端午安康!May you have peace, health, sweetness, wealth and happiness. The children celebrated Dragon Boat Festival through singing and dancing of songs, making of the 粽子 (zong zi) also known as sticky rice dumplings on 14th June 2021.

They helped to scoop and pour the toppings into the folded bamboo leaves before the teacher tied them up into triangular shapes.

Hari Raya Puasa Celebration – 12 May 2021

January 14, 2022

Hari Raya Puasa refers to “The day of celebrating the end of fasting.” During this holy month, Muslims practice fasting to empathize with the poor and underprivileged and show appreciation for their food. To celebrate the end of fasting, families don colourful traditional outfits as they go from house to house and savour delicious foods such as rendang, ketupat and many different kinds of “kuih”.

In this year’s Hari Raya celebration, the children took part in traditional games such as rolling marbles, green packet making and ketupat weaving. Games and activities are a fun way for children to learn the concept of diversity. They also teach young children to respect and celebrate the different cultures here in Singapore.

Earth Day Celebration – 22 April 2021

January 14, 2022

In conjunction with Earth Day and our SSDB project, the N2, K1 and K2 children of Camberley Preschool @ Balmoral came together in their own individual classes, to learn more about ways they can save the Earth! They came up with various practices such as turning off the lights when it is not in use or using a cup whenever they brush their teeth. The children were able to comprehend the importance of recycling and not littering our world, and even got to create little Earth sun catchers!

The children also learned facts on why we celebrate Earth Day and talked about how we can help save Mother Earth in our own simple ways such as recycling, saving water and planting more seeds. They upcycled some materials and made crafts like binoculars and a bus! Additionally, the children visited the recycling bins in the plaza and sorted rubbish according to paper, plastic and glass. Then, they expressed their appreciation for Earth by creating an Earth Day poster with the slogan “We can change the world.”
