More information on the CCA

Queenstown Secondary School Concert Band (Quest Band) welcomed 2014 with the Secondary One CCA Open House, where the band members were actively involved in getting the Secondary Ones to join band.

Under the guidance of Mr Jack Lim, Mr Luo and Mr Yam as well as our teachers-in-charge – Ms Azlina, Mr Foong, Ms Liu and Ms Fatimah, our band had a wonderful year. The conductors’ efforts and dedication to the band has brought the band to greater heights! Through the band camp planned by our enthusiastic student leaders, strong bonds were forged between the new members and the main band.

The members do not just play music in the band. With the help from Mr Foong and alumni, they learn self-discipline and team work through foot drills. The thoughtful members show their appreciation to each other, the teachers and conductors through gifts and word of appreciation!

A band exchange was held in the March holidays where students participated in a friendly “inter-section” competition with other secondary schools such as Coral Secondary School. This was a great opportunity for the members to gain confidence and learn about teamwork. To further expose the members to the band music scene, they went to watch the Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) 2014 Arts Presentation for Band (Display) in May 2014.

Quest Band never forgot about our committed Secondary Four and Five members. The current leaders and committee planned an unforgettable investiture day for their graduating seniors. We sincerely thank the seniors for their hard work, commitment and dedication to the band. As the band prepares for the SYF 2015, they will be training hard over the holiday. To further hone the musicality and ignite the passion of band in the students, there will be more band exchanges and a concert is being planned for the end of the year.
