3/8/2018 - Clean Plate Campaign 

Each year, 791,000 tonnes of food is wasted in Singapore – this is equivalent to 3500 MRT trains! To dispose of these food waste, it costs a whopping S$61 million! And our landfill on Pulau Semakau is running out of space. To educate our students on the importance of reducing food wastage and to do our part for the environment, our school participated in the Clean Plate Campaign organised by Food from the Heart (FFTH) since 2016. By doing so, we want our students to know that everyone can play a part for the environment.  Every year, prior to the actual clean plate counting day, we will have relevant assembly talks and posters put up around the school to raise awareness. The FFTH organisers will be present during the students’ recesses each year to share meaningful ways with them on reducing food waste. Our students are also encouraged and rewarded with a token when they return plates without any food waste to the plates’ collection area in the canteen. Together as a school, we can all make a collective effort to reduce food waste!

30/07/2018 - Lower Primary Games Day

Our Lower Primary Games Day (LPGD) cum PAL Showcase took place this year on the Monday of 30th July 2018, between 1040 and 1320. Prior to the commencement of the games, parents were cordially invited to view the PAL Showcase put up by the P1 & P2 students, from 1040 to 1110. Our student presenters were on site to explain their masterpieces completed during the PAL Visual Arts gallery walk.  Ms Gracelyn Ong, our SH Aesthetics, outlined the importance of the PAL curriculum and shared how a typical PAL lesson looked like via engaging skit. Photos and videos of our PAL Outdoor Education demonstrated the vibrancy of the PAL lessons. Thereafter, our lower primary students exemplified their sporting abilities in a series of fun-filled, competitive and exhilarating games. Our parents gamely tried the Parent-Child Race using the novel scooter-board with much enthusiasm and vigour. The event culminated with broad grins and strong camaraderie forged among the lower primary students.

14/07/2018 - Camp ENRICH

For this year's edition of Outdoor Adventure Camp, we have combined both cohorts of P4 & P5 students. The 3 Day / 2 Night Outdoor Adventure Camp was held at Labrador Outdoor Adventure Learning Centre, from Thursday, 12th July 2018 to Saturday, 14th July 2018. All P4 & P5 students were granted opportunities to participate in enriching and engaging outdoor activities such as the perennial favourites - challenge rope course, rock-climbing, zip-line and for the first time, the Artificial Caving System. Stamfordians had to demonstrate their ruggedness and resilience in living outdoors in an unfamiliar yet safe environment, away from the comforts of their homes. The camp instructors alongside the P4 & P5 Form-Teachers continuously facilitated students' learning in both their social-emotional competencies as well as leadership skills. All our Stamfordians returned safely back to school, pleased with the feat of completing their camp programme.

04/04/18 - International Friendship Day

International Friendship Day (IFD) will be on 6 April. This year’s theme is “Celebrating the ASEAN Community”. Stamford Primary is blessed to have a rich and diverse student population where many of our students come from ASEAN countries.  Through collaboration with our parent volunteers, the Philippine Embassy and the Thai Association, we will have a series of activities and exhibitions for our students to learn more about one another’s culture within ASEAN over a nine-day period from 28 March to 10 April


Celebrating the ASEAN Community - 
Stamford Primary Students' Design of ASEAN Stamps

As part of our International Friendship Day commemoration this year, we held an ASEAN Stamp Design Competition for our Primary 4 to Primary 6 students to raise awareness about ASEAN and the importance of having strong ties among ASEAN members. Our students impressed us with their creativity and we are proud to feature the top 10 designs. Pictures of their art works were also sent to the ASEAN Secretariat who lauded our students' efforts and published them on the ASEAN Facebook page. You can click here to view their Facebook post. Well done, Stamfordians!
