Eleven Primary 5 Greenridgeans took part in the Haiku Contest 2016 at Sea Aquarium, Sentosa on 16th January 2016. They wrote and drew haiku based on the theme ‘Morning’.
Our Greenridgeans listened attentively to the speaker and learnt tips on haiku writing skills. It was indeed a rewarding and enriching experience for the pupils.
National Spelling Bee
National Spelling Championship 2016
15 of our pupils from the Primary 4 to 6 levels were selected to take part in the preliminary round of the annual National Spelling Championship organised by RHB and Straits Times. Although they did not make it to the zonal round this time, the children learnt a lot from the experience and hoped to brush up on their spelling skills.
Primary 3 Spelling Bee 2016
The department organises level Spelling Bee Competitions to promote the learning of spelling amongst our pupils. The top spellers from each level are awarded prizes and certificates.
Earlene Ng Yu Hui (6 Humility), Naomi Tanzil (6Humilty), Tay Tghee Khee (6 Humility), James Ang Jun Jie (6 Respect) and Ong Eugene (6 Humility) took part in the Wits and Words 2016, organized by the Curriculum Planning and Development Division, MOE.
The debate team was guided by Mdm Harpal Kaur and Justin Lau, an ex- Greenridgean.
In the first round, the team was up against Canberra Primary School. In the face of defeat, the team strengthened its resolve and it managed to beat Bukit Panjang Primary in the second round.
We also emerged as the winners in the third round against Balestier Primary. Naomi Tanzil and Tghee Khee were voted as Best Speakers by the judges.
The debaters did well under pressure despite the short period of time they were given to prepare the topics. It was truly an outstanding accomplishment. Kudos to all!
