Thumbs Up (大拇指): A Student Publication by Singapore Press Holdings

Thumbs Up (大拇指) is a Chinese newspaper published in Singapore for school children. It was launched by Deputy Prime Minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong (Current Prime Minister) on 15 January 2000. Most primary schools in Singapore subscribe to the newspaper for their Chinese students, to improve their Chinese language.

It is targeted at students between Pri 3-6.

The tabloid-sized Chinese newspaper presents news to students in a perspective that their young mind can understand, so as to improve their general knowledge and Chinese language ability. The newspaper reports both international and local news, with fun and games elements embedded within the articles.


Thumbs up adopts a fun and interactive editorial approach, with the use of colourful pictures and illustrations to appeal to its young readers.

Thumbs Up organises several activities throughout the year to engage young readers, one of which is the Young Reporters Camp for students from subscribing schools, offering hands-on training for them to report on school-related news and personalities.

The newspaper is published once a week by Singapore Press Holdings.
