The activities in the SS room was fun yet meaningful. We learnt the flags of different countries through playing SNap game. It was great to be able to celebrate International Friendship Day with friends in school.

I have seen lots of students from other countries,some games and activities and I also have seen the thing that everyone keeps buying,the Japanese water balloon yo-yo.There was also a match between our TKPS(Telok Kurau) and their TKPS(Tanjong Katong).But in the end,we lost.I did'nt really go anywhere because I stayed at the canteen sitting on the chair talkinfg with friends.I also received a coupon for a free milk with a 'flavor straw' of either banana,chocolate or strawberry and I got strawberry flavor.They also sold some foods like curry puffs,sushi and some other foods from other countries.I had quite some fun but the thing that ruined my fun was the rain from the cold weather.After see performances or something like that(I was'nt there to watch so i don't know what kind of performance they saw),we all lined up at the entrance of TKPS(Tanjong Katong),waited for the bus and went back to the school.:)

The school there is so much better and bigger than our school.they have much more CCA`s than our school too.Such as fencing,cheerleading and so much more which i forgoted.I like the part of my trip when Jin Rui got jealous of the dancing performances.Ha Ha Ha!Also we can play basketball in the rain unlike our school.If I can go back in time to Pri 1, i would like to join Tkps.(Not Telok Kurau but Tanjong Katong)

I think that Tanjong Katong Primary School is quite big and there is a carnival held that too.The part that i enjoy is playing with some of their student soccer.I have learnt to interact with them and teamwork.I also used my money to buy some ballon yo-yo. They filled the ballons with water and tie a long string at the opening.It was great to be able to celebrate International Friendship Day with other school.

It was fun there as there are many activities such as a friendly soccer match, performances and games! There are items to buy such as Water Balloon YoYo. It was a meaningful trip to TKPS (Tanjong Katong Primary School). We also learn that teamwork is very important in sports. It was a great trip.

The visit to Tanjong Katong Primary School was great but too bad it was raining.It is brilliant as Tanjong Katong Primary School held a carnival andinvited other schools to join on International Friendship Day.Some of the boys played a soccer match with the boys from Tanjong Katong.Some basketball and soccer players came for the autograph session.The girls were eventually wathing the performances in the concert.I bought a water balloon and brought it home .After the concert,we board the bus and waved goodbye to Tanjong Katong Primary School.

On the international friendship day i visted Tanjong Katong Primry School.I saw some performances there.There were Hip hop dance,latin and chinese dance.The show was so nice that i somehow did not blink my eye when i was watching the performances.Oh ya, before the performance i played basketball with my friends and i play the water balloon and i even brought to balloon home.Altough i can play basketball in our school but the court there is really bigger than our school so i really had fun there... And my friend play a sccocer match with the pupils there too.I think they had fun there too.Oh i nearly forgot i had a packet of milk too and that is really delicious.

Going to TANJONG KATONG PRIMARY SCHOOL for an international friendship day is very fun, we get to play diffrent things and buy different things. for the boys, we played soccer as a friendly match. we lost 2-0 but it is not the point, the point is we put in most of our effort and we played together as a team.The TANJONG PRIMARY SCHOOL PUPILS were very friendly too. There were many performances too.
I love going there !!

I had alot of fun in Tanjong Katong Primary School.Although we lost the soccer match,we still had alot of fun.we also bought some balloons which had water in them.
We also got to drink a packet milk which has a special straw accompanied.But of course,after we drank the milk,we felt like we had eaten alot of things.Some of us interacted with the students from Tanjong Katong Primry School.

Jared Ng said...

They started be giving us a very warm welcome. We had very interesting and we even had a soccer match. Even though we lost the match, we still made friends with them and learn about teamwork while playing the soccer match. There was also a lot of things being sold there and all the activities there were very interesting too.They also gave us some souvenirs to bring back.

Jia Yi said...

There's many kinds of games stall there .I like the Japanese game stall.A ballon filled with some water and some air . There's many different coloured ballons.A rubber band is also attached to it.The end of the rubber band was tied in a shape of a circle or a ovale.They gave us a hooker and and we tried to hook the ballon up .

Later on, we went to the hall to watch some performances .My favourite performance is the rap show. The peformer is incredible .He danced like a robot .I loved the hand wave the most .He even taughted us how to do it .But we still can't do it.When he walk like a robot ,he really looked like a robot with wheels.
I hope to go to other schools and learn more about their school.

