Social Distancing Hat Challenge (SD-HAT CHALLENGE)

Keeping children safe is our motto. Our Sekolah Rendah Rafflesia Social Distancing Hat Challenge (SD-HAT Challenge) has inspired a deep understanding of health awareness and how to maintain social distancing in a fun and creative way. As the new norm takes a toll on all of us, the young ones have boldly taken up the challenge to produce their own SD-HATs, ready to be worn once school re-opens.

Here, Arief Rafael from Std 2 is sharing his experience and inspiration in making his own SD-HAT!

Stay Strong, Stay Safe and Stay Home.

A Greater Online Learning Experience

As Online Learning at Rafflesia develops and evolves, we introduce wonderful new experiences for our students. Here’s what Victoria Manalang Tan Fu Hui of Form 2R from Sekolah Menengah Rafflesia Puchong has to say about it – we look forward to an even more exciting semester ahead!

Mental and Physical Health Awareness Campaign

Year 11 students from Rafflesia International School Puchong designed posters as part of an awareness campaign. The objective was to advice teenagers on how to maintain and develop their mental and physical health during the restricted movement period. This is an example of how cross-subject teaching is involved in the learning process.

Words for Our Word Poetry Slam

With school events cancelled off across the globe, Rafflesia International School Kajang forged ahead with our recent Words for Our Word poetry slam by hosting live it online. Guest judges included Dhinesha Karthigesu, Malaysian National Poetry Slam Champion and host of The Creative Curry Podcast alongside Emily Thomas, co-founder of MY Poetry School. The event was co-hosted by Year 11 student Twilight Siew and Rafflesia English Teacher Cat Brogan – a BBC Edinburgh Fringe Slam Winner.

In line with Rafflesia’s Go Green initiative, the theme encouraged environmentally conscious performances that allowed the young poets to offer their perspective on our world. After the event, judge Dhinesha Karthigesu commented: “The Words for Our world Poetry Competition left me in awe of the calibre and ability of the students involved. Rafflesia International School should be proud and commended for helping to usher in a new wave of inter-school competition in light of the pandemic.” Certainly, we believe that the event created a blueprint for how students can connect virtually, attract a wide audience and generate a permanent record of their creativity.

Space Exploration

These year 5 students from Rafflesia International School Puchong were selected by the IPC Space Academy to undergo training for a space mission to Mars. One of the highlights was a challenge was to design their own spacesuits and gear using recycled materials. Exercising their imagination and creativity, they designed the impressive 3D models that you can see here!

STEM Online Classes

Mandarin Lessons Made Fun & Easy
