Learning Journey to the Malay Heritage Centre
In commemoration of SG Bicentennial, the Malay Language Department organised a learning journey to the Malay Heritage Centre on 27 Mar 2019 (Wed). This learning journey was also planned as one of the highlight programmes during our Mother Tongue Fortnight. 

Through the learning journey, our students were able to better appreciate the contributions by the Malay community in the development of Singapore as a nation. By getting to know their identity and origins, we hope that students will develop a keener sense of belonging and love for Singapore.
