Racial Harmony Day
Racial Harmony Day is an annual event held on 21 July to commemorate the communal riots of 1964. All schools in Singapore take the opportunity to teach students the importance of maintaining racial and religious harmony in Singapore’s multicultural and multi-ethnic society.
As part of our National Education efforts, Spring College International commemorates Racial Harmony Day (RHD) every year on 21st July through games, activities and discussions to enable students to gain a deeper appreciation of racial harmony, multiculturalism and social cohesion.
The school had given a talk about the Racial Harmony Day, which enabled our students to understand how communities in Singapore are unique but also intertwined with others to depict the cultural diversity that characterises life in Singapore.
SCI students come from different backgrounds and cultures, e.g. India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia, China, etc. They had dressed up in their traditional costumes and played a variety of traditional games in their class. Our teachers also discussed about the history of RHD, different races and their traditional foods, cultures and activities.
