This National Day, we commemorated Singapore's birthday by doing a special craft -- a keychain! The children were allowed to choose from 4 iconic buildings in Singapore and were given a cut out of their choice. Then, they coloured it with bright colours and applied a layer of black paint on it! Lastly, when the paint dried, they used the scraping technique to scrape on some designs.
Our students celebrated the Mid Autumn festival with lantern craft. They used paper plate, coloured lantern paper and decorated with oil pastel, coloured pencil and markers. These are some of their wonderful lanterns. A bright moon and stars twinkle and shine. Wishing you a merry Mid-Autumn Festival, bliss and happiness.
