Activities were organized to engage and deepen
students’ understanding of the different aspects of Total Defence. In Economic
Defence, students pledged to save water which is an important economic
resource. The signed cut-out water droplets were collected and made into a
collage where it was put up at different parts of the school to remind the
students of their pledge to save water.
In Civil Defence, the
students had the chance to be involved in hands-on CPR session. They also
learnt basic bandaging and had the opportunity to apply the skills on their peers.
In Psychological and Social defence, students of
different races came together to build a tall tower using wooden pegs and ice
cream sticks. Despite facing challenges in the task with the structure toppling
down, the students persevered and really portray the spirit of harmony and
resilience. Their determination in achieving
success together was truly laudable.
