Racial Harmony Day 2019

On 17 July 2019, CHIJ (Katong) Primary commemorated Racial Harmony Day to mark the anniversary of the 1964 racial riots. This year, the theme is The Singapore Connection. The celebration was about instilling the importance of acceptance and inclusiveness. Students were encouraged to come dressed in their various ethnic costumes.

There was a plethora of activities during recess which included exciting traditional games, hands-on activities and the sampling of traditional food. In addition to the activities organised during Racial Harmony Day, the message of societal harmony is also consistently reiterated. The celebration created more awareness among our students on the diversified cultural heritage present in school and the need to work and play peacefully with one another aligning with one of the six National Education messages which is: "We must preserve racial and religious harmony."
