OVERSEAS LEARNING JOURNEYS
History and Cultural Immersion Programme to Beijing
The four-day History and Cultural Immersion Programme to Beijing, China is organised by the Humanities Department for Secondary 3 and 4 students. Students visit the Great Wall of China, the Anti-Japanese Museum and the National Museum of Beijing to deepen their understanding of historical events and issues which are part of the History curriculum. This also provides the opportunity for experiential learning, where students relate what they have learnt in the classroom to a real-life environment. Besides experiencing the landscape, place and people first-hand, Kent Ridgeans also volunteer at a school for the children of migrant workers.
This immersion programme has helped students to acquire 21st century skills such as critical thinking and having global awareness. Students also deepen their social and emotional learning as they learn to cultivate empathy during their interaction with the migrant children.
