National Day carnival
On Friday, 8th August, our school celebrated our nation's 49th birthday. A National Day carnival was held with all of our CCA groups including Biz Club, Shimano bicycle group and Tamil Language Unit running stalls that saw our students, teaching and administrative staff taking part in Frisbee throwing, giant Sumo wrestling, Band Hero Challenge, while enjoying sumptuous food and engaging in many fun filled activities. The highlight of the day was a dunking-machine, which saw our Principal and VP along with a few other teachers getting dunked, all in the name of raising funds for our needy students.
By organizing a National Day carnival and in taking part in events during our school based National Day celebrations we hope that our students will take pride in our national identity, have a sense of belonging to Singapore and be committed to nation building. We pride our selves as a closely-knit community that cares and it is heartwarming to see the Shuqunite family getting together to commemorate our National day while doing what we can to raise funds for our needy students.

MTL activities (CL Unit)
On 22nd of July, four orphans from Malawi came to Shuqun Secondary School for an exchange programme. They were in town on an eight-week school exchange programme organised by the Singapore African Children Care Centre, a local non-profit body that aims to build homes for African children and provide them with an education. As part of their trip here, they visited 42 schools to share their stories and their Chinese learning journey, and our school was one of the schools that they visited.
The African teenagers sang Chinese songs like Voices from the Heart (Xiao Ren Wu De Xin Sheng), a popular 1980s 'xinyao' song, as well as songs from popular Taiwanese artiste Jay Chou. They enunciated the lyrics effortlessly in perfect Taiwanese-accented Mandarin. During the hour long performance, they not only recited Chinese poetry but also shared their aspirations, stories and dreams with Shuqun students. Students from Shuqun Wushu team and the African youths exchanged pointers in Chinese martial arts by performing an item each.
It was both an enriching and inspiring session for both the teachers and the students. The students were motivated and encouraged to make the most of the opportunities around them to learn Chinese.
