New! Term 3 Letter & Calendar of Activities
As we welcome all our NSPS students back for the start of Semester 2, we would like to affirm the dedication and commitment of all our teachers who cut short their June holidays and returned to school in full force to provide coaching in small groups to prepare our Primary 6 students for the 2014 Primary School Leaving Examinations. The five-day Primary 6 Intensive Study Programme was conducted from 23 June 2014 to 27 June 2014.
We would also like to thank the parents of the Primary 6 students for your support in the Primary 6 Intensive Study Programme by ensuring that they turn up punctually for their lessons and put in their best for their PSLE revisions. We certainly believe that the students have built their resilience and perseverance and will be able to perform their best at their PSLE if they sustain the same rigor and effort leading to the PSLE.
Please take note of announcements in our school letter and events scheduled for Term 3 below.

N4 Cluster Chinese Drama Script Writing Competition 2014
During the June holiday, two groups of our P4 and P5 students participated in the N4 Cluster Chinese Drama Script Writing camp cum Chinese Drama Script Writing Competition 2014 held on 5th and 6th June 2014. This competition was organised by Mee Toh School. Pupils were provided with the opportunity to explore their creativity, and learn to write a 10 minutes script based on a single prop provided for them. Pupils will then perform the script that they have written on stage through the Chinese Drama Script Writing Competition.
A total of 13 teams from the cluster schools participated in this competition and I am pleased to announce that our P5 students had done our school proud. They had clinched the BEST TEAMWORK AWARD （ 最佳团队奖 ）. During these two days, all of them displayed teamwork, resilience, care and concern for their teammates. They displayed great teamwork and put up a good show for the audience and judges.
Road Safety Matters
Let us be good role models and obey traffic rules and let us take extra effort to be vigilant on the roads, especially in areas where children will congregate. Everyone has a stake in road safety. Let us work together to make our roads safer for ourselves, our loved ones and all road users. Please take note of the following information on Road Safety:

The iMTL Portal is a web-based portal developed by MOE that enhances students’ learning of communication skills in Mother Tongue Languages through meaningful feedback and self-directed learning. The portal provides students with more opportunities (within and beyond curriculum time) to learn and use the language in authentic contexts, thereby increasing exposure time to the Mother Tongue Languages.
