We have reached the mid-point of the June school holidays. Wow that was fast, wasn’t it? For some, it is just the start of their vacation, having spent the first two weeks in school or attending enrichment classes. For others, overseas holidays or fun-filled staycations are done and dusted and it’s time to get back to school work and revision especially the Primary 6 students.

Whichever the case,  we are sure students will still have some time to relax and enjoy themselves because you know what they say about all work and no play right? Yup, it makes for very dull children :).

We have sourced for some activities happening right here in sunny Singapore that will help students tread the middle ground of having fun while learning.
