Deepavali Celebrations 2017

17th October 2017

Besides the legend of Narakasura, there are many others reasons for celebrating Deepavali. All of them point to one common theme – the victory of Good over evil.

During morning assembly, pupils enjoyed a half-hour concert. Our Primary 1s and 2s, together with the CS pupils ushered the festive mood into the hall, donning colourful clothes as they did a beautiful catwalk, much to the delight of all who were watching them. Our P3 to P6 students and teachers performed various dances such as the Bharatanatyam and Bhangra which reflect the joy of Deepavali. The morning's celebrations concluded with an insightful slideshow presentation on Deepavali by our student emcee.

Pupils and staff had a lovely time watching these performances and learning more about the festival. It was a sight to behold with beautiful festive decorations adorning parts of our school.

Make a Difference Programme

15th - 24th May 2017
Our Learning for Life Programme, 'Service Innovation through Design Thinking', aims to evoke in our students the desire to serve as compassionate leaders. 

Using a spiral approach, Design Thinking is explicitly taught in a progressive manner across all levels and through age-appropriate, authentic platforms such as the Values-in-Action projects. Students learn that they have the power to make a significant difference in the lives of others which transcends just merely feeling sympathy for them.

From 15 to 24 May 2017, a group of 19 Primary 5 and 6 students embarked on our M.A.D. (Make A Difference) Programme, an extension of our broad-based programme for 'Service Innovation through Design Thinking'. These students were given the opportunity to collaborate with school identified partner in the community to design and implement solutions to authentic problems. 

They went on a learning journey to a local restaurant to find out issues they were facing. From the interview they conducted, problems on food wastage, which is a global concern, was surfaced. In the subsequent days of the programme, the students researched on food wastage and brainstormed on ideas to solve the identified problems. 

Through the Design Thinking process, the students reused food scraps to create prototypes such as useful household products - a table lamp, a card holder, coasters and a utensils holder.


CCPS Celebrated Environment Week

17th - 19th May 2017

Pupils were treated to an entertaining and educational skit on the importance of trees as part of a series of assembly programmes to raise environmental awareness. 

They also had fun taking part in craft activities with recyclables during recess. Pupils created plastic flowers out of used plastic bags. On leaf-shaped pledges, they also pledged to do their part to save the Earth. 

Enthusiastic in their contributions towards the school's recycling efforts, pupils brought plastic containers and bottles to deposit into the school's recycling bins. These efforts also counted in the recycling competition open to all classes.


Library Activities - Month of May

This exciting month of May, the CCPS Library features books that have been made into movies! 

Pupils have been borrowing and reading books such as Dr Seuss' 'The Car in the Hat', Roald Dahl's 'The BFG', 'The Witches' and 'Fantastic Mr Fox', classics like 'The Jungle Book', 'Alice in Wonderland', Oliver Twist', Around the World in 80 Days', 'Sherlock Holmes', and popular fiction like 'Spiderwick Chronicles', 'Bridge to Terabithia' and 'Smurfs'.

Pupils were also spotted doing the library activity worksheets on 'The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend'. These pupils walked away with some prizes for their attempts at reading the book and completing the activity. 

The library also conducted several storytelling sessions in Term 2 on Tuesdays during the 9.40am recess and on Wednesdays during the 9.10am recess. More such engaging programmes are in the pipeline for Semester 2.

The library is indeed a place where time is well-spent unwinding with a good book, as some of our pupils do while waiting for their afternoon activities or while waiting for their parents to pick them up from school.


Learning Journey - P1 Social Studies Trail - Exploring our Neighbourhood

A Distinctive School Experience at CCPS

To make the day even more meaningful and memorable, our P1 and P2 pupils played buddies to our guests. Thrilled to have this opportunity, they enthusiastically guided their newfound kindergarten friends through the process of buying food from the canteen. 

Tucking into the delicious food, they bonded through play and conversation.18056607_212141129285363_158026205546531382_o.jpg
