It is Singapore’s National Day again.
I remember during my primary and secondary school times, we used to receive memorabilia during the National Days. Each student would receive a small item that marked the annual joyous celebration. The memorabilia ranged from pens, pencil cases and staplers to bookmarks and coin pouches.
Other than the National Days, we were given memorabilia during the Children’s Days and Family Sports Days. Most of the memorabilia were sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Singapore Sports Council and the Community Chest.
Do you still keep these old school memorabilia given to you during your study days?

These were always something to look forward to. I still keep some of the more useful ones, like a A3 clear folder given by my primary school!
thank for sharing.
Though i did not go to school in Singapore, I still keep and cherish the red leather bookmark commemorating 25th anniversary of Singapore!
Thanks for sharing, it did bring back lots of memories for me.
The ergonomically-challenged pen looked familiar to me. My school used the same one. Must be the in-thing then.
Chong Li and Anderson…you must be a long time Ang Mo Kio resident! So am I and I was formerly from Chong Boon. I fondly remember these stuff given by the school.
I used to stay in AMK back then too. Was from Anderson too…. 1987-1990. Was in AMK North Pri from 1981-1986.
