Chinese Culture- Learning and Immersion for Excellence (C2-LIfE)
Key Programmes / Activities
The Tao Nan SAP Flagship Programme offers many opportunities to imbue our students with the richness of the Chinese culture through various events and activities. The celebration of Chinese New Year and the Mid-Autumn Festival promotes the cultural richness of the language. The MTL (Mother Tongue Language) Fortnight Programme provides an authentic platform to further enhance the learning of the Chinese language and culture.
For the lower primary students, introductory lessons on Chinese Calligraphy, Chinese Painting and Art & Craft are incorporated in the Art curriculum. For the upper primary students, they are taught to appreciate the beauty of the Chinese Language and culture through assembly programmes, mass lectures and the reading of school-based Chinese Culture books. To explore the Chinese culture in greater depths, activities such as Chinese Opera Workshop, Cross Talk Performance, Tea Appreciation and theatrical performances are also organised for students at the different grade levels.
For a group of selected students who have attained language proficiency in the Chinese language and shown interest in the Chinese Culture, Tao Nan offers the Bi-Cultural Chinese Elective Programme (BiCEP) to cater to the needs of this identified echelon.
Last but not least, we have an extensive exchange and immersion programme for our upper primary students to encourage out-of-classroom learning experiences and provide opportunities for exposure at the international arena. In the fun-filled Culture Immersion Programmes, students meet the local pupils, taste the local cuisine and get familiar with Chinese customs and way of life. Regular trips to China and Taiwan provide our students with enriched learning experiences where they are completely immersed into a Chinese language and cultured environment.
