Racial Harmony Day
“The Singapore Way”– the theme for Racial Harmony Day for 2017 emphasised the importance of preserving racial and religious harmony in Singapore and in Northoaks. Our students participated in a series of activities for an entire week to promote inter-racial understanding among students and to appreciate the diversity of cultures in Singapore
Activities throughout the week included ethnic performances such as “Kuai Ban”, “Dikir Barat”, and a fashion parade showcasing various ethnic costumes by our very own teachers! Thanks to our Parent Support Group, students had the opportunity to try their hands in making ethnic food like “tang yuan”, “muruku”, malay “kueh” and “tea tarik”. Our very own “tea tarik" teacher, Mr Kanthan, demonstrated to students the art of “tea tarik”. Students also played traditional games such as hopscotch, zero point, pick up sticks, Five Stones, Kuti kuti and Capteh during recess.
Truly The Singapore Way!
