Mission

Highlights of Some Key Programmes:


Mother Tongue Fortnight (P1-P6)
In support of MOE's efforts to promote student learning and appreciation of Mother Tongue Languages and cultures, the YPS Tamil language unit held a wide range of activities for the Primary 1 to Primary 6 levels as part of Mother Tongue Fortnight. These activities are designed to ignite student’s interests in Mother Tongue Languages through exposure to performing arts, handicrafts and games.
