International Friendship Day 2019
This year, the theme for International Friendship Day (IFD) is Connected Communities. Globalisation provides us with the opportunity to be acquainted with friends of different traditions, languages, cultures and histories. It is thus important to encourage our students to actively deepen the connection with our neighbours as well as nurture the spirit of friendship and collaboration among different peoples.
During the Social Studies lessons, the students learnt about the purpose of ASEAN and the member states. They then applied their knowledge through various recess activities.
In PGPS, our students learnt to greet in the various languages through the listening posts stations. Using iPads, they practised and recorded their greetings so that their peers can listen to them. They also matched the country flags to the respective national flowers and currencies. With the correct match, they then get to pose with the props for photo taking.
Total Defence Day 2019
This year, an array of activities were lined up during our recesses to show how we can play a part to keep Singapore strong on 14th and 15th February.
Our students experienced a modified Standard Obstacle Course (SOC), played the Total Defence Puzzle that highlighted the 6 pillars of Total Defence and witnessed our cubs Scouts demonstrating basic first aid skills.
On 15th February, the students had an up close experience of the police vehicle and the tactical gear. They put on different uniforms and posed for a picture with our male teachers who were in their smart uniforms. Students also had a go at putting on the camouflage cream.
