Chinese New Year and Mother Tongue Week
母语周兼农历新年庆祝活动


金猪贺迎新春

金猪驾到,万象更新。2月4日早晨,公教校园春意浓郁。中小学生同聚广场迎新送旧。放眼望去,广场红彤彤一片,喜气洋洋。

节庆开始前,来自中学部的两位司仪大哥哥为我们邀请萧神父为师生祷告,祈福一年平安顺遂。接着校长及副校长连同家长会代表共捞鱼生。表演节目由华乐

团率先出场。团员先呈献一支乐曲,再打鼓。随着振奋人心的鼓声渐渐退去,现代舞学生继而进场舞出动感和活力。欢腾的氛围在舞龙舞狮表演时达到了最高潮。

农历新年是华人传统节日。对于华人传统文化及其蕴含的价值观,在过节时体会更深。庆祝活动结束后,高年级的学生为低年级的学生分享新年习俗和孝道故事。六年级学生也教导三年级学弟一些方言的新年贺词。

母语双周活动于1月29日至2月1日举行。活动内容围绕华族传统艺术。学生利用休息时间到食堂学剪纸和陀螺彩绘,还有猜灯谜及玩传统游戏等。恰逢春节,活动 活动区还添设了挥春和写新年贺词的摊位。图书馆内设新春拍照区,反应热烈。学生乐与猪八戒画像合影,以过个难忘的猪年。1月29日周会,全校学生于礼堂欣赏精彩的京剧表演《猪八戒学武》。学生看了演员逗趣的演出,开怀大笑,不再觉得京剧曲高和寡。

Catholic Affairs


Lent & Easter 2019

March heralded many activities for Catholics, Christians and others who were interested to find out more about our Pastoral Programme. The Season of Lent began with Fr Joe Lopez celebrating the Ash Wednesday mass at the Secondary School Hall. This was followed by a Penitential Service where the Archdiocesan Northern District priests celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Prior to the session, the Jesus & I teachers led a group of 200 pupils to examine their conscience using the Lord’s Prayer as a guide to how they can draw closer to God each day.

During the Fridays of Lent, pupils who attended the chapel sessions prayed the Stations of the Cross. Videos were used to aid their understanding of the Passion of Christ. The Charities Week envelopes were also handed out during this period as a reinforcement of almsgiving – one of the three pillars of Lent. This year, a combined washing of feet liturgy was held at the Secondary School Hall. Having explained the loving actions of Jesus teaching his disciples “servant leadership”, Ms Soh led the feet washing ritual and washed the feet of 12 participants including parents, teachers and Catholic pupils. In the evening, the younger primary pupils reflected on the passion of Jesus with their older brothers in a combined “prayer walk” to the Parish of Christ the King and attended Mass of the Lord’s Supper there. Parents accompanied the younger ones as part of a family Lenten reflection. An Easter fair was organised by the Catholic parents in conjunction with the Parent Support Group and they had a great time running game stalls that taught the pupils Easter is more than just “eggs and bunnies”. Scripture and lives of our saints formed the themes of these game stalls and the students were rewarded with candies and bookmarks. A special magnetic bookmark was commissioned for this occasion and distributed.  This came with a special Easter prayer card that guided them in prayer during the Season of Easter.

Participation in Pei Hwa Hackathon Event


Eight of our Primary Four pupils participated in the Pei Hwa Hackathon, organised by Pei Hwa Secondary School. The event, comprising a training session and the competition itself, was a great learning opportunity for our pupils to deepen their micro:bit coding and basic crafting (“Maker Movement”) skills collaboratively with their peers, and innovate competitively to create products that resolve authentic real-world problems.

Mathematics


Mastermind is a classic code – breaking board game of logic and deduction involving a code maker and a code breaker. It pits one player’s wits and analytical skills against another. The idea of the game is for one player (the code-breaker) to guess the secret code chosen by the other player (the code-maker). The code-breaker makes a series of pattern guesses. After each guess, the code-maker gives feedback, for example, the number of pegs that are of the right colour and in the correct position and the number of pegs that are of the correct colour but not in the correct position.

These numbers are usually represented by small black and white pegs. Every year, the pupils enjoy themselves while playing the game. This year, the Math department invited the Primary 4, 5 and 6 pupils to participate in the competition. The response was overwhelming. All in all, it was a successful competition.

P5 Diversity of Cells Lessons @ Science Centre

Our P5 young gentlemen embarked on a learning journey to the Singapore Science Centre to attend the workshop on Diversity of Cells to deepen their knowledge on cells.

The objective of this learning journey is for our young gentlemen to explore and observe the variety of life forms on Earth, cells in particular, through a microscope and appreciate their significance. Cells that were covered in the workshop include yeast, pond organisms, animals, plants and bacteria cells. At the same time, the boys also had the opportunity to learn how to use the microscope to view these cells and identify for themselves the differences between various cells. They understood the application of using microscope to identify microorganisms or cells.

It was indeed an enriching learning experience for our young gentlemen where their curiosity was stimulated through this experiential learning.
