Every year, the school organises overseas learning journeys to different countries in Asia and students are given a choice to opt for a trip that best meets their interest and needs.
The objectives of the internationalisation programme are:
- to develop in our students the 21st century competencies of global awareness, cross-cultural skills and sensitivities;
- to expose our students to Asia and the world and sensitise them to the place of Singapore to the world;
- to deepen our students’ commitment and rootedness to Singapore; and
- to facilitate the acquisition of life skills and interaction between our students and students of other countries
Virtual Trips for Internationalisation (VTIE)
The virus may keep our borders shut but it cannot suppress our students’ enthusiasm for learning and interacting with their Asian counterparts. In lieu of the yearly TIE trips, the Primary 5 students ‘visited’ China, India and Indonesia virtually through the virtual TIE programme (VTIE). Over the virtual TIE sessions, our students had a wonderful experience interacting and getting to know more about the students from the three countries, gaining new friendships across the waters.
