Hi all, it’s been a while. Here are the articles in the LRD newspaper we will be focusing on for this week.
Every year, Singaporeans commemorate Total Defence Day on 15th February – the day Singapore fell to the Japanese during World War II.
The library has set up a display with books that tell how Singapore was like during the war, and how we can contribute to our country’s defence through its five pillars.
“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
The library will be running activities during recess and lunch that will allow you to continue to earn your mystery coupons.
