Alumni Career Talk 2018

We are excited to share that we have our former Blangahnites, who are our current Alumni members, as Guest Speakers for the Career Talk,  an ECG activity.

The main aim of the career talks with alumni is to offer our current P6 Blangahnites an opportunity to have a lively discussion with the speakers about their careers.

Ms Gokki & Ms Punitha shared their experiences as auditors to our Blangahnites and had an engaging discussion with them

Children's Day Celebration 2018

Co-Curriculum Activities

This year, we started Children's Day Celebrations with CCA in the morning, energising the whole school. To facilitate their CCA selection, the P2 pupils were invited to visit the various CCAs where they were engaged in a range of meaningful activities. Under the CCA teachers' supervision and CCA pupils' guidance, the P2 pupils tried out signature activities of the respective CCAs.

Robotics

"I felt nervous as I was afraid the robots we built for competition would stop working while I was presenting. Some parts came undone while we trying to fix them up. I wanted to do a good job so that we could attract more members into our CCA. After fixing some glitches, our robot was able to move as it did in the competition. The P2s were very impressed and wanted to make their own modifications to change the colour on the robot. They were also amazed that our robot was able to pick up the balls with ease and were excited to program it using the iPad. My nervousness flew away after the P2s showed enthusiasm in our presentation by asking questions. They also sighed when it was time to leave because they wanted to continue learning. I had fun teaching them." Joel Irawan Lim, 4O (Robotics)

Badminton

"The P2 pupils looked forward to learning new badminton skills during the CCA recruitment drive. With an enthusiastic spirit and inquisitive mind, it definitely made teaching and learning very engaging for all. We hope they had gathered some fundamental techniques of this racket sport. P2s, come and join Badminton next year!." Mrs Grace Lee (Badminton)

Basketball

"Having CCA in the morning is great as pupils are more energised in the morning and they can give their best in training. Engaging the P2 pupils in CCAs is a brilliant idea as they get a first hand experience of the different CCAs. This exposure will help them to make informed decisions about selecting their CCA of choice."   Mr Kumar (Basketball)

Red Cross

"Having CCA in the morning is great as pupils are more energised in the morning and they can give their best in training.

We would like to thank Ms Indranee Rajah, Second Minister for Education for visiting our school.

Visiting various schools to get to know the educators and students better, as well as to gain deeper insights into the education issues.

Visited Blangah Rise Primary School on 17 July 2018

Had a great dialogue with a group of students from pri 4-6. They were confident in expressing themselves, and were especially excited about their CCA. One wants to be a scientist when she grows up as her dad inculcated in her a love of science, another wants to be a teacher and yet another would like to be a nurse (her CCA is Red Cross). One young boy, Wei Yang had a number of suggestions for the Science Centre which I promised to pass on.

In my dialogue with the teachers, I was heartened by how passionate they are in their efforts to provide a conducive school environment and positive school experience for their students.

I would like to encourage the teachers to continue their sterling efforts in recognising the different strengths and talents of our students, and in bringing out the best potential in each child.

-Ms Indranee Rajah

Hebei Handan Laike Primary School

Our school hosted pupils and teachers from Hebei Handan Laike Primary School on 9 July and 10 July 2018. It was a meaningful cultural exchange for our pupils.

Reflections from pupils:
“It was a good eye-opener for me which I enjoyed. It was fun to be a guide to my new friend from China.” – Dusan Darius Eddy, 4 Opal

“I enjoyed my time spent with my new friend from China. We did a Merlion keychain together and also played some PE games together.” -- Heng Kok Huat Henri, 4 Opal

“My new friend Ansel, attended classes with me for the 2 days. I enjoyed studying with him.”
-- Yew Nian Yeow Nick, 5 Topaz

“Being a buddy to one of the pupils from China, was a great opportunity for me to learn more about the schools in China and more about the country. It was fun doing all the activities with my new friend from China. We shared the same hobby, that is reading and went to the library together during recess. Overall, I am very happy that I was given the chance to host my new friend and to learn a lot from her.” – Charlotte Soh Cai Yin, 5 Topaz
