Abstract: 双语政策一直以来是新加坡教育政策的一大亮点。长期以来,教育部旨在探讨通过不同措施来保留与推广我国的母语文化。本文通过结合了新加坡独立后的双语政策来说明教育部于 1990 年推出的“华文语文特选课程”(Chinese Language Elective Programme) 的由来,以及该课程如何向学生们推广中华文化。随着本地首次有初级学院合并的现象,本文将研究对象定位被指定合并的裕廊初级学院。通过个案研究着重分析裕初这所邻里学校如何在 2006 年成为第四所华文语文特选学校,从而打破非传统华校无需承担推广中华文化的责任的刻板印象。本文将分析裕初的发展与转型;从一开始招生情况惨淡,到成为“新谣摇篮”,以至后来的语特学校。研究范围锁定学院成为语特学校后至合并前夕,即 2006 年至 2018 年。学院在硬体设施上,设立了活动教室——三思雅舍;在课外辅助活动方面,举办了多彩多姿的活动,如实习计划,校园文化课程(茶艺、“新空下”、讲堂经纬),灯谜活动,海外浸濡计划。这些配合教育部的课程内容向不同学生,无论校内校外,推广中华文化,肩负了薪火相传的工作。最后,本文将对该学院合并的现象和现有的特别课程进行反思。 The Bilingual Policy has always been amongst the highlights of Singapore's education policy. Over the years, the Ministry of Education (MOE) has been exploring ways to preserve and promote our Mother Tongue languages and cultures through different measures. As part of their efforts to promote Chinese culture to students, the Chinese Language Elective Programme (CLEP) was introduced in 1990 to nurture promising students to attain a high level of proficiency in the Chinese Language and enhancing their understanding of the Chinese Literature. This thesis will discuss how Jurong Junior College despite being a neighbourhood school, which was merged with Pioneer Junior College recently, was selected to offer this elective programme in 2006 and in doing so, broke the stereotype that only traditional Chinese schools are responsible for the promotion of Chinese culture in undertaking such an important task. This thesis will analyse the development and transformation of Jurong Junior College, which used to be an unpopular choice, to being labelled as the cradle for Xinyao, and eventually the CLEP centre that we know of today. The scope of study will be from after the college becomes a CLEP centre till the eve of the merger, which falls between 2006 and 2018. For the facilities support, the college has set up an activity classroom to offer dedicated space for the CLEP programme in her People Development Block and for the enrichment programme component, the college has provided a variety of activities such as internship programme, campus culture activities (Tea Appreciation, National Xinyao Singing and Songwriting Competition and Writers’ Forum), Chinese Riddle and overseas immersion trips. These work in line with the MOE curriculum to promote the Chinese culture to different students, both on and off campus. This study will also reflect on the phenomenon of the merger of Jurong Junior College and the existing signature programmes under the Bilingual Policy.
