Key Programmes

Learning Journey to Taman Warisan

Our Primary 4 students visited Malay Language Centre of Singapore. The objectives of tour are to enable students to know more about the Malay society in the past and appreciate its heritage. Students were exposed to rich and insightful exhibitions and programmes.

 

Learning Journey to Woodlands Regional Library

Our P5 Malay students went to Woodlands Regional Library to watch a play entitled ‘Titah Kontemporari’. The objective of the play was to reiterate the importance of conversing in Standard Malay Language in students’ daily conversations. Students learnt new words and were exposed to an array of cultural performances in the play. It was indeed a fulfilling experience for all students involved.

 

Languages Fiesta took place from 27 July to 6 August. It was an inaugural event in collaboration with the English Department and Mother Tongue Department. Due to Covid-19, we had to ensure that students were able to carry out the activities in a fun yet safe manner.

To allow students to appreciate the Mother Tongue Languages, the different levels engaged in a variety of experiential activities.

We hope to instill in our students a love for the languages through these diversified experiences.

The Malay Language reading programme is carried out to cater to the low progress students who have difficulties in reading. Resources used in this programme are crafted and aligned based on difficulty level of the reading abilities of students. It is conducted every Thursday and Friday with the help of our P4 and P5 good reader buddies.

The students are given the opportunity to take part in various competitions conducted by external organisations. One of which is the national composition writing organized by EDN Media Pte Ltd.

In addition to that, the 2020 National Singapore Translation competition which was jointly organized by The Singapore Malay Language Council in collaboration with Oasis Primary School was organized in order to foster bilingual proficiency amongst our young Malay Language ambassadors. These are the students are also actively participating in national level competitions conducted by the Malay Language Centre of Singapore.

This programme is conducted every Wednesday during Mother Tongue period. Our students are encouraged to borrow Malay books from our school library and read books from the different genres. Apart from this, they will have to complete a set of fun-filled activities relating to the books that they have read. For lower primary classes, the teachers will introduce and read new books to the students to foster the love for reading Malay books in them.
