Eleven Primary 5 Greenridgeans took part in the Haiku Contest 2016 at Sea Aquarium, Sentosa on 16thJanuary 2016. They wrote and illustrated haiku based on the theme ‘Morning’. Our Greenridgeans listened attentively to the speaker and learnt tips on haiku writing skills.
For two consecutive years, the students have taken part in the Moo-O Awards. In this competition, students are expected to write a script and create a video based on a story. The students had a whale of a time producing their video clips.
National Spelling Bee
National Spelling Championship 2016
15 of our students 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.
Spelling Bee Competition
The Spelling Bee is a yearly competition which is organised to promote the fun of learning spelling amongst our students. The audience also has a chance to spell using their mini whiteboards.
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. Justin has been leading the debate team for several years.
In the first round, the team was up against Canberra Primary School. Unfortunately, we were defeated. However that did not dampen our spirits. In the face of defeat, it strengthened our resolve and we managed to beat Bukit Panjang Primary in the second round.
We were also emerged as the winners in the third round against Balestier Primary. Furthermore, Naomi Tanzil and Tghee Khee were voted as Best Speakers by the judges.
The debaters accomplished great achievements despite the short period of time we were given to prepare the topics. It was truly an outstanding accomplishment. Kudos to all!
