7+ Gran’s Short Stories
2.30pm & 3.30pm (30 min per session) | Modern Colony Gallery, Level 2 | Free
How has the life of a child changed between Singapore in the past and present? Our friendly grandmother Mdm Si-Hoe S.S., author of The House on Palmer Road, received Chinese tuition as a child just like many children today, but celebrated the British Empire Day in school instead of National Day. Come have a conversation with her and discover more surprising similarities and differences. Featuring engaging dramatisation and interactive hands-on activities, these storytelling sessions are a wonderful introduction to Singapore’s history and heritage, as told through our grandmas’ first-hand experiences!
Each session is limited to 15 children aged 7 to 12 years old, on a first come, first served basis. On-site registration starts from 1.45pm at the Glass Atrium, Level 2.
