We celebrated Racial Harmony Day in July to create an opportunity for the young children to learn about different ethnic groups, their culture and traditions. They got to experience different cultures through art, games, traditional clothes, songs and more.
Many children and teachers dressed in traditional clothing of another instead of their own. It shows that not only is this day about understanding each other’s cultural heritage and beliefs, but also about expressing their love for them.
Our Nursery Two and Kindergarten Two children made posters as a class and hung them outside our school walls to promote racial harmony to the community.
Our Nursery One and Kindergarten One children got to experience Henna art beautifully drawn by their teachers.
Our students also came together to play traditional games like chapteh, paper ball, zero point, pick-up sticks, marbles and more.
The Kindergarten Two learned about the different types of traditional clothing and also did a fashion show in class.
The Kindergarten One children sang ‘The More We Get Together’ song in four languages; English, Mandarin, Malay and Tamil.
Through mutual understanding of each other’s cultural heritage, traditions and beliefs, we hope the younger generation will continue to live in a peaceful multicultural society.
