Chinese Culture- Learning and Immersion for Excellence (C2-LIfE)
Key Programmes / Activities
The Tao Nan SAP Flagship Programme has created opportunities to introduce our pupils to the rich Chinese culture through various Chinese-related events and programmes.
The school celebrates Chinese New Year and Mid-Autumn Festival as well as organises MTL (Mother Tongue Language) Fortnight Programme to provide platforms for pupils to actively learn the Chinese Language and Chinese culture.
Introductory lessons on Chinese Calligraphy, Chinese Painting and Art & Craft are incorporated in the Art curriculum for P1 to P3 pupils. The focus for upper primary pupils is on imparting the essential knowledge of Chinese Culture. Activities such as Chinese Drama Day Camp and theatrical performances are organised for pupils, exposing them to the rudiments of Chinese Drama. P6 pupils have the opportunity to appreciate Chinese Tea Culture in a Teahouse. School-based Chinese Culture and History books were also published for P4 to P6 pupils.
For a group of selected pupils who have attained the language proficiency and competency, and have shown great interest in Chinese Culture, Tao Nan offers 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 pupils to encourage out-of-classroom learning experiences and provide opportunities for exposure at the international arena. Trips to China and Taiwan provide our pupils with enriched learning experiences in a native Chinese speaking environment, strengthening their love for the Chinese Culture.
