The ISFPTA Community Services Team is hosting the Qilin’s Tales Competition 2020 again! This year the competition will focus on Grade 4 students. Grade 4 students will be working on the Qilin's Tales at 5-Dimension class on 28 February, they can carry on with their creation at home and submit their works to the Primary Library by 24th April, 2020 (Friday). 

The aim of this competition is to:

  • Arouse our G4 students’ awareness of other children their age, living in very different communities overseas.
  • Tap into the valuable resources of our G4 student's creative minds, on drawing and narrative writing.
  • Provide simple reading materials for overseas children who have little access to reading
  • Create a joint services activity between the Primary students and Secondary students

If you are a Grade 4 stduent, and is interested in narrative writing and drawing, COME MAKE YOUR OWN QILIN'S TALES.

The Secondary CCA students, Right to Act group, will take copies of the winning entries during ELP trips, and distribue to local schools in countries such as Thailand, Camnodia, Laos and Vietnam.  These Qilin's Tales booklets that you design, will provide some interesting and fun educatinal materials for local children.
