Term 1:

Buddy Reading Programme

This programme aimed to instil reading habits as well as aid the pupils in learning to read well. Pupils learnt to blend sounds correctly to form words assisted by their buddies with the facilitation of the teachers. This programme not only instilled better reading skills among the pupils but also encouraged the buddies to be an active contributor to the society, in line with the desired outcomes of education.

P1 & P2 Speech and Drama Programme

This programme aimed to develop language and communication skills through incorporating role-playing, improvisation and language games which led to a drama performance. Through these activities, students were more affluent and confident speakers. Apart from that, they were also equipped with the Social and Emotional Competencies – skills to prepare them for the 21st century demands. The P1 and P2 pupils went through a series of sessions to equip them with skills for language and communication. With the knowledge gained, pupils showcased a drama performance. Parents were invited to celebrate their milestones in learning.

P5 & P6 Creative Writing Programme

The programme aimed to develop language and writing skills in pupils. The P5 and P6 pupils learnt to develop their stories through the characters and plot in order to expand the storyline. This programme also aimed to inspire pupils to develop lifelong appreciation for the language. Throughout the eight sessions, pupils were taught on how to develop a story using a mind map for pre-writing activity, various styles of writing to engage readers and incorporating figurative language to make their stories more interesting. This programme was also further supported by application of the strategies learnt during curriculum hours.


Term 2:

P4 i-Trail


The programme encouraged the appreciation of the culture and tradition of the Chinese, Malays and Indians. The P4 pupils learnt about the history and culture of the various racial groups through i-Trail software via
iPads by visiting Little India, Chinatown and Kampong Glam. Through this programme, pupils not only gain knowledge but a better sense of respect of the three races maintaining unity in diversity. In addition, these pupils were also equipped with the Social and Emotional Competencies such as Social Awareness and Relationship Management.

P1-P6 MTL Fortnight

Every year, GRPS will dedicate two weeks for MTL Fortnight Programme. This programme gives the opportunity for pupils to do various activities to instil the love of learning about the mother tongue language and culture. Pupils were more confident and proficient communicators of the Mother Tongue language. To promote this, 
the ML unit had prepared various interesting activities for the pupils. They were:-

1) P1 Wau Making 

2) P2 Making and Playing Chapteh

3) P3 Batik Painting

4) P5 Making of Bunga Rampai

5) P6 Making of Bunga Manggar

Apart from these, we also had level wide activities such as the P3-P6 Writing Competition, Introduction 
of Malay Folk Tales in CCE lessons and Recess Activity where the pupils learnt how to tie the kain samping. 
The Malay pupils enjoyed learning about Malay language and culture in a fun way.


Term 3:

Hari Raya Concert

To celebrate the festive season of Hari Raya Puasa, selected pupils from P1 to P6 put up various performances for the school. The concert was opened with a spectacular Silat performance by 4 pupils. The Malay dancers were graceful in perfoming their Hari Raya song. Pupils were also entertained by the interaction activity where a few students got to dress up their teachers with the Malay traditional costumes. The most interesting part was the finale where we had some teachers parading their beautiful Malay traditional costumes and singing the Hari Raya song together with the P1 pupils. The concert ended with the beautiful recitation of the Sajak by our principal, Mr Chua.

Hari Raya House Visit

Selected P4 MTL pupils were given the opportunity to experience Hari Raya house visiting in order to learn more about the common Hari Raya tradition. We were very thankful to our parent volunteers, Mdm Dirah and Mr Khaizuran, who welcomed us to their beautiful home. The pupils learnt more about the significance of Hari Raya Puasa through the informative sharing done by Mr Khaizuran. The students also got to enjoy some festive Hari Raya cookies.

Story Telling Showcase

The P3 and P4 pupils went through a story telling showcase during the MT curriculum time. With the theme Harmony, pupils prepared a story to showcase to their peers.
