Chinese Language Fortnight & Cultural Camp
With the objective of ‘Active Learners, Proficient Users’ in mind, the Chinese Department create more opportunities for students to be exposed to Chinese culture and values, and also to enhance their learning of Chinese Language.
Students are exposed to a wide range of activities, such as traditional games, performing arts, cultural activities and learning journeys, providing them with authentic opportunities to use their Mother Tongue Languages as effective tools to learn new things. These activities arouse students’ interests in learning Chinese culture and better equip them with the varied use of the language in different contexts. Students learn to be more confident, innovative and resilient.
To cultivate interest and develop proficiency in Chinese Language, the school subscribes to eChinese Animated Magazine and fortnightly magazine as supplementary learning materials.
In addition to promote the culture of reading, the Department also selected award-winning books for Class Reading Corners and Home Reading Programmes. Our Morning Buddy Reading further enhances the school’s belief in developing the students’ love for reading. School buddies read to the young readers to inculcate in them the joy of reading.
Through our intensive Reading Programme, students celebrate the joy of reading by participating in reading activities and storytelling competition.
