School Visit by Jakarta Penabur School (Indonesia)
On Tuesday, 22 January 2019, WGS proudly hosted the above school. 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.
The visiting school which comprised three educators and forty-one students arrived at WGS at 7 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 Chit Yeng. Thereafter, exchange of gifts between the hosting and visiting schools took place followed by a group photo taking session.
Students from the visiting school were given the opportunity to sit in and experience a lesson on Science by Mdm Tan Hwee Lin, as well as a Mathematics lesson conducted by Mdm Dawn Tai.
Although the visiting students were shy and quiet at first, their new WGS buddies from class 2N2 rose to the occasion and were friendly and warmly welcomed them. They also 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 teachers 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.
After which, the visiting students went through the Applied Learning Programme (ALP) with Mr Tan Woon Siong and Mdm Samsiyah before being brought on a school tour.
At the end of the visit, all participants gave positive feedback about their entire experience at WGS.
