Fuchun teams up with the Singapore American School once again!
Since 2011, our school and the Singapore American School (SAS) have been working together. This year, the partnership which started in April. All the Primary 1 pupils were involved with their peers from SAS for four sessions to create simple alphabet books based on the theme of friendship. This theme was specially chosen to coincide with International Friendship Day which was commemorated in April. Two sessions were held at Fuchun Primary and SAS each. This partnership enabled pupils to interact with friends of different cultures and backgrounds while learning more about words. The completed alphabet books would be given to Fei Yue Family Services Centre to help them improve young residents’ reading skills.

Fuchun Caring Week
The annual Fuchun Caring Week held in April is an initiative that seeks to reinforce the value of care in our pupils. This initiative provides an opportunity for pupils to show care for others in the community, especially the needy. It reiterates their understanding of being socially responsible as a member of the community. With this rationale in mind, the school appealed for donations of food and other essential items from our pupils and parents to be donated to 4 needy homes; namely the Metta Home, Sree Narayana Mission, Mun Fatt Tong Nursing Home and Pertapis Home.
We were heartened to receive many items as part of the donation drive from the pupils and parents. The Primary 5 pupils collected, sorted and distributed these items to the homes as part of their Values-In-Action Programme. This is definitely a testament of the success of the initiative’s intent and the active participation of the pupils and parents here in Fuchun.
