The inaugural student education programme was launched in 2012 during the 3rd Singapore International Photography Festival, with the aim of raising levels of visual literacy among secondary and tertiary level students. We saw photography as a powerful means of personal expression and empowerment. As a bridge between the arts and sciences, it also had great potential in promoting cross-disciplinary learning.

So far, we have reached out to more than 1,800 students across various schools and institutions including:

Raffles Girls’ School (Secondary)
Raffles Institution
Maris Stella High School
Anglo Chinese School (International)
Swiss Cottage Secondary School
Bendemeer Secondary School
Tanglin Trust School
West Spring Secondary School
Si Ling Secondary School
Dunearn Secondary School
Riverside Secondary School
Opera Estate Primary School
Crescent Girls’ School
Gan Eng Seng School
