No 1 Experimental School Affiliated to Sichuan Normal University Visit

On Friday, 12 July 2017, WGS proudly hosted the No 1 Experimental School Affiliated to Sichuan Normal University.  The main objective of the visit was to provide both the visiting and hosting students the opportunity to share and experience WGS education as well as to interact with the students of the visiting school. Students and educators of the visiting school were also given insights into the daily learning routines in Woodgrove Secondary School.

Exchange of souvenirs 

The visiting school which comprised of three educators and twenty-nine students arrived at WGS at 7 am. They were brought to the Media Resource Library where they were warmly welcomed by our Principal, Mr Chee. Thereafter, exchange of gifts from the school took place followed by a group photo taking session.

Learning together

After the welcoming session, the participants from the visiting school were brought on a brief tour around WGS compound. This tour of the school allowed the participants to get to appreciate and understand the general environment of the school. The visitors were given the opportunity to experience learning the Woodgrove way.  Students from the visiting school also joined our students during their recess so as to help them better understand what a typical school life is like in Singapore.

 The participants were also presented with information on WGS education and Niche Programme. Hosted by the students from 2E2, the visitors were given insights into a student’s life by participating in lessons in Mathematics, Geography and Physical Education by Mdm Zuraidah, Ms Nicholich Melissa and Mr Lee Tze Hoong respectively. Throughout their lessons for Mathematics where they further explored the concepts of trigonometry, the students were fully engaged and had meaningful interactions with the teacher as well as their hosting counterparts.
