Fairy Tales as ‘Book Characters Come Alive’ during recess.
They were also entertained by a hilarious skit by the English Drama Club, storytelling sessions and borrowed books through the Book-to-Go programme by NLB.
International Friendship Day
The theme for this year’s celebration was “Connected Communities”.
To kick start the celebration, our teachers shared with the pupils the objectives of the commemoration. There was also an assembly programme that displayed the various ASEAN dances. Through this performance, we hope that pupils are aware of International cultures through the performing arts.
We also hope that pupils will be able to demonstrate respect and
harmony when building friendships with people from different countries. Mother
Tongue Teachers and Social Studies Teachers carried out IFD lesson packages
with pupils. The interactive Learning Wall showcased the
different ASEAN Music and Dance to pupils.
‘Let’s Unite @ Recess’ that comprises of ‘Let’s Boogie’ and ‘E-Explore ASEAN’ were other highlights of the International Friendship Day Commemoration.Pupils watched a dance video on the screen and danced along. Teachers joined in the fun too! The dance encouraged teamwork and harmony amongst the pupils as well as the teachers.
At the ‘E-Explore ASEAN’, pupils came in pairs to explore more about ASEAN through Kahoot.
We hope that the International Friendship Day commemoration was an enriching experience for all the pupils and staff.
