3) P5 Hangzhou Immersion Trip (2018)
A Cultural Immersion Trip to Hangzhou was organized for selected P5 pupils during the June school holidays. During the six-day immersion programme, pupils and accompanying teachers were exposed to Chinese literature and culture. With a school-immersion trip to Jincheng Foreign Language School (金城外国语小学), our girls had the opportunity to experience school-life with their counterparts.
Touring Hangzhou was an incredible experience. The unique session on paper umbrella painting, scenic views of the West Lake and Leifeng Pagoda, and visits to Song Dynasty City and Tea Museum, had indeed captivated the hearts and interest of our pupils. On the last lap of the journey, pupils also toured the historic Mausoleum of General Yue Fei and learnt about his great contributions to the Song imperial government.
Apart from enriching pupils with knowledge, this platform has enabled them to cultivate self-reliance, independence and foster camaraderie.
The Mother Tongue Reading Fiesta is organised to promote reading of Mother Tongue storybooks.
Interactive activities were organised during MT Reading Fiesta. An exhibition of pupils' work was set up and pupils could redeem prizes based on the number of starts accumulated in their reading booklets.
SMPS ushered in year of the pig with a series of exciting activities. We started the celebrations with an exhilarating concert. This year, we invited elderly from Thye Hua Kwan Nursing Home (Hougang) to join our school for the concert. The concert featured wonderful performances from our performing arts CCA (Harmonica, Chinese Dance and International Dance). After the concert, we carried out engaging classroom activities to help pupils learn more about Chinese New Year and Chinese culture.
