Chinese New Year and Mother Tongue Week
Starting 2019, there has been a change in competition format for Basketball, Table Tennis and Wushu Junior Division competition due to the Junior Division Review. The changes seek to bring about more learning and developmental experiences for primary school pupils so as to develop in them a sustained lifelong enjoyment and participation in sports. With the strong guidance of the school leaders, committed staff, competent and dedicated coaches, as well as the unwavering support of our parents, our young gentlemen were able to rise to occasions at numerous times and do our school proud.

2019 Enrichment Achievement
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.

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.
