Abstract: 新加坡“华校”为早期的华人提供了教育的机会,不仅提高了新加坡整个社会的素养,也为新加坡培育了一群真正的华英双语双文化人才。虽然传统“华校”走入历史,但“华校”的传统信念和精神却没有因此而消失。然而,“华校”如何继续传承中华传统文化成为华人社会所关注的话题。本文以醒南小学为研究对象,将研究范围定在1988年之后,旨在通过个案研究,着重分析醒南这所邻里学校如何在遵从政府的教育政策的前提下,持续以传承中华传统文化为使命,从而打破只有特选学校才有责任承担传承中华传统文化重任的刻板印象。醒南的前身是一所传统的“华校”,一直以来都很重视中华文化的传承。在成为西区第三校群的华文教育与中华文化学习中心后更是不遗余力,先后推行了各种各样的中华文化活动与计划共学生自由选择与参与。旨在激发学生对中华文化的兴趣,促进他们对母语的学习。这些活动与计划包括在课程内容中融入中华文化元素,如千句文教学法和华文部集体自创的辅助教材;策划母语双周和乐学周作为课外中华文化的浸濡;在校园建立传承“唐城”精神的“华萃轩”。这些活动与计划在符合教育部教材的情况下,推广于醒南的校内外,向更多人弘扬中华文化。The Chinese School in Singapore has provided an opportunity for Chinese education in the early years, which not only improved the literacy of Singapore’s society but also cultivated a group of true Chinese-English bilingual and bicultural talents. Although the traditional Chinese School became history, the traditional beliefs and essence of the Chinese School have not disappeared. However, how do the schools in Singapore contributes to the continuation of the traditional Chinese culture has become a topic of concern for the Chinese community. The purpose of this thesis is to analyse how Xingnan as a neighbourhood school continues to contribute to the mission of continuing traditional Chinese culture under the premise of catering to the government’s education system. Thus, breaking the stereotype that only Special Assistance Plan (SAP) schools need to take on the responsibility for the continuation of traditional Chinese culture. Xingnan Primary School was initially a traditional Chinese School started up by the Chinese community. It has always placed great emphasis on the continuation of Chinese culture. After becoming the W3 Centre of Learning for Chinese Language and Culture, it continues to offer its student body an array of Chinese cultural related activities up to this date,。This aim to stimulate students’ interest in Chinese culture and promote students’ learning of the mother tongue language. Such activities include the building of Hua Cui Xuan which aims to continue the traditions of Tang Dynasty Village. Chinese cultural elements are also added in the Chinese curriculum, such as the Qian Ju Wen Approach and the creation of auxiliary materials by the Chinese department. Furthermore, the school also immersed the students with Chinese culture outside of classroom learning by organising events such as the Mother Tongue Fortnight and Mother Tongue EXCITE Week. These activities are kept in line with the Ministry of Education (MOE) syllabus, to promote Chinese culture within the school and beyond, which contribute to the mission of continuing traditional Chinese culture.
