2018 International Friendship Day

~ Article contributed by Kiran Nathani

The school celebrated International Friendship Day (IFD) on Thursday, 05 April 2018. The theme this year was ASEAN countries. Patsy, Kim Meng, Janice, Pop and Kiran from the PSG headed this event.

There was an overwhelming response to our call for sponsorship and we are happy to announce that in a matter of days, 30 vouchers, along with a lot of scrumptious goodies were received. Thank you parents, for all your love and support!

Other than the huge International Friendship Day banner, posters were placed at the canteen and around the school. To help students understand more on ASEAN countries and cultures, ASEAN country flags and small strips of colourful papers with fun facts were place on the tables in the canteen.

On the day of the event, 30 parent volunteers came to school as early as 7:30am. The Instagram contest was a hit amongst the students as they could put on ethnic costumes and take pictures using the props provided. 

Students participated enthusiastically and vouchers were awarded to students with the best pictures and captions.

The canteen became livelier during recess time as music of popular songs from ASEAN countries were played in the background. Students were seen swarming to another popular booth - “Quiz and Win”.  100 questions based on ASEAN countries that were posed and students who could answer these questions were rewarded with their favourite goodies.

It was a great opportunity for PSG to work with the school to organise this fun and meaningful event. 

Once again, TKSS Rocks!
