TKGS commemorates Total Defence day with realism, with a teacher-initiated item
24 Feb 2014, 02:06pm
TKGS commemorated Total Defence Day (TDD) with a series of engaging and thought-provoking events. These events were designed based on the Understanding Goals that “A nation’s identity is tested in times of crisis” and “Preparedness to face crises comes during peacetime”
The week started with a surprise Emergency Exercise to test the preparedness of the school. An explosion was simulated in the canteen during common recess. Drama Club members were recruited to act as injured victims or care buddies. Media Club members filmed the response of the students and creatively produced a short video depicting the incident as part of a news broadcast. The video was used the next day as part of the school’s TDD Legacy Lesson to debrief students on the school’s level of preparedness. Lower Secondary students then watched a news report to contrast their response to how the Japanese responded to the tsunami in March 2011, while the Upper Secondary students discussed the “Little India Riot”.
On 14 February, a group of teachers surprised the students by putting up a performance to depict how the fall of Singapore to the Japanese on 15 February 1942 led to Singapore investing heavily in Total Defence. A highlight of the performance had teachers geared in full SAF uniform entering the Hall stealthy to demonstrate the impressiveness of our military defence. The Sec 4 Citizenship Education Reps also led the Sec 4 classes in writing notes of affirmation to their Sec 1 Juniors in their bid to build bonds within the school as part of Social Defence.
Mrs Mary Seah closed TDD week by speaking about the impact of the move to name a new frigate after Osman Haji Mohamed Ali and Harun Said, who were convicted for the March 1965 bombing of MacDonald House on Orchard Road.
In all, a refreshing and innovative experience was designed for students to have a deeper understanding why Singapore commemorates Total Defence Day. We hope that TKGians will play their part in building Singapore to be a home that is secure and stable for all.
