Racial Harmony Day: Amazing Race

Article contributed by Mdm. Vanessa Lim who's son is in Sec1. - 22 Jul 09

TK celebrated the Racial Harmony Day with a variety of programmes on the 22nd July. Although the duration of the event was shortened and there was no mass assembly due to the outbreak of H1N1, the spirit was high. This year, about 20 parents in total took part in the event, facilitating 2 sessions of KDB (Know, Do, Be) titled "Fuzion Fest" and "Fabrix", as well as supervising "Amazing Race" to help promote the importance of racial harmony.

The amazing race was held within the school compound instead of outside school (see below the original planned route) due to the rain. The 'last minute' arrangements kept the teachers busy by allocating 4 different checkpoints for 4 different cultural groups namely Eurasian, Hindis, Muslims and Peranakans. Students were having fun checking out each group's differences through 'question and Answer' , 'Crossword Puzzle' and identifying the food displayed. The original planned routes - The amazing race was supposed to be carried out along the 4 check points namely
1) Masjid Khalid Mosque at Onon Road;
2) Sri Senpaga Vinayagar Temple (Joo Chiat Road);
3) Peranakan House (Koon Seng Road); and
4) Eurasian Community House (Koon Seng road).02 July 2008
