No. 1 Experimental Middle School Affliated to Sichuan Normal University Exchange Programme 

On Monday, 5 February 2018, WGS proudly hosted the above school. The main objective of the visit was to provide the Chinese students with the opportunity to share and experience WGS education as well as our students to interact with their foreign counterparts. Students and educators of the visiting school were also given insights into the daily learning routines in Woodgrove Secondary School.

The visiting school which comprised of two educators and twenty-three students arrived at WGS at 7.15 am. They then observed our morning routine of singing the national anthem and saying the pledge. The visitors were then warmly welcomed and introduced to the school by our Principal, Mr Chee. Thereafter, exchange of gifts from the school took place followed by a group photo-taking session.

Students from the visiting school were immediately immersed in a typical school day experience at Woodgrove. Hosted by 2E4 class, they joined in the first lesson of the day which was a Physical Education (PE) lesson. The visitors had a good time playing team building games which had been planned by their host, the 2E4 students, under the guidance of their PE teacher, Mr Raymond.

They were also given the opportunity to sit in and experience a lesson on Science by Ms Lim Hwee Peng, followed by a D&T experience conducted by Mr Maniam. Although the visitors did have difficulty due to language issues, their new buddies rose to the occasion and rendered all the assistance they could to make the visitors’ learning meaningful. As a result, the students were fully engaged and had meaningful interactions with the teacher as well as their hosting counterparts. Going for recess at the canteen was something different the visiting students experienced in a school context. More importantly, our visitors were also exposed to the food of different races and cultures that our school canteen has to offer.
