After last year’s experiences of Boston, this year will see us go to even bigger heights, with sixteen pupils plus staff, travelling to Singapore in February.
This trip is fully supported by funding from the Turing Scheme, which aims to encourage school exchanges across different continents so that young people are given the chance to explore different cultures and have experiences that are life changing.
Over 180 young people from Years 11 to 13 applied, and after a rigorous application and interview process, involving staff and senior leadership team within school, sixteen individuals were selected.
The group will be visiting The Commonwealth Secondary School, which also teaches character education, but in a different manner to ourselves. Our pupils and students will be taking an active part in the school day, attending lessons, and extra-curricular activities. Followed by teaching their own lessons through planned projects. Pupils will then have the opportunity to discover more about the history and culture of Singapore, including their ambition of becoming a net zero emission country by 2050.
Trips being considered and planned include: Universal Studios, Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, Singapore Zoo, Sky Deck, Gardens by the Marina Bay and not to forget the Lunar New Year Celebrations in Chinatown. We look forward to hearing more about their adventures!
Well done to our successful applicants and reserves:
