Premiere of “Tuesday Report: A Hill and A River”

8月24日(星期六),下午 2点至5点,我校中二双文化人才培育计划的师生参与了由新传媒中文时事节目《星期二特写》制作团队在亚洲文明博物馆所主办的《 一座山一条河》首映会。他们分别是倪厚晶(2C)、陈奕凡(2C)、陆泽婷(2E)、唐佳琪(2I)和林隽凯老师。





To mark Singapore’s bicentennial year, Mediacorp’s Chinese Current Affairs team has produced a special series, “Tuesday Report: A Hill & A River”. This 3-episode documentary traces the history of Singapore through the developments and evolution of Fort Canning and the Singapore River. The series debuted on Tuesday August 24, at 8.30pm on Channel 8.

Our students and teachers from the Year 2 Bicultural Studies Talent Development Programme have had the honour of attending the premiere of the programme on 24 Aug 2019 at the Asian Civilisations Museum. They are Anna Ni Houjing (2C), Chen Yifan (2C), Krystal Lek Ze Ting (2E) and Tang Jiaqi (2I).

Here’s the reflection from our students:

“A Hill and A River” has broadened my understanding of archaeology and Singapore’s history. It has allowed us to have a more accurate and deeper understanding of the era that lacked written records. Understanding how difficult life was in the 14th century has helped us to appreciate and admire the determination of our forefathers who have built Singapore to become a successful nation. In addition, the mini-food stall after the premiere showcase was also a unique experience for us. The food catered was mainly early Nanyang flavors, including Nasi Lemak and curry puffs. The production has been thoughtful in setting up these stalls to enable guests to experience the food culture of early Singapore and at the same time evoke a sense of nostalgia in citizens from the older generations.

The premiere stirred us to be more active in understanding the history of Singapore. At the same time, we learnt to cherish our lives in Singapore, as the prosperity that we enjoy now is all a result of the collective efforts of our previous generations. The premiere of “A Hill and A River” has not only given the older generation a chance to relive their memories, but also educated our youths the value of cherishing the good work of our predecessors.”
