St John’s School held its annual Kindergarten Open Day yesterday. It was a day to showcase and celebrate the achievements of the pupils.
Member of the school’s Board of Governors Marjory Toidy Ng was the guest of honour. In a speech to officiate the event, she highlighted the teachers’ contributions to the pupils’ learning and expressed her gratitude to the teaching staff.
“Because every child develops at a different pace with individual strengths and talents, we continually strive to meet the needs of all learners through small group and guided instruction. By establishing classroom routines and encouraging family involvement in school life, your child is part of a caring classroom and school community.”
To enliven the day, various activities were conducted including a Chinese song performance by Year 2 students of the school, a fashion show competition featuring reused material for Kindergarten 1 to 3 pupils, a play of the Little Red Riding Hood by Kindergarten 3 pupils, a Nasyid performance by Year 1 students as well as a Malay Language skit by the Year 3 students.
Sugarbun mascots also made a special appearance during the event.
There were also booths and stalls by local businesses selling food and drinks, apart from displays crafted by the students of the school made out of recyclable materials that showcased students’ creativity.
