Poems in a Pandemic | a feature by The Star

Showing their commitment towards recognising community-spirited school initiatives, The Star featured an article about the recent online Poetry Slam at Rafflesia International School in their online and print editions this week. We are thrilled to achieve this positive publicity for the event, which was designed to enable students to connect creatively during the time of the Movement Control Order and give voice to their feelings about environmental issues. We will continue to organise events for our students that enable them to develop confident literacy skills and deepen their global consciousness.

Designing E-Card | By the New Media Club

The Malaysian frontliners have been heroic and selfless in fighting the pandemic to keep us all safe. Equipped with their creativity and skills in using the Canva software, our students from the New Media Club at Sekolah Menengah Rafflesia Puchong created the beautiful e-cards that you see here, as a sign of gratitude and appreciation to them.

Preparation for Science Week

 

“Does the colour of food affect our taste?” “Does gender have an effect on human reaction time?”

These are some of the questions that our Year 4 students at Rafflesia International School Kajang sought to answer through the process of the scientific method. They learned about the scientific method, the importance scientific variables, conducted investigations and gathered data on their findings. They certainly enjoyed their journey in science and look forward to sharing it with other young scientists at the school through their video presentations.

The students are certainly enjoying their scientific explorations and they look forward to sharing their results with the others in their video presentations that will be broadcast to other young scientists at school.

First Week of School Reopening | Sekolah Rendah Rafflesia Puchong

It’s all a buzz with our young ones creatively greet each other while maintaining social distancing as they return to school. Despite having to adhere to the SOPs of the new norm, they are extremely happy to be back at school to learn and play with their friends once again! Here they are having fun as they learn about the “Parts of the Body” in Bahasa Malaysia.

Online Learning | Rafflesia International School Kajang

Even as we prepare for our students to return to school, we have been providing highly engaging online learning experience for our students. At Rafflesia International School Kajang for example, our Year 3 students are learning all about water on planet Earth in their final IPC unit of the year: On Tap. This week, they explored the process of cloud formation by creating the “cloud in a jar” experiment at home. Together we also looked at how pollutants such as oil react with water and salt by making lava lamps.

Upon their return to school this week, our young scientists will reflect upon their investigations as they prepare for their Exit Point sharing sessions where they will present what they have learnt to an audience of socially distanced parents.

Quilling | CCA

The art of quilling focuses on one’s fine motor skills, especially in terms of coordination and strength. It is a great way to develop better hand-eye coordination and can also be very therapeutic. Here are some of the amazing 3D quilling artworks by our Quilling CCA students at Rafflesia International School Puchong!

 

CCA | SD-HAT CHALLENGE

As the excitement of school reopening finally dawns upon the young ones, our SD-HAT Challenge has come to an end and they are ready to put them on once they are back at school. Our Sport Houses – Tiger (Orange), Phoenix (Blue), Qilin (Green) and Dragon (Yellow) – have had tremendous fun with the e-competition and have each collected lots of house points. It is a fun way to ease them into the new normal with social distancing.

Stay safe everybody!

Young Artists | Mural Art CCA

Our Online Mural Art CCA students at Rafflesia International School Kajang are very excited to be returning to school next week. In fact, our young artists have each produced their own pieces of art in celebration of their return to school! We look forward to having them back at school and nurturing their creative skills as we move on with the new normal.

Welcome Back, Nursery, Reception and Year 11 Students!

It has been an absolute pleasure to welcome our Nursery, Reception and Year 11 students back to the Rafflesia International School Kajang campus today! With social distancing measures in place, increased sanitisation routines and regular briefings for our students, our community feels a little different – however, our ‘new normality’ has not prevented our enduring passion for learning! At each end of the age range, we have been impressed by the ways our amazing students have adapted to the new routines.

 

All About Water | An IPC Lesson

Here are our Year 1 students of Rafflesia International School Puchong and their mesmerising creations as part of their IPC entry point themed: All About Water. It was a fun and engaging way to learn about the importance of water in our daily lives through activities such as M&M rainbows, Water Arrow and density using oil and water.
