Brownies West Division Day 2012

On 28 July 2012 (Saturday), 16 of our brownies were at Greenridge Secondary School to take part in the annual Brownies West Division Day.
This event gave brownies from the West Zone Schools a chance to learn how they can play an active role in contributing towards saving the environment.
They used recycled materials to create useful items for everyday usage. The girls also learnt the importance of teamwork in achieving their goals.
Our brownies did us proud by winning the Magazine Craft  ( 2nd Runner Up ) and the Recycled Tote Bag ( 2nd Runner Up). Congratulations!

Cultural Immersion trip to Malacca 2012

Our P4 students went on a 3 days 2 nights Cultural Immersion trip to Malacca from the 24 June to 26 June this year. A total of 149 students and 23 staff went together on this trip.
The main objectives of the trip were to promote cultural learning, provide opportunities for students to interact with students from another country and to broaden the learning experiences of students.
Our students and staff visited the popular Malacca heritage and cultural sites and also had the opportunity to visit a century old Malaccan school. They also visited the Baba and Nonya Museum to gather more information about the unique Peranakan culture. We are very sure our students came away from this trip with richer experiences.

On 28 July ’12, a sunny Saturday afternoon, it was heartening to see fathers streaming into the school hall with their children beside them. From their smiles and lively conversations, it was evident that excitement was in the air.
Through the various fun-filled activities, the fathers got to know their own children better.  The children, on the other hand, saw sides of their fathers that they have never known to exist before.  Fathers and children learn to trust each other and accept each other as they were.
The highlight of the evening was the BBQ dinner. The unique aspect was each father-child couple had a dedicated BBQ pit to themselves. It was indeed a heart-warming opportunity where father and child partner to set the fire and cooked for one another (picture e).
In closing, the group also acknowledged one another, in particular, an aged father who is not well-versed in English. Despite these limitations, he took time to be with his child. At the feedback and evaluation segment, he said in mandarin, “Due to my work, it is very hard to have time alone with my child, but I am happy today because we got to know each other better.”
“To be in our children’s memories tomorrow, we have to be in their lives today”.  (Dads For Life)
We would like to say “Well Done Dads and children”.
Look out for the action in the photos gallery!
