Chinese Language

The school aims to cultivate pupils' interest in Chinese Language and further develop their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through various platforms. 

Programmes are organised to engage pupils and support learning. These programmes include the Mother Tongue Language Fortnight programmes, language and cultural camps, overseas immersion trip, enrichment classes and Chinese theatre exposure programme. 

Key Programmes and Activities:

1) Mother Tongue Language Fortnight

Different programmes are conducted during the MTL Fortnight to create an environment for the learning of traditional culture.



2) P3 Mother Tongue Language Cultural Workshop

Cultural activities are conducted to introduce traditional culture to Primary 3 pupils.


3) P5 Taiwan Immersion Trip (2017)

A seven-day Cultural Immersion Trip to Taiwan was organized for selected Primary 5 pupils during the June school holidays. The school immersion trip to Jiang Cui Elementary School (江翠国小) provided our girls the opportunity to experience the school life in Taiwan. Besides experiencing the landscape, place and people, the girls get to experience hands-on activities such as building their own traditional oven with rocks to bake sweet potatoes at Tou Cheng Leisure Farm and making their own paper from scratch. These activities were new experiences for them. This immersion trip also enabled the girls to gain deeper understanding to Taiwan’s culture and history. The programme has provided a platform for our girls to cultivate self-reliance, independence and foster camaraderie.

The Chinese New Year concert was a joyous celebration, with exciting programmes put up by our teachers and pupils. There were dance performances by the Chinese dance and International dance groups, sing-along sessions, Harmonica and Wu-shu performances. We also invited a group of elderly from Thye Hua Kwan Seniors Activity Centre to join us in our celebrations on Chinese New Year’s eve.

6) Learning with technology

Chinese reading activities were further enhanced with the use of an online reading tool where pupils were encouraged to read, attempt related activities and accumulate tokens. The tool provided a platform for cultivating good reading habits and motivated pupils to excel in reading. Other interactive platforms were also explored and used to provide greater support in learning of skills such as oral and writing through collaboration.

7) Level Competitions - P1 to P6

To create a vibrant MTL learning environment in school, level competitions are organised for all levels, such as story-telling, creative writing, language quizzes, etc. Besides aiming to raise pupils' Mother Tongue proficiency, the level competitions also serve as platforms for pupils to showcase their skills and talents.
