Chinese Language

Vision 
Conversant and competent students in the use of Mother Tongue languages with a passion for the Chinese, Malay and Indian Culture and tradition. 

The Chinese Department aims to develop our pupils to be conversant in Mandarin and to inculcate an appreciation for the Chinese culture through various programmes and activities. In alignment with our school’s ALP for Drama and Literary Arts (D’LitE), all Primary 1 to Primary 5 pupils attend different musical and drama productions yearly. Our Primary 1 and Primary 2 pupils attend an 8-hr speech and drama programme in Semester 1 and present a short performance for their fellow schoolmates at the end of the programme. Our Primary 1 to Primary 3 pupils are also trained to use the immersive digital storybook portal, Moo-O, which provides our pupils opportunities to role play the characters in the stories.

 To enhance the various language skills, cultivate an appreciation for the Chinese Culture and further materialise the vision of our school and department, the Chinese department has arranged for the following programmes to extend our pupils’ learning:
