya Puasa Hamper. 30 students helped to wrap the hampers and total of 55 hampers were made for the needy families. The purpose of this project was three-fold, first to provide an opportunity for staff and students to contribute to the community, second to encourage the spirit of giving and to take action to make a small impact to others and third to share the festivities with the needy. This project was done in collaboration with Realm of Tranquility, a welfare organisation that provides voluntary services to the less fortunate. 




'In blackest day, In brightest night' - MI Art student's work exhibited at AMK Public Library

We are pleased to share that one of our Art students, Javier Lim Yi Rong(15A3) will be exhibiting his photography series 'In blackest day, In brightest night' at Ang Mo Kio Public Library from 3 July to 30 July as part of Junior Shooting Home 2015 programme organised by Objectifs.

Junior Shooting Home is an annual photography mentorship programme, targeted at the developing talented young photographers in Singapore.  Every year, ten students will be selected from schools around Singapore through their portfolio submission to be mentored by professional photographers.  With 'Shooting home' as a central theme, participants drew inspiration from their existing environment and ultimately contribute to 'home' and the local arts scene.   


MI in the News - Sprint King Haikal

We are pleased to share that Muhammad Haikal bin Ismail (13B4) was featured in The New Paper on 9 July, as a nominee of The New Paper School Sports Star Award

In the article, Haikal shared his experience and feelings as the sole representative from MI at the 'A' Division Track and Field events, and how he overcame the odds to clinch the top positons in both 100 m and 200 m events. This is an unprecedented achievement for MI.  While we all celebrate Haikal's stellar performance, we also commend him on the effort he has put into his training and his spirit of resilience in striving for the best.

Dear Parents and students of MI,

Pls note that the Institute shall assemble at 0755 Hours for all school days, starting on 05/01/2015. 

Our young artists and their achievements!

 Millennia Institute has once again shown that we are a school that nurtures a climate that holistically develops our students. In 2014, our Arts students did the school proud after their art works were chosen to be exhibited and used in a number of events,


    First, our students have proven that MI is a place where students are talented, not just academically but also aesthetically. 11A1's Clara Cheong Yu Zhen received a Certificate of Recognition in this year's SYF 2014 Art Exhibition after she conceptualised a stunning art piece that unites the ethereal nature of philosophy and the transcendent nature of art. Her artwork entitled 'Plato's Aquarium', was inspired by the allegory of Plato's cave. It an an examination and exploration of human perception and our inner worlds. This work explores on the idea of humans as prisoners and it is impossible to for us to break out of this self created world. With the use of multiple layers and water as metaphor, this work expresses how we co-exist in this complex, fluid, chaotic yet isolated world. It was exhibited at LASALLE with the other shortlisted artworks and featured in the catalogue.

Listen to Clara introduce her artwork by clicking on this youtube link:



2) PAssion Arts Festival 2014 - Top 10 Works of Wonder Award.

Furthermore, our students showed that beyond individual accomplisments, they are able to be leaders and thinkers when our MI Art Club spearheaded a community art sculpture project called Ties That Bind - Places, Faces and Memories. In collaboration with Hong Kah North Community Arts and Culture Club, artist Terence Lin, Jurong West Sec and Westwood Sec, the Art Club created a unique piece of art that is both elegant and meaningful. The sculpture was exhibited at the "Singapore W.O.W” ! A Visual Arts Exhibition on the 16-17 Aug at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza.





3) Singapore Kindness Movement - Concept Train Design Competition


Finally, beyond working with youths, our students show that they are citizens that are concerned with larger social movements that are critical to Singaore. 3 students from the Art Club have been selected by the Singapore Kindness Movement and SMRT for their contribution to promoting kindness in train stations and their designs will be adapted to be featured and credited on the MRT in September 2014. The artwork will be displayed in train cabins so keep your eyes peeled for this wonderful piece of work!


The students are:

 Lim Kun Yi (14S2), for his concept of "Kindness is in our DNA".                                                                

 Liyana Kaiyisah (14S3), for her concept of "Kindness starts with K".


 Loke Mun Mun (13A2), for her concept of "Kindness Grows From Within".                  


2014 YMCA MSA Silver Award

The 8th Mandarin Speaking Awards (MSA), held in April this year, was jointly organised by the Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), Ministry of Education, and Promote Mandarin Council.  The objectives of the YMCA MSA are to improve communication skills and build self-confidence among Youth in the use of Mandarin. 

Our students Chen Yizhao (14B7) and Chu Maojun (13S5) participated in the competition and won the Silver Award. 

Congratulations to Yizhao and Maojun for their achievement. 

938LIVE Campus Talk Show@Millennia Institute


Radio 938LIVE visited Millennia Institute on the 15th of August to discuss the topic "What is the role Youth play in nation building? How can Youth of today contribute to our country?"  

About 60 students from PU1 and 2 participated in the CAMPUS Radio Talk Show, which aims to feature the voices of youths on pertinent issues concerning them.  Sitting in the panel were Professor Kevin Y L Tan, Adjunct Professor at the NUS Faculty of Law, our alumni Mr Ng Bin Hong who has graduated from NUS Law school this year and is a REACH-NUS Ambassador, teacher representative Ms Nuradilah Binte Ramlan who teaches History and is also teacher-in-charge of the Institute’s National Education Council, and a student representative, Tessa Nah Yin Yin, who is a PU2 student.    In the hour long broadcast, both students and panel speakers aired their views on the importance of nation-building programmes, policies and initiatives. Top down approaches were challenged while grassroot movements promoting national identity were given rousing support. This discussion allowed students to remodel existing paradigms of nationhood and weaved disparate threads of ideas into a cogent tapestry of knowledge.

Hui ChenThe Institute congratulates Ms See Hui Zhen who is an awardee of the Inspiring Chinese Language Teachers Award this year.  The award ceremony was held on 11 June, 2014.  

In an interview with Lian He Zao Bao, Ms See said that, “An increasing number of students come from English-speaking families; some do not have a good grasp of the language, some are not interested in it.  This is a challenge to me as a teacher, but I choose to look at it positively - this motivates me to teach creatively.”(translated)

Gracious Millennians Endorsed by the Public

Recently, the Institute had the pleasure of receiving letters from members of the public who were heartened to witness gracious behaviour exhibited by Millennians.

In one of these letters, Ms Mary Tan highlighted the helpful behaviour of Elean Ng (12S2) at a food court, who took the initiative to help Ms Tan with her food order upon seeing her difficulty with hand-carry load.

In another letter, Mr Gary Cooper applauded the empathy and sportsmanship displayed by members of the Millennian football team when a member of the opposing team suffered injury. He witnessed how our boys carried the injured student off the pitch and how the MI teacher also pitched in to help. Mr Cooper cited these acts as evidence of 'true values of sportsmanship and respect that have been excellently portrayed by [the MI] students'.

May these letters, which were shared with Millennians during morning assembly on 14th March, encourage and inspire us all to continue as civic minded ambassadors of the Institute.
