Commemorating RHD, the SST way

Dear students,

As shared during morning assembly today, the theme for this year's RHD is Singapore: Our Multicultural Mosaic.

The NE team has planned the upcoming activities to commemorate Racial Harmony Day (RHD) next week, the SST way, choosing to focus on Applied Learning. The highlight of this year's RHD planning includes experiential learning journeys to 3 locations, for students to immerse themselves and learn about how the various religious institutions (Masjid Darussalam and Church of the Holy Cross) and heritage site (Kampung Glam) help to foster multiculturalism and religious harmony in Singapore.

On 21st July (Friday) All students are encouraged to dress in ethnic costumes to commemorate RHD - representative of the major ethnicities of the Singaporean identity - Chinese, Malay, Indian, Eurasians. Please see infographic for reference. Please be mindful of the Dos and Dont’s by referring to the SST Attire and Grooming guidelines. Be respectful with your choice of ethnic attire. (no inter-ethnic mixing, no cross-gender dressing, no Cosplay allowed)

Finally, all class Chairpersons will need to submit a Google Form to participate in the ethnic costume challenge by 1700 on 21st July. Late entries will be disqualified.. Prizes will be awarded for the class (by level):

  • Most number of students dressed in ethnic costumes

  • Most ethnically diverse costumes worn


Have a fruitful RHD week!
