“LocaLoco” represent our sanctuary for the past 3 years and is our home to a bunch of crazily fun multimedia designs who are passionate about creating extraordinary design that speaks louder than words, and care for each other like a family.

Jovin’s word LocaLoca is a spanish word for wild, active, hyper and crazy. This is a festival and we look at TOA as an island. This is our last few days at TOA and we are a having a big celebration to celebrate our graduation. We are the localoca-ians, and we want you to join us.

LocaLoco represents an island festival in celebration for the 13 multimedia designers graduating and finally leaving our sanctuary after 3 years of hardships.

We invite YOU to join our final moments on the island and celebrate the final days with a bang.
My dear students from the batch of MM1505-1,

Today is the day I know you all have been waiting for: your independence day; no more assignments, no more late night works, no more critiques and scoldings from us. So my heartiest congratulations to you all, I know it has been a challenging journey to make it this far.

Not to kill the joy, but be warned, what lies ahead of you will be unpredictable. At times it will be hard, at times it will be easy. When the going gets tough, I hope your memories of being here will remind you of the strength that you have. It is the same strength in you that carried you to this day. I hope you will continue to grow stronger, as you are now enrolled in a far more challenging lifelong course called “life”. Remember this: progress takes time. Be patient in your journey and persevere. Know that the longer you engage in something, the more profound your skill & knowledge will be in that field.

Keeping this note short, I wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

Go and be loca loco! It’s your day, celebrate!

Thank you!
Best wishes,
Cheang Lin Yew
Head of Multimedia Department
Dear Graduates,

Congratulations on your Graduation!

This must be a very proud moment for you. It will also be fondly remembered as one of the best occasions in your life. As much it is significant to you, it also is for your dearest parents, partners, family and friends. The achievement of a lifetime is seldom managed without the moral and direct support from those closest to us.

I believe that you truly deserve this success. For now, enjoy the calm after all the hard work. Ease your mind before you start setting goals higher than you have ever imagined before. Then, do not stop until you get there! Part of the process is to make wonderful mistakes and collect valuable wounds, for they will be key ingredients to your success.

You are now only halfway to your destination. Hopefully, your graduation from The One Academy will be a beginning of a bright future for you. I wish you the best in discovering your dreams and reach for it!

We are proud of our alumni and hope that you are also proud to join the alumni community that has, since the inception of the institution, gone on to great success in life.

On behalf of everyone at The One Academy, I wish you every success in your future endeavors.
