MT Fortnight


The objective of the MT Fortnight is to create an environment that encouraged our pupils to use Mother Tongue languages and appreciate the heritage and culture associated with these languages. This year the theme of the Fortnight was Food and Festivals. Thus pupils experienced food and festival related booths.


During the fortnight, pupils visited various booths where they had the opportunity to try making mooncakes, ketupat and kolam.


In classes, the Malay pupils applied their language skills in various activities. The P4 malay pupils was exposed to the art of wayang kulit to tell stories. The P5 students learnt newscasting. With the aid of ipads, pupils gather information for their newscast about the various booth.  The Malay department introduced QR Code  to pupils to find information.  The QR code was placed at strategic places. The P6 pupils experienced the usage of pantun in an authentic scenario.


To motivate pupils to excel in the MT languages, pupils took part or watched their peers perform in inter-level competitions such creative story telling, newcasting, poetry writing and recitation.


The event was a success. Pupils enjoyed themselves. The event ends with a Hari Raya Performance by the SriWarisan Performancing Arts Company.
