Senior Middle Three student Mandy Sim Pei Yin said, “The exhibition has allowed me to reevaluate the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); I should start acting to make the world a better place.” Kenny Hon Jing Hui, also from the same grade, stated, “The SDGs are closely related to our lives, hence we must put in efforts for the benefit of the next generation; Besides taking actions on my own, I will also spread the importance of SDGs to the people around me.”
