Republic Polytechnic is known for our strong family spirit and identity. Many RP alumni have gone on to pursue their dream careers. Some even remain connected and continue to give back to the RP community.
Hear from some of our coolest alumni as they share more about their time in RP and life after graduation!
Gavriel Tan and fellow alum Lee Qi Xun started Altimate Nutrition, a business that turns insects into food for humans. Their innovative cricket protein bars are pending Singapore Food Agency approval for local distribution and consumption.
Outlining their future plans, Gavriel shared: "We are expecting to develop and launch new flavours for our protein bars, and introduce other insect types such as mealworms. Most insects are actually safe to eat, contain plenty of nutrients, and are far more sustainable.”
Tan Wei Shan graduated from Diploma in Restaurant & Culinary Operations (DRCO). He is the Chef and Owner of Mixsense Private Dining.
Recounting his educational experience in RP, Wei Shan shared that "RP presented me with countless opportunities that pushed my boundaries of growth and success. Being the President of the Team Republic Sports Club, and several other interest groups, strengthened my core in social skills, management, and adaptability. Being able to represent Singapore in different culinary competitions locally and abroad magnified my knowledge and expertise. It serves as the fundamental building blocks by providing me exposure and experience that I now apply in my own business – Mixsense Private Dining."
