Are you ready, kids?
Look, Patrick. Today is 14 th November. Temasek Primary School is having their Deeparaya Celebrations today. Oh, I almost forgot about it. Let’s go there now.
Temasek Primary School Along Bedok South Ave 3… Excuse me sir. Do you know how to get to Temasek Primary School? It’s just straight ahead.
Stop! Before you go any further, you have to answer two questions. Qn 1. When did Singaporean’s celebrate Deepavali this year? Qn 2. When did Singaporean’s celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri this year? Oh, no! We need help. Don’t worry. Students from Temasek Primary will help us. Answer: 21 st October Answer: 24 th October
Now, we have to be on our guard. Let’s head to the computer lab once we reach Temasek Primary. We can then download information on Deepavali and Hari Raya Aidilfitri from the internet. Phew! Those were difficult questions. I am sure Miss Nur Ain have prepared more difficult questions for us to answer.
