Xishanites in Action
Chinese New Year Recess Activities
Gearing up for the New Year! Grateful to have the parent volunteers to be involved in our Recess Activities!
CCAs have started!
The afternoons will be bustling with many different activities again!
Our P6 students literally took a jog down memory lane with their buddies as they jogged around the school as part of their Grat-duation Run. Winding past memorable school landmarks touched many students to reflect on their journey with Xishan Primary, filling them with gratitude for what the teachers had done for them.
Before the run, our Principal Mrs Quek spoke to them and said, “The run is also symbolic of the journey they are undertaking in life. Life is not about how fast you go or whether you had a good start, nor it is about comparing with how others are running ahead or behind you. It is really about how meaningful and purposeful you are undertaking the journey so as to go further. Keep going.”
Mrs Quek together with our Vice-Principals Ms Chua, Mrs Pawa and teachers then sportingly joined our students in their run!💪
We wish our graduating students the best as they progress to their next milestone!

Primary 4 Malay Language Immersion to Kampong Buangkok
Established in 1956, Kampong Lorong Buangkok is the last surviving kampong (Malay term for village) on Singapore’s mainland. The kampong was also known as Selak Kain, which meant ‘hitching up one’s skirt’ as people used to hitch their skirts up to wade through floods whenever the kampong experienced flash floods in the 20th century.The Malay Language students made Bunga Rampai and Kuih Abok abok as part of the activities arranged for them. They are also immersed in the camaraderie and kampong spirit while on a trail to the kampong houses and garden whereby they learned about the names of the plants that were most popularly growned during the kampong days.

The week-long celebration of English Language Fest saw the Xishanites engaged in several exciting activities. From ICT games to reciting tongue twisters and getting first hand experience in live broadcasting and reporting, the children had so much fun! Besides the activities, Xishanites were also tickled as they watched their English Language teachers featured in an in-house produced video on using standard English to understand and be understood.
