Pursuing passions beyond the Arts - Kyra Poh

Published on Jul 31, 2019

Some of our students pursue passions beyond the arts and take them to a very high level. Kyra Poh, our Year 5 Visual Arts student first picked up indoor skydiving 8 years ago when it was a little known sport. She and her primary school friend and sky-diving partner Choo Yi Xuan from Singapore Sports School have since represented Singapore and won many accolades at the Wind Games and the FAI World Cup of Indoor Skydiving Championships. The duo clinched their first gold at the Federation Aeronatique International (FAI) World Cup in 2018. They also won a silver medal at the China International Indoor Skydiving Championships.
