The huge posters outside, are to highlight students who did well in exams. They go: Kuo Chuan Presbyterian Secondary congratulates so-and-so of x-class for achieving x DISTINCTIONS in 2009 GCE 'O' Level Exam.

Probably looks strange to people in other countries, but perfectly normal here. The names of top scoring students in national exams, are reported on television news broadcasts. There are "No Studying" signs in some places, like Changi Airport, because school students go there after school to study and jam up the place. In Singapore, geeks are cool. Remember Tiger Mom Amy Chua? Now imagine an entire society like her. Maybe not as extreme, but thinking along the same lines.

That's a football (soccer) field in front of the school. You can tell from the goal posts in the center. The tall fence isn't for security. It's to keep the balls in. Singapore is football crazy. Mainly over English Premier League. Even some girls get the fever.
