Visitors from Malawi





本校的小三学生有幸参加《乐学华文 点亮心灯》的活动,与他们在本校礼堂做近距离的交流。四名马拉维访客在台上以华语做自我介绍,并分享了学习华文的心得。过后,他们还为同学们朗读唐诗《游子吟》、背诵《弟子规》,以及呈现精彩的武术表演。同学们都报以热情的掌声。《乐学华文 点亮心灯》这项活动是在推广华文学习委员会的支持下,由新加坡ACC关怀中心和圆通学校联合主办的。

Picture Book Reading Programme

Picture Book Reading Programme

To encourage pupils to read Chinese storybooks, the Picture Book Reading Programme was rolled out in Year 2010 and has been ongoing since then. It is well received by the Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils. While reading the picture book together as a class, pupils will be posed questions about the story, prompting them to guess the storyline. After reading the book, pupils will need to complete an interesting activity and attractive prizes will be given to pupils who did the worksheet well. Their works will then be laminated and shown to other pupils. Through a series of such activities, we hope pupils will grow to love reading Chinese books.
