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 Mother Tongue Reading Fiesta is organised to promote reading of Mother Tongue storybooks amongst pupils, as well as to increase their confidence in using their own Mother Tongue.
Interactive and fun activities were planned to encourage pupils to read Mother Tongue storybooks. These include exhibition of pupils’ work; a prize redemption booth for pupils to redeem prizes based on the number of stars accumulated in their own reading booklets; borrow-a-book activity was available to encourage pupils to read more Mother Tongue books. Enhancing the fun element, a photo booth was available for students to pose with the provided props and take fun shots with their friends. Overall, students have enjoyed themselves during the fiesta.
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.
