26 Popclub-Prepare for PSLE With the Sing Chu Education Series

Prepare for PSLE With the Sing Chu Education Series

Chou Sing Chu Foundation has published a comprehensive series of guidebooks to help schoolchildren prepare for the PSLE.

With the adoption of the new examination format in the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), the subject of Chinese has taken on an even more important role in getting our children into their preferred secondary schools. Knowing what to learn will improve their learning efficiency while helping them prepare for their PSLE Chinese examination.

In line with its commitment to promoting reading in Chinese and the use of Chinese, Chou Sing Chu Foundation has donated over 130,000 Chinese children’s storybooks to Tampines Regional Library and 70 primary schools in Singapore, organised roving storytelling sessions in various public libraries and schools around the country, and published a series of children’s storybooks. In addition, we have published a comprehensive series of guidebooks to help young students learn and prepare for the PSLE.

The series of guidebooks covers the key elements in giving children a strong foundation in learning Chinese, including learning new words and improving their vocabulary, becoming familiar with the format of the PSLE Chinese Paper 2, and mastering the reading comprehension section that many students find difficult. The contents of our guidebooks are planned according to the Chinese syllabus set by the Singapore Ministry of Education.

Chinese Storytelling

Good News! Our Sing Chu Chinese Storytelling at libraries is back!

Packed with fun-filled interactive Chinese Storytelling activities not to be missed!

Since September 2015, Chou Sing Chu Foundation has been organising a series of Chinese storytelling sessions in public libraries around the island. Our aim is to enable children to learn Chinese through listening to interesting and engaging stories, and at the same time, ignite their imagination and instil good values.

To date, the response has been overwhelming. Most of our storytellers are volunteers, and amongst them are student volunteers who have undergone training in storytelling for children. Many guest storytellers, like the renowned local TV personality Mr Kenneth Kong, have also taken time off their busy schedule to participate in our storytelling sessions.

The stories used in these sessions are taken from the Chou Sing Chu Foundation’s educational repository and are suitable for children between the ages of four and ten. We warmly welcome parents to join us with their children.

Engaging stories and an exciting childhood – this is the best time of life to be filled with laughter and vivid imaginations.
