On June 15th, the Year 10 iGCSE Mandarin class explored the Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall at Balestier Road as part of their learning about the Chinese culture. They learnt how Chinese immigrants in Singapore played an essential role in the 1911 Revolution, overthrowing the Qing dynasty and the birth of modern day China. As the original residence of Sun Yat Sen’s visits, the museum held many original artifacts, historical documents and books. Then an eye-catching exhibition, the ‘Stitches of Love’, showed that many types Chinese clothing could symbolize success, love, health and good fortune. The exhibition had many interactive activities that the students took part in.

Below are the reflections from the students:

  • "The new exhibition with the interactive systems was especially interesting, as well as the videos and articles on display." Hannah
  • "The videos and photos showcased differences throughout the Qing dynasty and how it impacted China, which was very educating." Louise
  • "The museum clearly visualizes the characteristic events that lead to the downfall of the last emperors of China." Christopher
  • "Very educational and fun, especially the visual aspects of the gallery." Ethan
