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。

今年是新加坡开埠200周年,《星期二特写》制作团队摄制了三集历史纪录片《一座山一条河》,透过福康宁山和新加坡河的演变,述说岛国古今。节目已在8月27日(星期二)晚上8点30分,通过8频道正式启播。为感谢各界对制作团队的支持与协助,新传媒诚邀我校师生出席《一座山一条河》首映会,分享创作成果。

以下是同学们的反思:

“首映会让我最有感触的是考古学家在福康宁山考古的的场景。《一座山一条河》开阔了我对新加坡历史的认识,让我们更准确、深入地了解欠缺书写记载的历史。十四世纪的新加坡生活条件不佳,我们不得不佩服先辈们开拓这片土地的决心。其次,首映会后的迷你小吃摊位,都是富有早期南洋风味的美食,包括了椰浆饭,咖喱包等。我们认为,主办方特别用心,通过小吃摊位让出席活动的宾客们体验新加坡的饮食文化,也让老一辈的人士回忆当初的美好时光。

首映会让我们更积极地去了解新加坡的历史。同时,也让我们更珍惜新加坡所拥有的良好环境,因为这都是新加坡的前人所留下的智慧结晶。这次首映会的目的不单是让老一辈的人士有机会再次回味早期的新加坡,也教导年轻一辈珍惜先辈们所打拼的成果。”

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.”
