Commemorative magazine published for Kiau Nam School’s fund-raising show

This is a commemorative magazine given out at the show held at the Happy World stadium by the government-aided Kiau Nam School (now Qiaonan Primary School) to raise funds for a new building. These commemorative magazines by organisations such as the unions and school alumni associations also documented the cultural activities that the masses were involved in, as well as literary works written by union members and plays put up by alumni associations and the Singapore Arts Theatre. The bi- or tri-lingual nature of some publications also shows the kind of intercultural interaction that was taking place.
