They made their way to the Singapore Zoological Gardens with their form and co-form teachers and what an adventure they had! They saw many animals and discovered many interesting facts about them. In addition, pupils had fun with their classmates and teachers outside their normal school environment. It was indeed a valuable opportunity for bonding.
Pupils also completed the activity booklets that had been specially prepared for them. All of them had an enriching learning experience through the English and Mathematics activities in the booklets.
Everyone would agree that they had a fun and fruitful trip!

On 18 November 2015, the Primary 5 pupils embarked on an interactive heritage trail at the Singapore River. The Singapore River trail traces the story of Singapore’s growth, from its early beginnings as a quiet fishing village, to a free port, growing in prominence as entrepot trade was carried out. The learning journey included walking along the offices, warehouses, jetties and historic buildings such as the current Asian Civilisation Museum at the Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay areas.
The Primary 5 pupils were provided with digital devices that guided them to understand the story of change and continuity of the Singapore River and its vicinity. This interactive heritage trail online platform was very engaging for our pupils as it contained ICT resources, videos and enabled them to submit their answers to quizzes and perform tasks such as making a video.
Through this learning journey, our pupils appreciated the special effort taken to create a unique city character for Singapore where the dynamism of the business area and the skyscrapers are contrasted with the idyllic charm of the quays and the historic remnants of our past.
