Overseas Trips
1st June 2015

BSPY4 Xi’an, China

During the June holidays, our Year 4 Bicultural Studies Programme scholars flew to Xi’an, China for a 10-day immersion trip.

The main highlight of the immersion trip was a series of 5 lectures conducted in Northwest University. The 5 lectures covered areas such as China’s economy, social development, culture and international relations. Our students had the chance to interact with the undergraduates to learn about their degree courses and career prospects.

On top of attending lectures, our students visited corporations such as Coca Cola to learn the competition and challenges faced by these companies. The students also visited some of Xi’an’s landmarks such as the Terracotta Warriors, Tombs of Hanwudi and Qinshihuang, Waterfall at Yellow River, Xi’an’s Mosque, and so on to understand the history of Xi’an and its surroundings.

Students had the opportunity to visit Yan’an, a Communist stronghold when civil war broke out in China, and visited the former abodes of renowned Communist leaders and the museum showcasing the challenges that the Communists faced during those tumultuous times. They also had the opportunity to watch a musical telling stories of the various sacrifices that the Communists had to make before achieving eventual success.

During the trip, our students paid a visit to Yangguang High School of Xi’an and attended some lessons with their counterparts there. The Chinese students showcased some of their more unique performances, much to the delight of our students.

Our students enjoyed the trip and learnt a lot through the various activities during this immersion.

2015年6月1日至10日,德明政府中学的20位中四双文化奖学金得主远赴中国西安,展开为期10天的浸濡课程。

我校学生这次有幸到西安的西北大学上为期5天的主题讲堂课。这5个主题主要涵盖了中国现代经济、社会发展、文化以及外交的领域。在此间,学生也有机会与西北大学的本科生进行交流,了解该校本科生所报读的本科以及就业前景。

除了到大学学习之外,学生也参观了在中国发展的外资些企业如可口可乐,了解企业文化。学生也参观了西安的一些著名地标,如兵马俑博物馆、黄帝陵、黄河壶口瀑布、回民街、大清真寺等等,了解了西安与周边的发展史。

我们也安排学生到中国革命根据地――延安,参观了革命领袖在枣园的故居以及延安革命纪念馆,也在延安的剧院观赏了《延安保育院》,让同学们体验当年革命分子为革命事业所作出的种种贡献与牺牲。

在浸濡的期间,学生也到西安阳光中学与那里的学生进行了一天的交流,与当地伙伴一同上课,了解了当地学生的学习环境,还观赏了阳光中学学生精心准备的文娱表演,为这次的浸濡画上了美丽的句点。
