P5 National Education Show 2016

As part of National Education since 1997, all Primary 5 students are to attend the NE Show, which is essentially a preview of the National Day Parade. The objective of staging this show is to evoke a sense of patriotism amongst the students and to impart to them the significance of National Day.

Racial Harmony Day 2016

Ai Tong School commemorated Racial Harmony Day on 21st July 2016. Staff and pupils came in ethnic costumes to celebrate the occasion together.

 

This year, the theme for Racial Harmony Day (RHD) is Our Cultural Heritage. Taking pride in one another's cultural heritage strengthens our collective identity. This contributes to building a resilient community which is vigilant and in times of crisis, responds decisively, recovers quickly and emerges stronger as one people.

We need to remain open to international flow of trade, ideas and talent which is critical to ASEAN’s growth as a region, and Singapore’s continued success as a nation.

Total Defence Day 2016 – Together We Keep Singapore Strong

This year, the theme for Total Defence Day (TDD) is Together We Keep Singapore Strong.

TD 2016 aims to strengthen our resilience as a nation by

(1) Reaffirming our shared attitudes, values and instincts as a nation; borne out of our collective will to continue keeping Singapore safe, secure and special.

(2) Celebrating our common identity as Singaporeans; rooted in a strong sense of self, and committed to building a cohesive society ready to face the future together. These will strengthen every Singaporean’s pride and confidence in Singapore at the start of the next 50 years, and the belief that everyone can play a part in different aspects of our defence.

 

Our school commemorated Total Defence day on 15 Feb 2016, Monday. Total Defence Day serves to remind our students that Singapore is defensible and is worth defending, and we ourselves must defend Singapore.
