Internationalisation Programme 2016 – China Sichuan Longquanyi Educators’ Visit
On Friday, 5 August 2016, 26 educators from the China Sichuan Longquanyi District Education Bureau visited WGS. The main objective of the visit was to provide both the visiting and hosting educators the opportunity to share an overview of WGS education and our staff management.
There is also an introduction of our School Niche Programmes – Applied Learning Programme (Material Science for Sustainable Living) and Learning for Life Programme (Community and Youth Leadership).
The visiting educators arrived at WGS at 9 am. The first item on the agenda was the welcoming and photo-taking session by our school leaders with the visiting educators. They were grouped into two groups during the activities.
After the welcoming session, Mr Toh Mun Yeen and Ms Serene Khiew accompanied the visitors for a brief tour around the WGS compound. This introduction of the school allowed the educators to get to know our school better. One group was invited to take part in an English lesson conducted by Mrs Jacqueline Tan and Ms Seah Xin Ni.
Another group was invited to take part in a Math lesson conducted by Mdm Teo Siew Choo. Then they had a first-hand try out for the D & T experience conducted by Mr Maniam.
Once the lessons were over, the educators were invited to the MRL for a tea break. After the tea break, there was a presentation by school leaders and middle managers on WGS education and Niche Programmes.
In the final session, all visiting educators discussed and provided feedback about their entire experience at WGS. It was a fruitful learning experiences for the China educators and WGS too.
