National Day 2021 - Celebrating The Singapore Spirit in Peiying

On 6 August 2021, the school celebrated the nation’s 56th birthday in line with this year’s National Day theme, ‘Together, Our Singapore Spirit’. The theme calls on Singaporeans to come together as one and draw new strength from our “can-do” spirit amidst challenging circumstances from COVID-19. We want to encourage our students to embrace a “dare-to-try” attitude. All students and staff wore red and/or white to express their pride towards Singapore on that day.

This year, in view of the pandemic, the Observance ceremony and celebration were carried out in the classrooms. An array of fun and engaging activities were organised for the students. Flag buntings with students’ well wishes were displayed outside their classrooms. National Day songs and this year’s virtual dance were among the favourite activities for the students. The school also prepared a Stronger Together Pack consists of a highlighter and a clipboard packed in a drawstring bag.  

To show our gratitude to our stakeholders such as the canteen vendors, bookshop vendor and the cleaning attendants, a note of appreciation was written by each student. Through this celebration, we hope to have instilled a strong sense of national identity, pride and love for Singapore.

English Fiesta 2021

The English Fiesta 2021 was launched on 29 March. The theme for this year is “Colour your life with English: English creates magic in your communication with those around you!” In order to increase our students’ interests in learning the language, the English department had organised many interesting activities during the week.

The week started with a book sharing by the National Library Branch, followed by a video on commonly mispronounced words. Several class activities were also designed and conducted. For the lower primary students, they were tasked to create different poems from shape poems to list poems. For the middle primary students, they were assigned to create acrostic and alliteration poems. For the upper primary students, they were given the opportunity to create limericks and write a postcard to their friends about the outer space. Imagine the fun in class!

To inculcate the love for reading, pre-recorded videos of reading aloud by guest readers were created and played daily as part of the virtual reading segment. To show how English is indeed colourful and fun, staff and students were encouraged to dress up in their favourite book characters on 31 March. On that day, our students were taken on a trip to their favourite magical wonderland where many book characters came alive in the school compound. Our staff and our students had a fun time dressing up and guessing the various storybook characters and titles of the storybooks on display. Instantly, Peiying Primary School was transformed into a land of magic and colours! The English department would like to thank all students, parents and staff for their support of the activities organised.

P5 Camp 2021

Our annual Primary 5 Camp has always been designed as a learning experience to develop our students’ character and leadership skills and at the same time, instill PRIDE values and Social and Emotional (SE) competencies skills as students interact with one another through community living away from home. Although campers were unable to overnight in school due to COVID-19 Safe Management Measures, the essence of the camp remained the same - a platform to discover their interests and talents in outdoor and adventure activities as well as fostering team spirit through well-crafted and meaningful activities.

Campers visited Low Elements at the Peiying Adventure Centre, participated in Team-Building games and Wushu as well as journeyed together around the school during the NE Trail and Virtual Orienteering. Many campers learnt to be more responsible and independent during the camp. Through the various activities, they also got to know their classmates better. The students’ reflections also revealed that the camp had helped them forge closer ties and build stronger friendships with their friends and teachers. 

At the end of the camp, the students provided positive feedback about the camp and shared their learning experiences with their class mates and teachers.

With that, the objectives of the Primary 5 camp have been achieved. Onwards Peiying!

Prize Presentation 2021

On Monday, 1 March 2021, Peiying Primary School celebrated the success and achievements of students who have made academic progress and achieved character excellence during the Prize Presentation for the Primary 4, 5 and 6 students. 

Although parents and students were not physically present in the school hall to witness the ceremony, the event was live-streamed and watched by all students in their respective classrooms. Invited parents of prize-winners were also able to witness the ceremony virtually. 

May our students embrace the spirit of life-long learning, be inspired by their friends' successes, continue to strive for excellence and continue to display our school PRIDE values.

Total Defence Day 2021

Total Defence Day is commemorated annually on 15 February to remind ourselves the importance of being prepared to defend Singapore. This year, Peiying Primary commemorated Total Defence Day on 8 February. In line with this year’s theme, “Together We Keep Singapore Strong”, the school had planned meaningful classroom activities to engage students in understanding the six pillars of defence and the roles that they play in Total Defence.

During the Assembly Programme, the students learnt about how they can play their roles in Social Defence and work together to combat Covid-19. They learnt about the efforts put in by the frontliners and essential workers in reducing the spread of Covid-19. The students also listened to the Total Defence Day message read by our Principal. The classroom activities were an extension of their learning from the Assembly Programme. Some of the students made thank-you cards for the frontliners to express their appreciation for them. Some made pledges and total defence shield to express their promise to defend Singapore.   

Chinese New Year Celebrations 2021

The school celebrated Chinese New Year (CNY) on 11 February 2021. On that day the staff and students were dressed in our colourful festive wear to usher in the Year of the Ox. It provided an opportunity for us to share with our friends about our traditional clothes. For the first time, the celebration was done solely in the classrooms to minimise intermingling among us. We were treated to a virtual concert through Zoom. In the concert, the Student Emcees shared with us some common values and practices among the different cultural festivals. We also learnt about the dos and don’ts of the CNY celebrations. The concert was entertaining and educational. Next, we participated in a level quiz to win some prizes. We were thrilled and overjoyed when our classmates managed to get the correct responses. We wrapped up the celebration by doing some handicraft in our classrooms. Some of us made lanterns and fish using the red packets and others did some colouring. We had fun making our handicraft and use them to decorate the classrooms. 

