Hosting Programme for Cheonan Yongso Elementary School, South Korea, 12-14 August 2014
In our effort to extend our students’ learning beyond the shores of Singapore, our school has been collaborating with Cheonan Yongso Elementary School, South Korea on a home-stay immersion programme. This means that our upper primary students get a chance to stay with a host family in Korea to experience and appreciate Korean culture first-hand and to establish networks with our Korean counterparts. In exchange, the Koreans will make their visit to Singapore for our students to host them to experience Singapore's multi-cultural society.
The hosting programme serves to:
- enable them to have a global outlook and instill in them a sense of national identity
- strengthen their social emotional learning (SEL) competencies
- enable them to appreciate and value cultural diversity
- broaden their perspectives from the experiences of others around the world
