Sponsored Study Field Trip for Students with Excellent Academic Performance to Singapore
SEAMEO RETRAC in collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education
and Training sponsored a group of primary school students to an exchange program
in Singapore from April 09 to 13, 2012.
The sponsorship aimed at needy students from disadvantaged areas of Ho Chi Minh
City who have good commands of English, possess excellent academic performance
and are actively involved in schools’ activities. The study field trip included
school exchange at Teck Ghee Primary School and cultural activities. During the
two-day immersion at Teck Ghee Primary School, the Vietnamese students had an
opportunity to make friends with Singaporeans, attended their classes and did
some cultural exchange activities. Also, the group had a chance to visit most
of the popular places of interest in Singapore such as: Merlion Park, Marina Barrage,
Science Center, Universal Studios and so on.
