Visit by Staff and Pupils from SK Convent Green Lane ΓÇô Penang
On 27 and 28 August 2015, Pei Chun played host to 25 girls and 5 staff from the SK Convent Green Lane, Penang. This is part of the schoolΓÇÖs cultural exchange programme which aims to develop global awareness and cross-cultural skills in our pupils. Lively exchanges took place between the staff and pupils from both schools.
As sports is one of the fastest ways to foster friendships, we arranged for a friendly match and a training session with some of our volleyball players from P4 and P5. To engage our visitors in the classroom learning experience, they also sat through an English lesson with our pupils. Staff from the ICT Department also introduced our visitors to our interactive learning platform on the mconline portal.
The visit ended on a high note with their team leader presenting tokens of appreciation to our Vice-Principal. Although it was a short visit, it was an enriching learning experience for our staff and pupils. Our staff gained greater insights on the school system in Penang, enabling them to make comparisons between the Singapore and the Malaysian education systems. Our student representatives also learnt the skills to be good hosts to the visitors from Penang.
