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.

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.

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!

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.
PRIDE STAR (P3 - P6)
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.
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.
