Learning Journey to Heritage Centre and Pongal Bazzar




To enrich our students with cross cultural understanding, the Mother Tongue Languages Department organized the Primary 5 learning journey to the Heritage Centre and Pongal Bazzar at Little India on 12 January 2016. At the Heritage Centre, Concordians had a chance to learn about the history, development and achievements of the Indian community in Singapore and Southeast Asia. Concordians also had the opportunity to learn about the Indian harvest festival at the Pongal Bazzar. They participated in various activities such as traditional dance, coconut leave tying, spinning the top and making of pongal rice. To engage our Concordians, they were given iPads to take photos and videos. These videos/photos will be used for follow-up activities during the Mother Tongue Fortnight on 1 February to 12 February.
