September School Holidays 2010

What To Do During September School Holiday?

September School Holiday lasts only one week from 6th September to 10th September 2010.  Many students are using this period to prepare for their final year exams and those Primary 6 students are busy preparing for their final dash for the PSLE (Wish you best of luck!)

Although this is a very short school vacation and busy period, students still need breaks and time to relax.   I have listed here some recommendations that will hopefully “charge” them and cheer them up.  Parents will find good family bonding time while spending time doing these activities together.


Heroes Of Asia

For:  ALL

3982699914 62f2409036Heroes of Asia is the ACM’s second exhibition curated especially for children! Featuring colourful displays and engaging artefacts from the ACM’s collection, the exhibition explores the legends behind some of the well-known and well-loved characters of Asian myths – many of whom are still well-known and often found in contemporary culture.

Some of the characters you will learn about in the exhibition include Hanuman the Monkey God of India, Rustam the dashing champion of Iran who defeated dragons and demons, and Mulan the warrior-maiden of Chinese legends. The exhibition also features a fun zone for hands on learning for kids.
