Bukit View Primary School
Ms Pamela Kiew believes in making English interesting and relevant to her students. She brings the English language to life in her school through a variety of methods – one of which is a “Performing Arts Studio”, a room filled with props to spur teachers and students into scripting plays and putting on drama performances. Another of her programmes, “Mad about English”, gets students to complete tasks related to the four English Language skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening. Recognising that students look to adults as role models, she initiated a programme for all non-teaching staff, including canteen vendors and security guards, to be trained to speak in Standard English.
