06 Feb 2015

6 February 2015

Dear Parents/Guardians

The school will be commemorating Total Defence Day on 13 February 2015, an annual event which marks the surrender of Singapore to the Japanese during World War 2. 

2015 marks 50 years of both Singapore’s independence and the formation of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF). The theme this year, Our SAF : Giving Strength to Our Nation, recognises the contribution of the SAF to the nation and serves as a reminder to all Singaporean that the responsibility of defending Singapore lies not just with the SAF but also with all Singaporeans.

The Total Defence Committee has planned various activities for your child/ward to learn more about the significance of Total Defence.

My Special Tribute

Writing the tribute allows the students to identify people who have played their part in Total Defence and create awareness to others about people who have played their part in Total Defence.

 

Students will submit their tributes during recess on 13th Feb for them to be displayed.
