Since 1987, Tru-Marine has been supporting young talent development through partnerships with various education institutions to present scholarship, internship and learning workshop opportunities.

This year, Tru-Marine proudly presents a select collection of scrapped turbine blades designed and hand painted by the students of School of the Arts for the Creativity, Action, Service module of their International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, under the mentorship of Ms Cynthia Chang (Faculty of Creativity, Action, Service) and Mr Yap Kheng Kin (Faculty of Visual Arts).

The scrapped blades took on new purpose with the students’ artistic interpretations of the theme Flight and Flow, set against backdrops created by light painting.