Key Student Leaders' Investiture Ceremony 2021

On Monday, 8 March 2021, Peiying Primary School held its Key Student Leaders’ Investiture Ceremony with great enthusiasm. The investiture is an important event for both Prefects and Junior Sports Leaders. It was an occasion where our Prefects and Junior Sports Leaders were formally given the recognition to their authority to lead and to renew their promise to serve the school with P.R.I.D.E. Our Prefects and Junior Sports Leaders were all prepared to don the mantle of leadership and to perform their duties entrusted to them by the school. 

Back to School Programmes 2021

The Explore, Experience and Engage (E3) Day was planned to welcome our students back to school and to help them settle into school life.   The first day of school can be both exciting for some students and daunting for others, especially for the Primary 1 students who are new to the school. Recognising this, E3 Day was planned to support students’ well-being as they explore and experience the new environment in school. 

P2 to P6 students were engaged in teambuilding games to build rapport between teachers, students and peers.   They had “ice-breaking” games and their teachers spent time taking them through classroom routines and expectations. 

For the Primary 1 students, their Primary 5 buddies assisted them during recess.  It was indeed heartening to see our Primary 5 students  helping the young ones in purchasing their food. 

The E3 Day has been a great platform for our students to transit to the new environment. Students managed to settle into the school life with ease and confidence. 

Appreciation for School Heroes 2020

Peiying’s School Heroes has played a huge role in ensuring the safety and cleanliness of the school. Our school heroes are made up of our School Admin Team officers, our cleaners and security guards.

Their support has been even more crucial in our fight against Covid-19. As such, the school had a day dedicated to our school heroes to highlight the importance of their roles to our students and to show our appreciation to our heroes.

Our teachers and students came up with appreciation posts which were posted digitally on the school’s television screen, and cards which were personally given to them with a basket of goodies. Through this appreciation day, the students understand the roles of our school heroes and show appreciation for them.

PRIDE STAR ceremony 

The PRIDE Star Awards Ceremonies were held on 21 September 2020 (Primary 3 to Primary 6 winners) and 28 September 2020 (Primary 1 and Primary 2 winners). A total of 235 students received their awards for demonstrating our school core values (Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diligence and Empathy). The awards aim to motivate students to display the school core values in their daily lives.




Racial Harmony Day 2019

On 21st July each year, schools commemorate Racial Harmony Day (RHD) to mark the anniversary of the 1964 racial riots. On this day, students will reflect on and celebrate Singapore as a harmonious society built upon a rich diversity of cultures. This year, students in Peiying Primary School were transported back to Singapore in the past to learn more about the traditional trades, games, crafts and lives of our pioneers and how they have evolved over the years into a rich tapestry of culture and heritage!

Activities for the students included:

RHD Opening Play
Watch as Ramanujan, a dhobi, work hand in hand with the people around him to fight for a better future!

Peiying Pop Quiz Star! 
Participate in a daily trivia quiz about our culture and heritage!

Our Games: Then and Now 
Play traditional games from the good old kampung days, and reflect about how the lives of Singpaoreans have evolved

Our Crafts: Then and Now
Learn how to make traditional layang-layang and tie Chinese knots and consider how traditional crafts can be a part of modern living

Trades of Our Past
Look out for students dressed in the costumes of the olden day tradesmen like the Kacang Putih Man, Satay Uncle, Samsui Women and Mata-mata!



The learning does not stop there. Students are given the opportunity to reflect on the activities and share their thoughts on the ways in which life in Singapore has 

changed over the years or stayed the same.

Newspaper collection 2019

The primary 6 students collected newspapers for their Values in Action (VIA) activity this year. The students went to the neighbouring HDB blocks around the school to collect newspapers donated by the residents. They learnt to persevere although the newspapers were heavy and it was a hot day. 


The students worked together to bring all the newspapers back to school. In their reflections, the students felt that it was a meaningful activity as the money that was raised through the sale of newspapers was used to buy seeds for hydroponics. The hydroponic seeds would be planted by teachers. The vegetables harvested would be given to the needy families through the RCs. All in all, the students enjoyed the activity and felt that it was a meaningful morning.




The PRIDE Star Awards Ceremony is held annually to recognize students who have consistently demonstrated the PRIDE values of Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diligence and Empathy. Awardees are selected based on a set of criterias from each value and are also supported by citations from their teachers. Students whom have demonstrated the same value consecutively for two years were also awarded the ‘Superstar Award’. The PRIDE Star Awards seek to encourage all students to continuously demonstrate the values of Peiying in all aspects of their life.





Home Visit 

Peiying Primary School arranged visits to the Woodlands Care Home and Lion Befrienders. The Learning Journey was part of the Primary 5 VIA activities. Pupils were very happy to participate in this rare opportunity. They prepared some performance for the elderly. They also worked in teams to create games and hands on activities suitable for the elderly.  The elderly were very happy and they enjoyed the moments with the pupils.  The pupils have enjoyed themselves too as this Learning Journey has also taught them important values such as compassion and appreciation.

Hari Raya Puasa Celebrations

Hari Raya Aidilftiri, or Hari Raya Puasa, was celebrated by all students and staff of the school on 27 May 2019. During assembly, a Hari Raya skit was performed. With the theme of “Raya Together”, students watched the skit about how Hari Raya is celebrated by a typical family in Singapore, and some lucky students were able to participate in parts of the skit, with some funny and touching moments.


In their classes, students completed level activities such as Hari Raya decorative mobiles and word searches. 


In addition, recess activities were conducted for all P1 to P6 students on 28 and 29 May 2019.
Students were delighted and excited to learn how to make Hari Raya green envelopes and mini ‘Bunga Mangga’.


English Language Fiesta

With the theme of Joy of Learning English, the English Language department organised its annual English Language Fiesta this year in April. The event was launched on 1 April 2019, with a book talk held by NLB. 


Throughout the month, level activities such as Spelling Bee, Choral Reading and Reader’s Theatre were conducted, and students had the opportunity to mingle with characters from 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.
