As part of Rafflesia International School Puchong’s annual English week, all students (early years to year 11) were encouraged to participate in the break time activities provided outside the English room, including games such as ‘Bingo’, ‘Pictionary’, ‘Hangman’, and ‘Scrabble’, as well as a ‘Speak English’ Poster House Competition. Year 11 students also read stories to Early Years and Primary students, much to their delight. Finally, we ended the week with a day of performances in the lecture theatre. Happy English week!
