Community Outreach

The biennial ITE Fiesta was first introduced in 2011. It seeks to showcase ITE’s capabilities and uniqueness in providing quality career and technical education. This Signature event is rotated among the three ITE Colleges, and is a community outreach initiative to let residents who live near the Colleges and members of the public discover ITE, and gain a deeper understanding on the value of applied skills and skills careers.

The seventh edition of the Fiesta adopted the theme of ‘Learn Something New’. It was held on Sunday, 28 July 2019 at ITE College West. It aimed to inform the public of the programmes and authentic learning environment in ITE through activities that cater to the whole family – from exciting games, hands-on demonstrations and informative workshops to energetic student performances and more.

The Guest-of-Honour (GOH) was Mr Gan Kim Yong, Minister for Health and the Grassroots Adviser to Chua Chu Kang (CCK) GRC. He was accompanied by Special Guests, Dr Amy Khor, Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Health & Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, Grassroots Adviser for Hong Kah North Single Member Constituency (SMC), Vice-Chairman of Chua Chu Kang Town Council; and Ms Low Yen Ling, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Education & Ministry of Manpower, Grassroots Adviser to CCK GRC (Bukit Gombak) and Mayor, South West District. They visited selected activities in the Fiesta (see Annex A).

Collaboration with Agencies

ITE Fiesta is also an event that provides a platform for collaborations with external agencies. For instance, ITE students teamed up with elderly participants from the Council for Third Age and guided them to create digital albums and tote bags, and introduced eco-green initiatives such as hydroponics farming to them.

To encourage early detection of any disease or health disorder, the Agency for Integrated Care conducted health screenings on vision, hearing and oral health for seniors aged 60 and above. The public was also taught to stay active through SportSG’s Active Health’s sharing on simple exercise routines. Sporting action was at its peak during the Finals of the ‘GetActive! Singapore-Pesta Sukan Flying Disc tournament 2019’ held at the Sports Complex. Not only did ITE’s Sport Management students organise the event with SportSG staff, Team ITE also sent three teams to compete in this tournament. The public enjoyed finger-smacking delicacies from food trucks by Old Chang Kee, Sawadee Cup and the Nestle Milo van, as well as the hipster burger joint owned by ITE alumni, Burg’s by Project Warung.

Learn Something New

A total of 24 innovative projects (see Annex B) was on display at the ‘Skills Hub’ in the Indoor Sports Hall. They were categorised into four main clusters – Applied Health Science & Digital Media, Business & Hospitality, Electronics & InfoComm Technology, and Engineering. The projects showcased at the Hub included interactive elements to encourage learning and engagement. 

At ITE Fiesta 2019, everyone learnt something new, be it picking up a new hobby or tips on home improvement or increasing wellness knowledge, to bonding through parent-child activities. There was a total of 24 free workshops (Refer to https://issuu.com/itespore/docs/ite_fiesta_2019) opened to the public. These workshops acted as taster sessions to the wide array of related courses offered by ITE.
