SINGAPORE - Forty pupils will win an exclusive chance to see Singapore's port at work in the first team prize for the Little Red Dot Passport programme.

The school which sends in the most completed entries from the latest edition of the passport, launched on Tuesday at Temasek Primary School, will win the learning journey.

Over the next six weeks, the Little Red Dot Maritime Reading Passport, sponsored by Singapore Maritime Foundation this time, will take pupils through six weeks of activities based on articles in The Straits Times and Little Red Dot, its weekly publication for primary schools.

For instance, the first instalment saw pupils learning about different types of ships and their functions.

All pupils who complete the activities in the passport can enjoy discounts at various attractions such as at S.E.A Aquarium and Skyline Luge Sentosa.

One pupil will win the grand prize - a trip to Hong Kong Disneyland for a family of four.

Lai Hsien Hao, 10, a Primary 4 pupil from Temasek Primary School, is gunning to go on the learning journey, and plans to get his friends to pitch in by getting them to complete their passports.

"The place we would get to visit is usually closed to public so it's a very rare chance," he said.
