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.

4) Learning With Technology

Platforms such as Xuele, Student Learning Space (SLS) and iMTL portal are used to provide greater support in the learning of Chinese Language.

5) 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.
