The March school holidays are a couple of days away and … … jeepers! March holidays? That’s frightening, isn’t it? Wasn’t New Year’s Eve fireworks yesterday evening?!?

But that’s just me, I suppose. For any student, especially the younger ones, one whole school term must feel like an eternity.

In other words, they deserve a break. A full day of fun! Parents, if you’re looking for a great place to spend an educational day with your children, take a look at what the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) has to offer.

There’s a dragon playground, a special exhibition, and of course, the permanent SINGAPO人 Exhibition. Other than fun, your young ones can learn about Singaporean Chinese heritage. About the many local Chinese traditions that are still vibrant today too.

BeLONG’s Art Playground

1. BeLONG’s Art Playground

I previously featured this dragon-inspired playground in January, and the good news is, it’s still at the rooftop garden of SCCC! But only till Apr 30. This year being the dragon year and all that, and with the superb city scenery surrounding the rooftop, this nostalgic attraction is sure to delight both adults and kids. More details here!

Secret Ingredients Travelling Exhibition

2. Secret Ingredients Travelling Exhibition

Singapore is a food paradise. There are so many iconic Chinese Singaporean dishes too. But have you ever wondered how these dishes came to be?

The Secret Ingredients Travelling Exhibition reveals the stories, in the form of “secret ingredients.” Unlike your usual food ingredients in a recipe, these are “cultural” ingredients. Story titbits hidden in Singapore’s iconic dishes.

Discover and decode them all with your children! Begin your mission to uncover these secret ingredients at the Briefing Station from now till May 24. More details here.

Hi K, I’ve Got This: Drawing Perseverance | Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre

3. Hi K, I’ve Got This: Drawing Perseverance

What is perseverance?

From now till May 1, explore this straightforward yet complex virtue with Hi K, I’ve Got This: Drawing Perseverance, an exhibition by Singaporean illustrator Paige Lee.

Through lively illustrations, Paige shares everyday examples of resilience triumphing over life’s challenges. Inspirational and uplifting, Paige’s personal perspectives on how we can live our lives with perseverance will be a valuable lesson to all children. More details here.

SINGAPO人 Interactive Exhibition
The exhibition begins with a futuristic tunnel with video presentations. This is the view looking outwards. My feature image above shows the view leading inwards. (The tunnel feels Star Trekky, doesn’t it?)

4. SINGAPO人 Exhibition

I featured this permanent exhibition in Oct 2022 and I repeat what I wrote back then. It’s well worth anyone’s time. It’s well-themed and well-organised too.

Visiting it wouldn’t make you an instant expert on Singaporean Chinese history and heritage, but you will still gain a deeper understanding of the diverse traditions, values, and contributions of the local Chinese community, through multimedia displays, interactive installations, and engaging narratives.

Definitely a permanent showcase in Singapore that’s not to be missed. More details here.

The Good Hood: Where Values Come Home Exhibition

5. The Good Hood: Where Values Come Home Exhibition

Okay, this exhibition is NOT at the SCCC; it ended its run there on Feb 7.

As a traveling exhibition, though, the exhibition will soon transfer to SingPost Centre. From Mar 2 to 31, The Good Hood: Where Values Come Home Exhibition, SCCC’s first exhibition co-curated with the Indian Heritage Centre and the Malay Heritage Centre will continue to feature 10 universal values shared across various ethnicities in Singapore, showcased through captivating storytelling and an interactive approach.

What better way to learn about love, kindness, and filial piety this school holiday?

Besides, the annual Geylang Serai Light-Up and Ramadan Market will be starting on Mar 8. After enjoying the exhibition at SingPost Centre, you can stroll over to the festive market for an evening of charming lights and great food.
