Cultural & Language Enrichment Visit to Brisbane, 2004

 

 

The study tour was organized by the Nedgee International College, which offered English classes for our students every morning and arranged a great variety of activities in the afternoon. Students were given the opportunity to be immersed in English, to become part of a family, to integrate with local students, to develop some new hobbies and to indulge in new experiences. Four teachers and forty-five students, thirty-five of them from SFCC and seven of them from Sacred Heart Canossian College of Commerce, took part in this overseas activity.

 

Comments from students:

 

- I knew better about myself and have learned to respect other cultures
- I made friends with students from different nationalities, such as Japanese, Korean and Thai. I had a great and memorable experience.
- Australians are so nice and friendly. I really miss my host family.
- I learned better English and practised my English more.Friendship - On the last day of our stay in Brisbane, we cried, just because it is
so hard to say goodbye to our honestay familites.

 

Fun - I tried many exciting rides in the Dream World and the Movie World.

Freedom - Under the warm sun and the clear sky, we relaxed in the school backyard and our worries seemed to distant.

Fruitful - We learnt about the Aboriginal culture in lessons and through outings. We also made friends from other countries!

Education and Cultural Trip to London 2006

 

You may think one should not expect too much from an eighteen-day educational trip to London, the first of its kind held by our school. Yet, the ‘British’ summer in 2006 was indeed an eye opener for all its participants, both the students and the accompanying teachers. We made friends with schoolmates from Form 1 to 3, had a lot of fun and experienced living independently of our parents. Most importantly, we learnt more about the English culture and became more confident users of the English language.

 

‘One, two, three,...’twenty four,’ said Ms. I. Ho, Ms. R. Lee and Ms. A. Tang. ‘Good. You’re all here. Let’s proceed to Customs.’ Our trip began. It all began with us waving goodbye to our mums and dads in the departure lounge.

 

It was not at all easy to fight jet lag on the first day of our trip, especially after a long-haul flight from Hong Kong. I still remember entering Langley Park School for girls for the first time. We climbed up two flights of stairs to reach a room where we were greeted by a cheerful teacher in a summery floral dress. That was the very first workshop we attended - the etiquette workshop. There we learnt some British table manners which were essential for our survival with our host families.

 

After the workshop, we all sat in the shade of an enormous mushroom- shaped willow tree at the school gate waiting anxiously for our host families. What will our host mums and dads be like? Will we get along? What will their house be like? Will I get used to staying there? We all had one question after another until we saw our guardians approaching us with beaming smiles. They must have forgotten the fact that
we were total strangers to them. Our instinct told us that our apprehensions were unfounded and our experiences in the ensuing two weeks were solid proof that we were right.

 

From Monday to Friday, rain or shine, our host family members drove us to school early in the morning. Every day, we had an English class. In the afternoon, we attended workshops of various kinds. In the dance workshops, we learnt a bit of Scottish dancing and practised a dance we would perform in the farewell presentation. In the poetry workshops, we wrote haikus, shape poems and learnt to recite Traveller’ in a choral speaking performance. The drama workshops were especially interesting. We did story-telling, freeze-frames, tableaux and acted out a scene from Romeo and Juliet.

 

Our host mums and dads took us around the town whenever they had time. We strolled down the main streets of Bromlet, we barbecued at their friends’ houses, we picnicked in a huge park with a duck pond, we chatted, we laughed and they took us in their arms
when we felt homesick. We had unforgettable packed lunches - freshly made sandwiches or pasta salads our host mum prepared for us every morning. We will be forever grateful for their hospitality.

 

What was the best part of the trip? No doubt, it was the excursion every Saturday. No lessons, no homework, no hassie, only fun and play. We visited Cambridge, Chiselhurst Caves and Leeds Castles and saw a musical, The Lion King, in the West End of London.
The Chiselhurst Caves were eerie. It was pitch-dark and freezing cold inside, a mere five degrees Celsius. According to the tour guide, the caves weer once used as an air raid shelter and had electric lighting, a chapel and a hospital during World War II. It had a distinctly menacing atmosphere which reminded us of creepy horror movies.

 

By the seventeenth day, the realization dawned that the tour had inevitably come to a close. It all ended with us waving goodbye to our host mums and dads at the gate of Langley Park School, and a few hours later, our beloved tutors, Lorna and Katherine at the departure lounge. Many of us tried to hold back our tears but it was in vain - they have all left indelible impressions in our hearts.

I.T. Exposure Trip to Singapore 2011

 

 

In this past summer holiday, from 12th to 16th July, 40 students, together with 4 of our teachers went on to an exposure trip to Singapore. The first stop in Singapore is the Discovery Centre, where the history of Singapore is displayed. Different countries such as Britain, Japan and Malaysia had governed Singapore. In 1965, Singapore became an independent country. Information there is shown in interactive way; for instance, visitors can work as a professional reporter! In the studio “On Location Reporter”, Mr. Shek reported on Singapore’s aviation news. We all enjoyed the playback!

