H - Hospitality. The two schools we started our school experience with (Anglo-Chinese School Junior and Fairfield Methodist Primary School) exercised a very high level of hospitality to host us. Our boys enjoyed the opportunity mingling with the Singaporean children and learned from a different curriculum in a friendly way. Besides, our meals were offered by the two brilliant schools freely. No wonder all of our boys had very positive feedback today on their school experiences.
A - Ambassador Programmes. Both schools have adopted Student Ambassador Programmes similar to what we do. Today Anglo-Chinese School offered a 2-ambassador-to-1-visitor scheme to maximize interactions while Fairfield's ambassadors were well equipped with scripts, mics and uniforms, and importantly, they had girls to train up our boys' social manners!
P - Principal's Surprise. Our School Headmistress Mrs Lam gave our P.6 boys a warm surprise as she appeared during our school experience in Fairfield Methodist. She even gave a speech on friendship and love to the Singaporean students at the morning assembly with her signature "magic trick" in the end.
P - Perfect Weather. Should we feel bad that the weather forecast was not accurate? As can be seen from our photos, the sun was smiling all the way today to enhance our outdoor experience. Our sweat of happiness has made the experience even more memorable!
Y - "Yes!" This is the voice in unison when the tour guide offered a shopping opportunity to us in the end of the day. After a packed learning programme and a visit to the interesting Little India and Arab Street areas, we were brought to a nearby supermarket to let some of our boys' cash contribute to the Singapore economy! Guess what the children bought?
More fun should happen tomorrow for sure. Hope you've all had a Happy Valentines Day as we do!
