With students coming from different classes, “Start in Right” helped to ease the anxiety of a new school term for the P5 students. It also created a platform for Form Teachers to get to know their students in a non-teaching setting. Students went through different lesson activities aiming to equip them with the essential knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to prepare for the new school term. One of the key highlights of the programme would be the Class Interaction Games. It created the opportunity for students to overcome shyness and to forge new friendships. Through the games, students are able to demonstrate care and concern for their classmates, cheering them on while they were playing against another team and displaying the never give up attitude even when the team is down.

TOTAL DEFENCE DAY 2020
This year, our school marked Total Defence Day on 14 February 2020 amidst the backdrop of the Covid-19 situation.
The days leading up to Total Defence Day saw everyone rallying together like well-oiled machinery as the school’s emergency preparedness plan was activated in real time. The school’s constant emphasis on key phrases like ‘personal hygiene’, ‘social distancing’, and ‘looking out for one another regardless of race, religion or self-interests’ were well-received by the students. They took pride in carrying out their civic duties.
On 14 February, the Six Pillars of Defence, highlighting the importance of Social, Psychological and Digital Defence in combating the current Covid-19 situation, as well as the meaning of the various SCDF emergency sirens, were shared with the students. As part of the activities to commemorate Total Defence Day, our students learnt the importance of practising good hygiene during recess through the introduction of the wipe-down routine in the canteen. During snack break for the day, every student was given a packet of cream cracker to remind them of Singapore’s not-too-distant past when our forefathers had to depend on food rations to survive troubled times.
The critical message conveyed at Total Defence Day 2020 for all is to cherish what we have every day and put in every effort to keep Singapore safe!

2020 Racial Harmony Day
Every year, schools commemorate Racial Harmony Day on 21 Jul 2020. This year, we commemorated the event on 13 Jul 2020 as the actual day falls on the unprecedented Term 3 mid-term school break. Nonetheless, the Covid-19 pandemic did not dampen our spirit to commemorate the event. Students and staff supported the event by cladding in colorful ethnic costumes. Besides the usual Assembly Talk, an array of interesting traditional cultural activities were lined up for the students to bring out the RHD theme - “Multicultural Singapore”. During PE lessons and CCE lessons, students played traditional games such as Sepak Takraw, Zero-point, Pallanguli and Chapteh with their friends. During recess, they also tried various types of traditional food of different races specially prepared by our canteen vendors.

2020 National Day @ Yio Chu Kang Primary School
Our school commemorated National Day on 7 Aug 2020, Friday.
Due to the Covid19 pandemic, this year’s National Day programme was quite different from the previous years. Leading on to the national event, pre-assembly programmes filled with songs and activities started from 3 Aug 2020 and went on for a week to hype up the celebration mood. On the day of the commemoration, the Observance Ceremony was livestreamed from the parade square while all staff and students participated in the ceremony from the classrooms.
Even in the midst of the pandemic, students and staff clad in red tops formed a sea of red in every classroom. Many students also brought along their own handheld national flags for the celebration. All these represents the resolve and commitment of everyone in the school to be part of the national collective effort to overcome the Covid-19 pandemic.
