Blossom Berrykidz celebrated Singapore 45th Birthday with a whole host of activities lined up for the day.  To start off this memorable and meaningful day, Miss May had a storytelling session, giving the children a glimpse into the history of Singapore as she described and showed photos of olden day Singapore. After the storytelling session, we went on to sing the National Anthem and recited the Pledge in one harmonious voice.

"Let's wave our flags high up in the air!"

Our spirits were further lifted and everyone got into a celebratory mood as we sang and waved our flags wildly to our all-time favourite Singapore songs like ‘Count On Me, Singapore’, ‘Chan Mali Chan’ and ‘We are Singapore’.

Next up in the programme, the children had the opportunity to showcase their creativity by showing off their beautifully decorated flags in line with this year’s National Day theme – “Live Our Dreams, Fly Our Flag”. The children proudly paraded their artworks of various flags and banners that they designed and decorated in class as the teachers made their choice for the ‘Best Flag Design’ competition.  Not only did the littles ones get to exercise their creative juices, they were also able to learn about the value of friendly competition!

Last but definitely not the least, the birthday party would not be complete without games!  Thanks to Teacher Kathleen, the children had a wild time playing different games that were centered on the National Day theme. On the whole, it was a memorable experience for the children as they celebrated the country’s 45 years of independence!
