1924 - 2016 

With fondest memories, we share a few photos in tribute to Singapore's President SR Nathan for his unforgettable visit to Commonwealth Secondary School to grace our President's Challenge 2003 ~ CWSS Charity Events!

One of which was our School's Art Shop, pioneered by the Art Club with yearly fund raising for Society For the Physically Disabled which was launched by the President SR Nathan on 29 August 2003.
President SR Nathan launched our Art Shop ~ signing the Istana Umbrella winning design by our student Jane Chang.

The President signing our School's Guest Book and behind him is the Art Shop launched to sell artworks made by students for Charity!

A view of the Art Shop Booth @it's Launch and a catalogue of items put up on sale for the charity we had adopted: 
SPD/Society for the Physically Disabled! 

Delightfully handmade artworks, made out of LOVE were snapped up for charity!

The Art Club Team who pioneered of the ArtShop!
 These were our lower secondary students!

Art Shop Motto:Where Dreams Never Cease!
 Ever With The Best!
