Chinese Cultural Society (CCS)
Overall Teacher-in-charge: Mr Suah Yee Leng
CLDDS was holding Media drama group in 2008. Two year old Guzheng Ensemble and a newly formed Literary and Writing Club were merged into CLDDS in 2009; hence it was renamed as Chinese Cultural Society (CCS), to better represent the multi activity of the society which includes writing, drama and music. CCS aims to provide members a platform to better develop their skills and appreciation in Chinese language and culture.

Literary and Writing Club aims to develop students’ skills to master Chinese language and literature. It identifies students with writing talents, provides them platform to pen down and to exchange their creative literary thoughts.
Members learn to appreciate and to express in different genres of writing. Guided-reading sessions were conducted to strengthen students’ understanding of popular texts and appreciation in different genres of Chinese literature.
Outdoor activities such as field trip to Chinatown was organised in order to inspire members to gain new insight from different perspectives to enhance their writing experience.
The students’ works will be compiled and published in the school’s Chinese literary publication “Hua Yuan”. Some of their works were also selected and published in a well established local Chinese literary magazine “Equatorial Wind”.
Members also took part in various Chinese essay competitions at national level to expand their learning experience and to build up confidence in writing.

Drama club provides a platform for students to showcase their talents in directing, acting, and photography. Members have hands-on experience in making short film projects. They experienced the entire journey of conceptualization to completion, from planning, scripting, directing, shooting and to editing.
The members’ movie clip which showcased our student’s campus life was selected by Media Corp’s Roving DV contest and broadcasted nationwide on Channel 8 in January.
The club also took part in the 2nd National Secondary Schools Chinese Short Film Competition and the production was nominated for the Best Director award.
In its aim to provide a holistic education for the students, through the platform of trainings and competitions, the Drama club sparks the students’ imagination, encourages the teamwork spirit and enhances inter-disciplinary learning.

The Guzheng Ensemble was formed in 2007 to promote interest in Chinese cultural music among members, as well as to build up their character, team spirit and leadership qualities. The Guzheng Ensemble today has certainly grown from a small group with less than ten members to a stronger and united one of guzheng musicians
2009 has been a fruitful and meaningful year for us. As a first time participant in the Singapore Youth Festival Competition, we clinched a Silver Award. We also put up performances at our school’s public concert and Speech Day’s concert. As a young ensemble, we had put in a lot of hard work and efforts to prepare ourselves for the challenges. Our hard work and efforts are finally paid off.
The Guzheng Ensemble promises to strive for the best and continue our mission to develop our members into musical talents and in lifelong appreciation of guzheng music.
