This year’s theme for Racial Harmony Day is ‘Diversity Our Strength’. We started the celebration one week before Racial Harmony Day with traditional games daily in our newly refurbished NE Gallery and Racial Harmony Day pre-activities during Social Studies lessons. The pre-activities helped the students to understand that building and maintaining the harmonious relationship between the different races depends on them, and reinforced the importance of racial harmony.   On the day of the celebration, students and staff watched a short skit put up by our school’s Speech and Drama club after the weekly V-10 session. The topic for V-10 and the skit is on one of the school’s core value- Harmony. Students were taught the importance of maintaining a harmonious relationship with their peers of different races. After which, students proceed to their respective CCAs and played the various traditional games within CCA. Students got to participate in hands-on activities such as Chinese calligraphy and making of Malay Bunga Manggar led by our CCA leaders. The objective is to promote racial harmony and strengthen the racial integration bond within each CCA group which consist of mixed groups of students. Student leaders also get to display their leadership qualities through “Leading by Serving” by guiding their peers through the hands on activities. During recess, students also get to visit the interactive cultural booths at the Indoor Basket Ball Court (IBC) and the play traditional game at the NE Gallery.
