CJC Awarded Inaugural NHB's School Heritage Champion Award 2017
The School Heritage Champion Award is an inaugural award which recognises and applauds schools that are strong supporters and advocates of National Heritage Board's heritage education initiatives. These initiatives are targeted at the various milestones in a student’s education journey from pre-school to tertiary level. In recognition of our strong support of the Heritage Trail Adoption Scheme, CJC has been selected as one of the recipients of the School Heritage Champion Award 2017 by National Heritage Board (NHB) for its conceptualisation and implementation of CJC’s Mother Tongue Language (MTL) Fortnight. A central aspect of the fortnight was the Balestier Trail, which was spearheaded by CJC’s Mother Tongue Department in 2015 to encourage an authentic learning experience for MTL students. As part of the trail, students had to do embark on a research process and to produce a video introducing a historical landmark in Balestier.
