In these two days in Fairfield, our boys could really "live" with the local students and have a lot of chances to mingle with them. Studying in their regular classes and playing sports with Fairfield's children had been what our boys were looking forward to! Fairfield's hospitality would definitely needs to be returned...in May the soonest, when they would bring a batch of 30 students to YWPS to experience our way of education. And I'm glad that Mdm Law, Principal of Fairfield Methodist School, officially invited YWPS's students to visit Fairfield next year! I am too looking forward to bringing our boys to learn in Singapore again!
With surprises and amazement, the P.6 Singapore Study Tour has come to a close. On the whole, I'm very happy with and moved by our participants' engagement in the 5 days 4 nights with almost purely English dialogues all the way, be it with their peers, teachers or local people. And also, the concrete learning experiences, including but not limited to, the exchanges in Anglo-Chinese School (Junior), Ms Mary Ann's Workshop, and Fairfield Methodist School, were made use of fully and being highly praised.
Now, I'm looking forward to reading in detail our boys' daily reflections in their tour journal. I'm sure they are having many other unique feelings and observations in this tour. And more and more sharing of this tour, in different ways, will be conducted in school soon so that our learning will become the entire school's learning.
Thank you Singapore for showing us what a beautiful country you are! And thanks to YWPS for offering this unique journey for our boys and us teachers.
