China School Visit Programme
On Wednesday, 31 January 2018, WGS proudly hosted 33 educators from China. The main objective of the visit was to provide the Chinese educators with an overview of WGS Education and WGS Staff Management, as well as to introduce them to the Distinctive Programmes of the school. These educators were also given insights into the daily learning routines in Woodgrove Secondary School.

They also partook in a D&T experience of making a candy dish.

The educators were enthusiastic and eager to know more about the education system in Singapore, in particular the secondary level. Many questions were asked with regards to our education system and the syllabus implemented by the ministry. The WGS education was also shared with the educators. They were extremely intrigued by the Woodgrove Rainforest and Eco Garden while they were on the school tour. They were also interested to find out more about how students are being streamed into different academic tracks.
