 Through this programme, we want to achieve the following objectives:

  • Pupils will learn scientific knowledge and enhance environmental awareness using Chinese as the medium of instruction.
  • Pupils will learn to think and live independently under various planned activities.
  • Pupils will get to share and learn about the differences in culture, customs and values, through reflections and interactions with Taicang pupils, and have a globalised outlook.
  • Pupils will internalize our school values (Team spirit, Graciousness, Perseverance and Self-discipline) in them through participation in school activities.

 Learning Activities:

           Our pupils will arrange pupils to undergo immersion programme, experience modern farm life, 4 nights of home stay and learning journey. The pupils are required to complete a Science project after the trip.
