Taipei Jian Kang Elementary School Immersion Programme
On 6 February 2017, Temasek Primary School welcomed a group of 39 P6 Taiwanese pupils from Taipei Jian Kang Elementary School. All of them, together with their principal, Mdm Chen and HOD Mdm Luo, were warmly received by our school leaders. The Taiwanese pupils were allocated to various P5 classes for lessons and our P5 pupils buddied them. Our pupils took care of the visitors’ well-being and showed them around the school, allowing them to experience being Temasekians for a short time. They had a good time interacting with their assigned buddies. The Taiwanese pupils also attended Robotics lessons and Art lessons customised for them. During the farewell session, both Temasek Primary School and Taipei Jian Kang Elementary School pupils exchanged gifts and took pictures to seal the friendships established and forged over the short period of time. It was a memorable experience for all who were involved.

Taiwan Immersion Programme
From 21-22 July 2016, a group of pupils and teachers from National University of Tainan Affliated Primary School came to Temasek Primary for a 2-day immersion programme. They were accompanied by their principal and 6 other teachers.
The pupils, aged between 10 and 12 years old, were attached to the P4 and P5 levels. Each pupil was assigned a Temasek buddy and all of them had a fun-filled 2-day Temasek experience in class. Not only did the Taiwanese students attend our Racial Harmony commemorative event in the hall, they also performed a Taiwanese tribal dance as an introductory item upon their arrival.
On the second day, a customised Robotics lessons was conducted by our ICT HOD, Mdm Marlini, for the Taiwanese pupils and teachers. They enjoyed the lessons tremendously and were envious that we had the expertise and infrastructure to allow every child in Temasek to experience Robotics lessons.
