2018 P4 CL Cultural Camp

Every year, the Primary 4 students taking Chinese Language participate in a half-day cultural camp to immerse themselves in an environment using the Chinese Language and learning about the Chinese Culture. This year, our P4 students enjoyed themselves thoroughly as they were involved in interesting and unique activities - Wushu (武术),  Blowing Painting (吹画) and Fragrant Pouch Making (香囊制作).

2018 Chinese Cultural Exposure Scheme (CPES)

The Cultural Performance Exposure Scheme (CPES) endeavour by the Ministry of Education, is aimed at enhancing our students’ understanding and knowledge of the Chinese Language and the Chinese Culture beyond the school. In support of this initiative, our Chinese Language Department organised a learning journey for our P4 Chinese Language students and selected P5 Chinese Language students to watch a Chinese drama performance ‘Bao Xiao Long Zhua Zei Ji’ (包小龙抓贼记) by the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Arts and Cultural Troupe on 22 March 2018, Thursday (Term 2, Week 1).  It was a fun and exciting activity for the students as few of them have the experience of watching a drama at the theatre.
