This year’s theme for Racial Harmony Day is ‘Harmony in Our Hands’. Many students and staff members wore traditional costumes to school on that day. We started the celebration in the school hall with interactive cultural booths on Singapore’s multiracial diversity. Our parent volunteers also participated in this event. Not only did they teach the students how to play traditional games such as five stones, chapteh, paper balls, they also helped out at the cultural booths with the hand-on activities such as Henna and Bunga Rampai.  Social Studies teachers also carried out classroom activities to highlight the fact that living in harmony depends on us and reinforce the importance of building a harmonious relationship with fellow Singaporeans of different races.

Through the various hand-on activities at the cultural booths and playing of traditional games, students learnt to appreciate the culture and traditions of the different races.

Through the Doodle board in the hall, students reflected and shared with their classmates how they felt during the RHD commemoration. They also highlighted to their friends that racial harmony is important to maintain a nation which is safe and peaceful.

Students learn about the importance of Racial Harmony and understood the fact that living in harmony depends on us and we have to continue building harmonious relationships with fellow Singaporeans of different races.
