Trips for International Experience (TIE)
Overseas Learning Experiences for Intercultural Understanding
Overseas learning journey are valuable school experiences in which students have the opportunity to gain deeper understanding of other cultures outside of Singapore.
In 2018, our school organized 3 such learning journeys. They are
· 5 Days 4 Nights CULTURAL IMMERSION TRIP TO GUANGZHOU, CHINA
· 4 days 3 Nights CULTURAL IMMERSION TRIP TO HONG KONG
· 5 days 4 Nights CULTURAL AND ASESTHETIC IMMERSION TRIP TO TAIpei, taiWAN
The trips encourage students to value their own cultures and beliefs and those of others from diverse cultures. The school collaborates with local schools and organises school immersion as part of the learning experience. During the visits to the local schools, our students would interact with the local peers. We also organises visits to local cultural sites to expose them to the rich history and heritage of each country. These activities help our students to be more culturally sensitive, and be more appreciative of Singapore as they reflect on the commonalities and differences between Singapore and country of visit.
The school also believes that these extended learning platforms would teach students valuable lessons such as empathy, respect and their responsibility as a Singapore Citizen.
Our school will be sustaining these trips in 2019 for selected Secondary Two and Three students.
