GEST Skills Sharing
GEST Skills Sharing
GEST Skills Sharing is a platform for talented students to showcase their unique ability and share the skills with fellow classmates. GE believes that by supporting students to actively curate and initiate projects, rather than being passive receivers, students can truly learn and flourish.
In this semester, diabolo, embroidery and miniature clay food workshops will be hosted by our talented student hosts! If you are keen on learning somethings special from your fellow schoolmates, act now and register on our GEST Skill Sharing sessions. We look forward to meeting you at GE Gatherland soon!

Cherry Ng (PCLL)

My passion is creating clay miniature food with a realistic touch. It’s a combination of my two favorite things on earth – good food and soft moldable clay (as odd as this sounds)!
