International Friendship Day 2018
Yangzheng Primary School commemorated International Friendship Day on 2 April 2018. The theme for this year’s commemoration is "Celebrating the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Community." A series of meaningful and exciting activities were lined up for the pupils to gain a better understanding about the ASEAN community.
During the recess activities, pupils had the opportunity to produce their own batik-shirt design, create a simple and traditional handmade fan, as well as make lotus-shaped lanterns at the various art and craft booths.
Through the interactive assembly programme, pupils were introduced to the purpose and make-up of the ASEAN community. Pupils also gained insights into how the ASEAN countries work together to accelerate the region’s economic growth, promote social progress and cultural development of the Southeast Asian region.
