EDM without hook (For Website)

In Telok Blangah Hill Park there lives a family of dragonflies. Due to climate change, the dragonflies’ water source dries up. The family leaves in search for a new home. They come across Berlayer Creek and meet new friends who help them adapt to the new surroundings. What adventures will they come across in their new home?

"The Green Dragonflies and their Swampy Friends" is an illustrated children's book written and illustrated by BRPS’s very own. The book tells a tale of a group of Dragonflies who are displaced from their home and are in search of a new one.

Join us for our storytelling sessions to learn more about dragonflies and climate change! Suitable for children ages 10 and below.

Gold Award for Excellent Unit Award Year 2021

0935e226-3dcd-4cd7-b94d-7fdf36c1cee6

Gold Award for Excellent Unit Award Year 2021

Congratulations to our Red Cross Links for achieving the Gold Excellent Unit Award for the year 2021! This is our thirteenth consecutive year achieving this award since 2009.

As a Uniformed Group, Red Cross brings together a team of passionate individuals committed to serving the school and the community for the greater good. We instill the values of self-discipline, order and teamwork to our links. Our links were engaged in a series of activities which created opportunities for our students to acquire lifesaving skills which include first aid skills. Through these activities, our links develop into leaders who promote the humanitarian values of the Red Cross. Our links continued to display a sense of global citizenship and to be socially responsible citizens.

This year is especially memorable as our links had to adapt and adhere to the Safety Management Measures. Despite the constraints, our links continued to display excellence and resilience.
