Term 1 Week 7 was dedicated to the commemoration of Total Defence Day. To expose our students to current affairs, lesson packages were developed with reference to The Straits Times IN Total Defence Edition to increase our students’ awareness of real issues and threats happening in and out of Singapore.
To further enhance their learning, the school was privileged to have the Singapore Police Force (SPF) presenting a talk to our students on SGSecure and sharing with them the possible threats Singapore faces. The SPF also educated the students on how they should respond when they encounter such threats: Run, Hide and Tell. The students and teachers definitely benefited from the presentation and were better equipped with the knowledge and skills to react to such events.
Furthermore, our Secondary 4 and 5 CCE Ambassadors put on their thinking caps to come up with a Total Defence Day Quiz for the school. The questions enabled our students to acquire knowledge of the different aspects of Total Defence. After all, it is the effort of every single person in Singapore to keep the nation safe and secure. Together, we keep Singapore strong.
