Through our curriculum and various enrichment programmes, we seek to develop each Clementeen to be a proficient and confident user of their own Mother Tongue Language and to develop students’ interest in their own Mother Tongue culture. We nurture Clementeens who are able to exhibit the distinctive values or beliefs of their own Mother Tongue Culture.

Key Programmes

Mother Tongue Fortnight Programme

To enhance students' understanding and interest towards their own Mother Tongue culture through experiential learning, the Mother Tongue department organized the Mother Tongue Fortnight Programme for all students. A range of interesting MTL activities, such as Chinese paper cutting, opera mask painting, bean drawing, clay modelling, Malay Scabble, Indian Poetry Workshops, were organized to expose students to their individual Mother Tongue culture.

 In order to cultivate cross-cultural skills, socio-cultural sensitivity and global awareness, the Mother Tongue department has organized an overseas cultural immersion trip to Beijing from 29 Oct to 3 Nov 2019. Besides local school visits and attending a lecture in Peking University, students also had the opportunities to visit famous cultural sites such as the Great Wall of China, Forbidden Palace and Yuan Ming Yuan.
