Chinese Cultural Society
Since 2012, our society has expanded our activities beyond paint and brushes. Our members learn Chinese calligraphy, Chinese painting, paper cutting and Chinese knots and craft. We also paint wall murals to beautify the school, put up art and craft exhibitions, teach old folks Chinese knots during our VIA, learn to play Chinese chess (weiqi), learn about Chinese culture and early migrants history in Singapore on Learning Journeys, and do physical exercise when we learn taiji fan exercises or practice dance steps for performances!
Following our first performance at the Chinese New Year (CNY) Concert 2017—Taiji Fan, we put up a dance item using Chinese masks at the CNY Concert in 2018. This time, we performed at both SAC Primary School and SAC Secondary School.
Our team’s latest achievement is the sale of our handmade crafts at the Night Festival 2018. We sold many beautifully painted fabric fans and raised a total of $225 for charity!
The success of our CNY performance and sale of craft raised our morale and gave recognition to our contribution to the school. It also taught us a valuable lesson – nothing ventured, nothing gained.

All members from Sec 2, 3 and 4 take part in these Annual Calligraphy competitions organised by National University of Singapore and Nanyang Technological University to increase their interest and confidence by learning from fellow participants.
Students are exposed to Chinese Culture and Art of very high standard when they visit exhibitions that show case calligraphy Artwork and Chinese painting by local artists and artists from Chinese. In 2016, 13 members did extremely well in a Chinese Painting competition. Their paintings won prizes in a competition and were selected for an exhibition — Singapore Chinese Cultural & Calligraphy Exhibition. These paintings were framed and hung up on the wall on the third level of the school.
At SAC Night Festival 2018, our CCA set up a booth to sell our handmade craft and we raised $225 for charity.
