As Grade 4 students are fast approaching their Learning Celebration (as well as this Unit of Inquiry Summative Assessment), they have spent the last two weeks’ Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons preparing their best to produce a drama which will convey messages to a specific audience – their parents, teachers and other members of the school community.
Every student participates actively through different roles. The “Character Team” practises to act on the stage. The “Properties Team” designs and makes all properties needed for the drama. The “Costume Team” designs and prepares all costumes for the characters. The “Music and Set Design Team” practises playing music and designs the scenery to help create “the atmosphere” and “the world” of the play. Last but not least, the “Documentation Team” records highlights of the preparation process and will do as such during the actual performance. The following are some of their snapshots:
On November 4th-5th, 2016, Sekolah Victory Plus held a Religious Camp for all grade 4-6 (Moslem, Christian, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist). The aims of this event are to learn more about our own religion and to understand the beauty of differences by being open-minded and caring with other students with different religions, race and backgrounds. We learn that unity is not uniformity. It is not making everything exactly the same, but it is to unite everyone with different religions, gender, race and background to work together to achieve Victory. Therefore, this year’s theme is Unity for Victory. Let’s support our students by being a good example in making Unity for Victory into action.
