This year Singapore celebrates its 42nd year of independence, marking it with a parade at Marina Bay. This parade will be held on the world's largest floating platform. Singapore's Defence Science and Technology Agency took 13 months of planning and precise building to create this structure which can float, take heavy loads and be reconfigured, and that is where all the action will be come 9 August. The theme for this year's National Day is: Singapore: City of Possibilities
This week in Little D's school all their activities centred around National day and Singapore. She is able to tell me that there is a crescent moon and 5 stars on our red and white flag. For cookery, they made flag sandwiches, which they devoured. Little D and her classmates also made little flags and banners for art and craft which are now hanging proudly as decoration in their classroom.
National Day celebrations in her school culminated with a concert and a class party.
This was our contribution for the party:
Red and white agar-agar
The children were encouraged to come dressed in red and white or in ethnic costumes for the party.
