Welcome Back Celebration

The Welcome Back Celebration is about reconnecting after a long school holiday break. From 1995 to 2007, this event took the form of a jazz night in Fort Canning Park and then became a music in the park night from 2008-2009. Of late, the family-focused event has been held at the Terror Club, The American Club, the Singapore Flyer, BOUNCE trampoline park and other family-friendly venues. 

This year, we're super excited to hold the event at the dual campuses of XCL American Academy and 
XCL World Academy! It's going to be a blast!