Tang Wen Yue said...

it was very fun at Tanjong Katong Primary School.It was fun watching the others play soccer and the performance was also very nice.The milk was also very delicious.After we drank the milk,we went to find some games to play.

Shaojinrui said...

It was very fun and I join the football game.Although we have lost the game,we still make friends with the soccer players in Tanjong Katong Pri School,I learn that group work in some sports games are very important.
The performances are really quite nice also they have chinese dance,modern dance,folk dance and my favourite dance,the ballroom dance.
I wish next time, there are still some chances to go make friends with people from other schools!

Lim Teck Hwee said...

It was fun there and we played soccer with them.It was a friendly match.We have a great time even though we lost by 2-0.Then,we bought water balloons.We also played some games and got some prizes.After that,we went to the hall to watch performances.There were the Hip-hop dance,gymnastic and the fencing.Finally,we were going back to school.Everyone wished to stay longer but we must still go back to school.We had no choice but to go back.

Tan Li Yi said...

Well,after I gone to the Tanjong Tajong Primary School.I learned that the first time my friends saw the school's pupils,they looked as they were good friends,they played the friendly soccer match very good.They gave delicious,banana milk.Actually,there is a straw that have banana beads to taste.At the hall,we also saw performences on the stage.tThey were amazing and magnificent!I bought a water balloon that is like a yo-yo.I really enjoyed and I hope to come again!

Phoebe Lee from 5 Ha said...

The visit to tanjong katong was truly inspiring. I had fun at their fun fair, and took home some beautifully-patterned water balloons. Personally, I think their fun fair was big but our fun fair was much neater.

Well, I also watched tkps boys play a match with tanjong katong primary school's soccer players. We lost, but it's okay. I still liked to cheer for them!

After all that soccer excitement, I went to the hall. People were flipping and jumping and dancing and stuff. I liked the performer who teached us how to to do the hand wave.

I hope I will have other exciting experiences like this one!

Bennett Lim said...

I thinked that the event from tanjong katong primary school was very meaningful because there were a lot of game that were from other races.The soccer match at there very interesting even though i'm not in the game but i see that the players were playing very well.I do not play a lot of game there,after that i'm quite regret abot it because i do not get a chance to play the game from the other races.The game i only play was basketball,i should had used thatime i played at to play the other games from the other races.

Iffah Amirah said...

Our visit to TKP was fun!!The school was quite big too..There were many game stalls and food stalls too.The game that we enjoyed most was playing in the Japenese game stall.We had to hook a water balloon.The water balloon had different kind of colours and decorations..

We watch the boys played soccer friendly match.It was a quite tough match though..we losed the match by 2:0

After that we watched a perfomance in the schoool hall.The school hall was big than I thought.the peformance was cool:D.We watch their chinese dancers dance and there was a cool performance called'hip hop dance' he thought us how to do hand wave and he dance like a robot...

We when back to school with a happy face:)I wish we could go to other school again....

I was speechless with joy When we reach Tanjong Katong primary school,i was amazed too. The school was big!!! I think bigger than our school.... =P The food sold there was very cheap and it was worth to buy. There was a coupon for free milk and the milk was extremly delicious!!! Then My class most of them bought alot of water ballon yo-yo for themselves but i just buy one because we should not be greedy and should give others a chance to have one too. Then the boys in my class plyed soccer with Tanjong Katong primary. TKPS VS TKPS! Too bad the boys lost.... Then miss Nura brought my class to the hall to watch some performance. The really good part is the hall HAVE AIR-CON!!! It was quite cooling... The performace we watched waas chinese dance, malay dance, indian dance and the gymastics performed by the teachers at that school. The teachers were really good!!! And we watched the performance at the second level of the hall. I learnt quite many things at there and i hoped to go to such activities again!!!!!!!!!!! =D

We were welcome by Mrs Chong and some other teachers and pupils when we got there.The people there were kind , helpful and friendly.
There were more international pupils for their school and less local pupils.
I played games and watched performances.There were Chinese,Malay dance,hip hop dance and there was even Kimberly from one minute of fame dancing with Ashton!How exciting and interesting!If only everyone in our school could go there,it would be so much fun!
I hope to have more events and activities for me to participate and enjoy myselves!
I hope to have another chance to go to outside school to experience and to learn something new!

