National day celebrations continued this year via Zoom for the children and Ustazahs of Madrasah As-Soabereen (Bishan). A variety of activities were lined up for the Primary to Tertiary students for them to recollect the past and appreciate the countless blessings as “We are One Singapore”.
The Lower Primary children celebrated our Nation’s birthday by doing various activities. Some of these include:
And finally ended the celebration by wishing Singapore a happy 56th birthday!
The Upper Primary to Tertiary children’s celebration was centered on sharing about how our beloved Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W) was thankful for the place he was brought up in. Thereafter, the children penned down their notes of gratitude on Padlet.
In order for the current generation to remain thankful for the many blessings we experience by being in Singapore, it is essential for National Day celebrations to include essence of history. Thus, the children revisited Singapore’s history and learnt about our wonderful Singapore leaders, who have been introducing many beneficial policies and initiatives over the past few decades.
Games such as Bingo, Pictionary, and Scramble were also played by the Upper Primary girls, where they felt, “Together Our Singapore Spirit.”
Reminders of past are pivotal as we move towards success. These reminders will allow us to remain thankful for being in Singapore.
وَقُل رَّبِّ أَنزِلْنِى مُنزَلًا مُّبَارَكًا وَأَنتَ خَيْرُ ٱلْمُنزِلِينَ
And say, ‘My Lord, let me land at a blessed landing place, and You are the best to accommodate [us].‘
Surah Al-Mu’minun, 23: Ayat 29)
