Learning doesn't have to be confined to the classroom. As a kid, my favourite post-exam activity was when my school organised field trips to cultural spots so that we could learn more about the communities they are based on.

From 13 to 21 March 2021, the Indian Heritage Centre has a whole range of fun drop-in craft activities, guided tours and experiential programmes. They not only appeal to nostalgic adults like me but young families as well. Check out the list of highlights below:
