Blind Date with a Book

The Reading Haven Library organised the activity on Valentine’s Day to raise the curiosity and interests of students to read books of different genres. About 100 books were wrapped in colourful papers and displayed at the canteen during recess time. The students were intrigued as they experienced the joy of borrowing a book without knowing its title or genre.

Singapore Secondary Schools Debating Championships 2017 

The ELDDS debaters took part in the Singapore Secondary Schools Debating Championships 2017 and won the round against Hwa Chong International School with a score of 3-0. The motion of that round was “This House believes that National Service should be introduced to women in Singapore.” and we had to oppose the motion.

After our debaters lost in round one of the championships, they had no confidence in themselves after they knew who their proponents were for round two of the championships. With encouragements and guidance from the teachers, the debaters took the courage and outperformed themselves during the debate against Hwa Chong International School. Not only were they confident, they were able to succinctly point out the clashes of the debate and engaged with what their proponents were debating about. The three judges unanimously agreed that our students were confident speakers and could engage in differing points of view very well.

O’rianna Yew from Class 3A was also chosen as the best speaker for that round.

English Language & Literature Week 2017

With the aim to inculcate a love for the English Language in a fun manner, the English Language & Literature Week 2017 was launched in the second week of Term 2. The theme, A Story To Tell, was chosen as students had to read and create stories using words and pictures. It was also selected in conjunction with the school’s 60th Anniversary, where one of the games, Amazing Race, quizzed students about the school’s history. On top of listening to interesting facts about the English Language and Literature during morning assembly, engaging activities such as Scrabble Showdown and Flash Fiction were held.
