Yunan Immersion Group Visit 2013
For this year's School Twinning Programme, 20 pupils and 6 teachers from the Primary School Attached to Yunnan Normal University visited our school from 17 to 19 Jul 2013.
With the emphasis on developing 21st Century Competencies (21CC) in our pupils and the recognition that schools' Internationalisation efforts can strongly support the Desired Outcomes of Education, it is hoped that the twinning programme would benefit our pupils and teachers in ways more than one.
The artpiece in the photo entitled "Hand-in-Hand (心心相印)" is the twinning art creation done by Yunnan pupils and their buddies during their stay with us, with the use of palm prints. They also designed bookmarks using their fingerprints, as gifts to each other.
The rest of the pictures depict the interaction and activities during their stay with us.
Day 2 :
Besides joining the buddies for lessons, Yunnan pupils also attended a Racial Harmony Fun Crafts workshop, conductly jointly by our teachers and Parent Volunteers. They learnt about how Singapore's RH Day came about, and had hands-on experience with Garland-making and Ketupat weaving.
On the other hand, one of the Yunnan teachers, Ms Liu, delivered a highly engaging and interesting Chinese lesson for our P3CL1 pupils.
Day 3 :
The Yunnan pupils gave their best during the RH-cum-Farewell Concert programme as they see it as a thank-you gift to us.
They joined in some of the RH recess activities and also toured our school's art gallery.
School Twinning Programme: Immersion-cum-Cultural Exchange
Lianhua Primary School has established an overseas partnership with our twinning school, The Primary School Attached to Yunnan Normal University (YNSDFX), since 2006 as part of our efforts to develop in our pupils the 21CC of global awareness and cross-cultural skills and sensitivities and to deepen their commitment and rootedness to Singapore.
