Mother Tongue Fortnight

Mother Tongue Fortnight is a key annual event to provide an engaging environment for the learning of Mother Tongue Languages (MTL). A variety of activities is organised to encourage the pupils to actively use their MTL and appreciate their MTL and associated culture. This year we had activities such as Traditional Tamil Games, Murukku making station and competitions. Competitions included Poetry Recitation, Story Telling, Jingles and Touch Typing.

Reading Mum

To help the upper primary (P4 – P6) pupils who need help in reading will be selected for Reading Mum Programme. This is conducted on a weekly basis where parent volunteers will come on Wednesdays from 2pm – 3pm helping these pupils in their reading. 

External Competitions

In light of providing exposure, Tamil Department provides the opportunity for interested pupils to participate in external competitions and events. External competitions provide a vibrant platform for pupils motivating them to be confident learners. This year our pupils took part in Kolam Ayer CC Tamil Language competition.Our pupils also performed a singing item for “Music in the City” event in Ngee Ann City Mall. 

Learning Journey

Tamil department plans for appropriate learning journeys according to the levels. This is to educate our children on the cultural nuances of Tamil Language, instilling them with the love and care for their Mother Tongue.
