Pupils be competent in their Mother Tongue Language and understand their culture.
Juying Primary Tamil Department aims to nurture pupils’ love for Tamil language through a variety of learning experiences. We strongly believe in creating a joyful learning environment that promotes the learning of Tamil Language rooted with cultural and moral values.
The department has put in place various programmes and activities to nurture the passion for Tamil language and to develop confident individuals who are able to communicate effectively in the language. Some of these activities and programmes are highlighted below.
Extensive Reading Programme
Pupils are able to access storybooks of different genres to inculcate a love for reading Tamil storybooks and to develop their language acquisition skills. Pupils are involved in activities such as book sharing, author’s chair and hot seat to share their learning and experiences with their peers.
Love Tamil! Speak Tamil!
Middle and Upper primary pupils participate in these fortnightly sessions to develop their analytical and critical thinking using Tamil Language. Pupils have the option to create awareness or share ideas and responses to varied global and social issues. This platform provides opportunities for pupils to become eloquent speakers of Tamil language.
Mother Tongue Fortnight
To cultivate the love of the language and increase pupils’ awareness of Indian tradition, music and food, our department planned for a wide variety of activities. Pupils had opportunities to create stories using traditional Indian puppets and creating music using bow and strings (villupattu). Pupils also had an enjoyable hands-on session making simple yet tasty traditional Indian food items (panchamirtham and ghee balls).