 

On the second day of the trip, we visited St. Anthony's Canossian Secondary School, an all-girls school founded by the Canossian Missions. The musical band used some special musical instruments to play and welcome us. We were all very pleased and
excited about this school visit. We met with the young and energetic Principal, Ms. Martens. She introduced the school history, mission, teachers’ creed, staff and the students’ achievements in academic studies and extra-curricular activities. In the second part of the introduction, the ICT teacher, Mr. Mohamed, also explained their ICT vision and the four ICT goals to us. When he showed us the video made by the students, we were amazed and impressed because they could purely make videos like the news report with high quality by using some common video editing software. We all appreciate their endurance as editing and combining different video clips takes a
long time.

 

After that, we chatted with the girl guides about our hobbies and school life for a while. They then took us on a campus tour! We strolled around the school and visited some classrooms. For instance, in the computer room, we learn how to make a CV. We also joined an ICT lesson, and had a quiz about the service standards of Singapore on their school website for their English projects. The students there were very willing to help us. They claimed that they seldom sit in an ordinary classroom to have lessons nowadays. We then played poker cards with the girl guides after the lessons. The people at St. Anthony’s are hospitable and amiable. We got endless topics of conversation with the girl guides. We also exchanged our means of contact.

 

Through this visit, we have learned how IT is widely used in education in Singapore. The students hand in their homework through the
Extranet. They even sign in to school every morning using their thumbprints! IT is very useful in learning and is closely related to us. We had a memorable learning time with the students at St. Anthony’s.The next day we visited the Nanyang Technological University, which was an inspiring trip. We had hands-on experience of the latest technological developments of the research team at the Centre for Advanced Media Technology. There were many interesting and innovative gadgets. The software designed by Ms. Sim and her teammates uses the web cam in an iPad to create a 3D image! The computer can show the 3D view of the image or the historical event that had happened in that place. We were both amazed by the advanced technology!

 

Other amazing software included the Chinese learning game is also amazing.When we put some simple Chinese characters such as 牛 in
front of the camera, the image of a cow will be displayed on the computer screen. It is even clever enough to show the picture of a carton of milk when the words 牛奶 are put next to each other! We have also tried the multi-touch table, which allows us to explore the
design of a whole building just by a touch of a human hand on the floor plan displayed on the multi-touch table. The research engineer, Mr. Andreas, told us that he’s been working on this project for two years, from designing the building to the implementation of the software.

 

From this visit, we were so impressed by how technology is developing nowadays. It was fascinating to try out these new gadgets. It was a wonderful experience to try out these newly developed softwares. On the fourth day, we went to Canossian Eduplex. Canossian Eduplex comprises Canossa Convent Primary, Canossian School, Magdalene’s Kindergarten, Canossaville Children’s Home and the Convent of the Sisters. We spent the whole morning at Canossa Convent Primary School.

 

That day was a co- curricular Activities Day, so we got to see the aesthetic performances of the students. First, we joined the choir practice in the theatrette. The choir had won awards in Singapore Youth Festival Competitions. The choir, known as Voices of Youth,
belted out their melodies heartily. We then followed the majestic and enchanting tunes to the Band Room and look the jazz band practice. The talented students play the instruments really well! We also joined the Contemporary Dance Team in the Hall. The students taught us some simple dance steps. The girls bent and flexed, swung and stretched, showing us what they had learnt. We all felt refreshed after stretching our arms and legs!

 

Apart from extra-curricular activities, we also joined their lessons such as the English lesson. We joined the primary school girls in creating a story on the Mac Book. Each pair of students had to include a good character and a bad guy in their story. After that, We went to the Camino Room, that is the Archive Room, we learned of the development of the Eduplex. There is the painting of our Foundress, Magdalen of Canossa, whom we are all familiar with. Sister Mandy also shared the history of the Canossian Missions with us.

 

We have learned more about the work of the Canossian Sisters in Singapore. The Eduplex is the result of a dream and following in the footsteps of St. Magdalen, reaching out to embrace all persons in order to develop their full potential. The five sectors of the
Canossian Eduplex work together towards a mission of Love, sharing resources, space, and facilities to give a holistic and effective education to the children. We went to the Infocomm Experience Centre, or in short, iExperience on the last day of the trip. The exhibits were divided into four major themes: Live,Work, Learn and Interact. We were impressed by the Tele-presence technology. It allows people from different locations to meet, discuss and share information. Without such technology, people’s interactions would be restricted by location and time. Another invention is an electrical global map with touch screen. “Senseable City” presents a different perspective of
Singapore’s urban dynamics. It shows details of streets, buildings and even other features when magnify it. It is amazing how a map on paper can be evolved into a touch-screened map. It shows the advancement in electronic visual display in Singapore. Touch-screen technology is becoming more common in our daily lives. I am sure it can be applied to other fields in the future.

 

The Singapore government has made a lot of efforts to attain the present achievements. We all hope the people in Singapore and Hong Kong can work together to discover new possibilities. This Singapore IT Exposure Trip allows us to know more about Singapore’s culture, history, economic conditions and how the Singaporeans made good use of technology in their daily lives. This trip indeed brought me a lot of precious moments with our tour guides, teachers and schoolmates. Furthermore, it has enriched my knowledge on the use of technology.
