Overseas Trips

BSPY5 Beijing, China

The Year 5 Study immersion Programme to Beijing marks the final phase in the “Know-Experience-Study” China framework of the DHS BSP Overseas Study Immersion Programme. This immersion programme was led and orgranised by Head CL 1, Mr Yeong Chan Kong, and ST/CL Mdm An Fengyun and Miss Chew Geok Joo. A total of 20 Year 5 SAP Scholars took part in the programme, which lasted 18 days from 15 November to 2 December 2014.

As the final immersion programme for our 20 SAP scholars over the past 3 years since their enrolment into the Bicultural Studies Programme, great effort has been put into the design of the immersion to ensure effective learning. With strong support from Dr Foo, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed and partnership was formed with Beijing National Day School. This has provided an excellent opportunity for our students to interact with the local students.

In addition, as a direct result of a long-term partnership between DHS and the Foreign Students Admissions Office of Peking University, a total of 7 thematic lectures on China’s Foreign Policies were arranged. The professors from Peking University were deeply impressed with the knowledge of our students on contemporary China.

We were also greeted by DHS alumni who are currently studying in Peking University. Under their kind arrangement, our students were ushered to attend undergraduate lectures with them. It was a unique experience for our BSP scholars to be able to attend students together with the top brains in China in what is undisputedly the top institution of education in China.

Apart from Peking University, we also visited Renmin University in Beijing and Nankai University in Tianjin, both top-ranking universities in China. A topical lecture on the Current Outlook of E-commerce in China was also arranged for our students in Nankai University.

Together with sightseeing to the various sites of cultural and historical interest in Beijing and Tianjin, experiential learning over the past 3 years for our Y5 BSP SAP Scholars culminated to a fruitful end.

2014年11月15日至12月2日,华文部主任杨振光老师,连同安凤云老师和周育如老师,率20名高一双文化课程奖学金得主,前往北京进行为期18日的浸濡学习 。

本次浸濡学习课程乃本届双文化课程奖学金得主自中三加入双文化课程以来,第6次,也是最后一次赴海外进行浸濡学习。此次前来北京,乃我校双文化课程海外浸濡学习框架中“认识中国-体验中国-研究中国”的最后一个环节。在符传丰校长的大力支持与协助之下,我校学生有机会和北京市十一学校的学生交流,举办了双边学生研讨会,并通过合作备忘录的签署,与北京市十一学校搭起了友谊的桥梁。

此次浸濡学习也得到北京大学留学生办公室的大力支持,北大特为学生们安排了7次围绕中国外交的专题课。负笈北大修读本科的德明校友,也抽出宝贵的时间进行接待。他们不但向学弟学妹分享撰写研习论文的心得,更带领他们在北大旁听本科生课程,实实在在地体验了北大学子的学习生活。

除了北京大学之外,学校也安排同学们参观了人民大学和天津南开大学。学生们还在南开大学上了一堂“中国当代电子商务发展”的专题课,获益匪浅。

纵观本次浸濡学习,同学们不但上课、搜集研习资料、参观文化景点,更重要的是为自己三年来的浸濡生活划下了圆满的句号。继之前的湖南、台湾、美国以及上海的浸濡学习之后,同学们又来到中国首都北京学习,对当代中国有了更全面深入的了解和观感,成为具有全球视野、精通东西方文化的德明人。
