Cross-cultural Training Programme at the Singapore Sports School 2015

After the successful completion of the Singapore Exchange Program held in late March 2015, all the members in our school's senior management team were impressed with the vision of the Singapore Sports School. When they returned from Singapore, they planned to organize a training programme for those student athletes with good performance in swimming and fencing during the Summer Holiday.

Our P.E. teachers, Mr. Man Kin Ping and Ms. Ho Yu Chai, led 10 swimmers and 8 fencers to spend a week training with students at the Singapore Sports School from 24th to 30th Aug 2015. The Programme aimed to provide a valuable opportunity for our student athletes to widen their perspectives and deepen their understanding of training life of their Singaporean counterparts. They also learnt more about local culture and differing customs in this trip.

The modern accommodations and facilities provided our students with a splendid learning environment. With the professional coaches and equipment in the campus, students were guided by local coaches in their everyday training and had the chances to put the first-class equipment to the test. The valuable experience received through different visits and learning activities in Singapore enabled our student athletes to expand their social circles, raise their cultural awareness and develop better self-management skills and self-discipline.
