Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage

How would you keep yourself anchored in difficult situations, and stay true to who you are?

Jade lives in a loveless and joyless world. One day, she meets a girl who is lost. Going out of her way to help Andrea, Jade unknowingly embarks on a quest for her heritage. In her adventures with Andrea, she learns about the Peranakan culture and heritage. Most importantly, she experiences friendship and family love.

Jade’s Quest for Her Heritage is a heartwarming story of sincerity, courage, generosity and service.  Cleverly weaving life lessons in the adventures of the two protagonists, Jade’s Quest is truly a delightful read for all ages.  With a captivating storyline and beautifully detailed illustrations, the book invites one to return to it again and again, to uncover yet new insights and visual treats.

We are very pleased to introduce the first illustrated storybook published by the school. Commissioned for the celebration of SCGS’ 120th Anniversary and the commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial, this limited-edition watercolour illustrated book was written for our Primary Division girls by Pauline Loh and illustrated by Heng Li Ching, both of whom are SCGS alumnae. The story line was also contributed to by our Secondary Division girls.
