Overseas Immersion Trip 2019

A team of 8 teachers and 36 Primary 5 students has embarked on the trip to Hong Kong on 13 March 2019 and will return on 17 March 2019.  

The team will have the opportunity to learn from, and learn with the students at Taoist Association Wun Tsuen School (Hong Kong). The team will share with the Hong Kong students about the school’s environment efforts through innovation. They will sit in an Art lesson, computer lesson, STEAM project sharing and participate in a Tublock workshop.  

Besides the school experience, the team will be visiting places of cultural, historical, environment and subject-related interest such as Hong Kog Housing Authority Exhibition Centre, Hong Kong Space museum, Hong Kong Science Museum, Hong Kong History Museum, Legislative Council of Hong Kong, e-Farm, and others.  

Through this programme, we hope that the team will be more globally aware of people of different nationalities and be more appreciative of our country.

Day 2 (14 March 2019) 
 We started the day with a short trek to the e-farm. We met Farmer Sandy and Farmer Augustine. They introduced and taught us how the farm reuses natural resources to cultivate organic fruits and vegetables and fishes.
