    Total Defence Day was commemorated on 15 February, marking the anniversary of the fall of Singapore to the Japanese in 1942. The Year 1-4 ceremony prominently featured our Uniformed Groups.

    Our Principal and Deputy Principal laid flowers in front of our War Memorial, which is dedicated to members of the RI community who fell while defending Singapore during the second World War. It was a solemn reminder that all Singaporeans have a hand to play in defending our country.

    The Year 5-6 Total Defence Day commemoration focused on SGSecure, a national initiative. The students attended a talk as well as a mobile exhibition. They also participated in class bonding activities.
