3) P5 China Immersion Trip (2015)

A six-day Cultural Immersion Trip to Shanghai and Hangzhou was organized for selected Primary 5 pupils during the June school holidays. The school immersion trip to Shanghai Jiao Tong University Elementary School (交通大学附属小学) provided our girls the opportunity to experience the school life in China. Our pupils attended a variety of lessons like art and dance classes. Apart from lessons, having meals prepared by the school in the classrooms was also a new experience for our girls. The programme has provided a platform for our girls to cultivate self-reliance, independence and foster camaraderie.
