Hosting Programme for Cheonan Yongso Elementary School, South Korea, 12-14 August 2014

KOREA HOSTING 8-2014.jpg

Overview

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:
  1. enable them to have a global outlook and instill in them a sense of national identity
  2. strengthen their social emotional learning (SEL) competencies
  3. enable them to appreciate and value cultural diversity
  4. broaden their perspectives from the experiences of others around the world
