Experiential Learning Journey - Pongal Experience
Pongal is a harvest festival which originated in India. In Singapore, the annual Pongal festival is a month-long celebration with highlights such as a street light-up and a mini spectacle of cows, bulls, calves and goats in Little India.
On 19th January 2018, the P4 and P6 TL pupils joined in the celebration at Hastings Road and had a great time of fun and learning with various hands-on activities. The finale was a song and dance item.
Pupils had a close-up of cows, calves and goats and could not contain the excitement!
