Overseas Learning Journey to Hangzhou


china.jpgA group of selected Primary 5 Chinese and Tamil Language pupils went on an overseas immersion programme to Hangzhou in June. The main objective of this learning journey was to increase pupils' knowledge and sensitivity to cultures that are different from their own.  During this trip, pupils had the opportunity to visit Ren Min Primary School and many historic places in Hangzhou. Throughout the trip, they have experienced learning in a different context and made new friends in Ren Min Primary School. The pupils have also enjoyed learning about the rich history and culture of Hangzhou.

Festivals

Pongal Celebration @ Evergreen Primary School


p.jpg

The primary 2 and primary 4 students learning the Tamil Language had a chance to experience Pongal Celebration in school. Pongal is the harvest festival celebrated by Hindus to thank nature. To provide students with an authentic learning experience, parent volunteers together with Tamil Language teachers decorated a part of the school and cooked the “pongal rice”.  Teachers explained the rationale behind pongal celebration and the process.  To promote cultural exchange, students from one of the P2 Chinese class were invited to be part of the celebration. Students not only enjoyed the viewing the process of pongal celebration but also got to taste the ‘pongal’ rice..
