Tampines Primary School also welcomed and hosted a group of 8 staff and 20 pupils from Kwang Hwa Primary School (Penang) on 1st September 2014. This is the 2nd year where both schools have such exchange programme. This exchange programme provided opportunities for both groups of pupils to be immersed in an environment where they could broaden their knowledge of other cultures and also to build their character.
During the one day exchange programme, all Kwang Hwa Primary School pupils were given the opportunity to interact with TPS pupils and learn more about Singapore history, culture and customs. Our pupils were assigned to host a buddy to help eased them into the school routine, lessons and also to familiarize them with the school environment. We hoped that the friendship between the 2 schools will continue to grow from strength to strength.
