2019 Mother Tongue Fortnight


The Mother Tongue Language Fortnight was launched by the School Leaders on 1 April and it lasted till 12 April. During this period, activities were planned for students as part of the school’s efforts in creating an immersive environment for the learning of Mother Tongue Languages. A wide range of activities related to the languages and culture was conducted during curriculum hours for all levels. This year, as part of the P4 Cultural Camp, our Chinese students attended an exhibition on “New World, New Life” at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, our Malay students went on a cultural trail to Singapore’s last standing kampong, Kampong Buangkok, and our Tamil students visited the Indian Heritage Centre. Fringe activities, namely Kampong Day and Duck Day, were also organised for our students during their respective recesses. These activities were well received by them.
