FPPS Chinese Teachers Featured on "Thumbs-Up" Publication 

Latest edition of the "Thumbs-Up" publication under Singapore Press Holding featured our school's Chinese teachers conducting a drama lesson on "Chang-Er and the Rabbit" with our Primary 1 pupils. In a twist to the story, pupils needed to think of ways to help Chang-Er in deciding whether she should forgive the Rabbit as the latter has eaten the mooncake meant to be kept for the Mid-Autumn celebration. Through the lesson, pupils learned to apply "Graciousness", one of the school values, in their words and actions.

Key messages about the SG50 HOME e-book


The SG50 HOME e-book is a birthday gift from all students to Singapore, in return for the SG50 ‘Building My SG’ Lego set that was given to them. 

 It is the collective effort of students from all primary and secondary schools, junior colleges/centralised institute, special education schools as well as Singapore International School (Hong Kong). Students have put in a lot of effort for this project and have spent considerable amount of time doing research. 

 Through this project, students have connected with the pioneer generation and gained appreciation for their contributions and sacrifices. We hope that they have been inspired and will create a better future for themselves and for Singapore.   

 The ebook is available for free at the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Readers can download it by searching “SG50 HOME”, or view the web version at