i felt excited before going to tajong katong primary school because we were having a soccer match with them and we are sure that we are going to lose because their players were from the soccer team and we were only normal players and none of us are our school soccer players.when we arrived at there,we saw mrs cheong our last two years school vice principal.Also,there are games, and perfomance happening in the school.After one hour of looking around,we were ready to take on tajong katong primary school in soccer.unluckly,we lost to them by 2-0.after the tiring match,we went to get some milk.after that,we went to the hall to watch performance.when we were there,the performance were already having half way.we only manage to watch,fencing,malay dance,modern dance,chinese dance and hip-hop dance.when at 11.45,we were having lucky draw and xiu yi won a prize.after all hte things,we went home carrying a water balloon.

Shu Yan said...

It was quite fun. There were many game stalls and food stalls. Although I found them quite interesting, I didn't quite participate in the games nor eat the food.The only game I participated in was the Japanese Water Balls which was quite the same as YoYos. After playing that game, we went to watch a show where the pupils of different cultures put up for us. After watching th performance, we loitered around the school a little more, watched our friend, Xiu Yi, winning something from the lucky draw, then went home. =3

it was fun and i get to play soccer with the tanjong katong pupils.I also watched some perfomances and we had to go home after that... i had an enjoyable time there and i hope to go there again!

Zhe Syuen said...

There's alot of games and activities like Japanese water ball that looks like yoyo,I like to play the Japanese ball best because it is very fun. There are dances like chinese dance, malay dance ... and pop and jazz dance. Our school compete with the Tanjong Katong Pri games like Soccer and basketball. They play under the rain! There are also lots of food and drinks from different countries. Then we go for the lucky draw then go back to school. As we are waiting, there are alot of baloons are BURST! Boom! One burst afer one, but not mine! I have alot of fun there and I wish to go again.

I THINK THAT IT'S FUN AND THE ACTIVITIES THEY ARE HAVING IS VERY INTERESTING .AS THE GAME ARE FROM DIFFERENT DIFFERENT COUNTRY, THAT MOST OF THEM WE CAN'T FIND IT IN Singapore. THE POSTER THERE IN THE TAJONG KATONG PRIMARY SCHOOL BAZZAR ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE AS WE PLAY GAMES ,WE CAN ALSO LEARN ABOUT THE GAMES AND THE DIFFERENT COUNTRY CULTURE . LASTLY THE PERFORMANCE WAS A GREAT AND THE MOST PERFECT ONE .THE DANCES CAN BRING OUT THE HARMONY BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT RELIGION. BUT I THINK THAT MAYBE WE CAN ASK MORE PUPILS TO JOIN US IN THE FUN EVENT NEXT TIME IF WE HAVE THE CHANCE.

I think that the visit was fun and interesting because there were alot of activities going on which originated from different countries. For example,they were selling water balloon yoyo that were from Japan. There was an activity that was netball and i tried it,the net was about 2m high!My first attempt was successful and I won a prize!I was so happy!I also noticed that there are alot of international students. I've even chatted with one of them! I like one of the school's CCA which was Judo. Almost everything i saw from the school was related to other countries(international). Like the pupils,food,games,activities,CCAs and performances.

I feel very amazed when I first reached Tanjong Katong Primary School. I realized that there were even Caucasians in their scool population of students. We had to do a worksheet and we even had a packet of free milk and it was delicious! At about 10am, Tanjong Katong Pri Sch had a friendly football match with us.And at about 10.30am, we went to the hall at Tanjong Katong Pri Sch to watched the performances and realized that they had air-con in their hall! So Good! Any way I aslo found out that they had the top view(where you can see from the top) in the hall I wished we had that in our hall too!

I was amazed when I went to Tanjong Katong Primary for the first time.I realised that there were international races in their school population of pupils.First,we went to the canteen and were given a workshet that had to be done.We also had been given permission to walk around the school in groups.There were many different kinds of food and we had a free packet of milk.There were also different games from different countries.One of them I knew,was the water balloons which is from Japan.At 10am, we had a friendly match with Tanjong Katong Primary.Our classmates did their best, but we lost.But the important thing is to have fun.After the soccer game ended, we proceed to the hall to watch the performances.The performers did their best and it turn out to be great.Overall,I had a great time!
