Learning Journey to Bukit Chandu
Held during the March holidays, the learning journey aims to bring dancers to appreciate the sacrifices of our past generations to the nation. It also gives the opportunity for the dancers to understand the values held by the soldiers in overcoming challenges and obstacles. Also, going to Bukit Chandu provides opportunity for the students get the “Kampung feeling” which allows them to get into their respective characters when they dance.

Also, it depicts the story of the struggles of a group of youths, who in a bid to fulfill a project, reflect on the contributions and progress of the Malay community since Singapore‘s independence and reflect the unified Singapore Spirit of care, concern and support, especially in times of difficulties.
