Overseas Trips

BSPY5 Shanghai, China

During the June Holidays, our Year 5 Bicultural Studies Programme Scholars flew to Shanghai for a 18-day Study Immersion Programme at Fudan University.

Our BSP Scholars attended a series of lectures in Fudan University, which covered themes including political milestones in the development of post-reform Shanghai and China. They also engaged in intellectual discussions with the professors and lecturers, much like any undergraduate student in Fudan.

Our scholars also visited Jiaotong University of Shanghai, China, where they were introduced to various technological innovations such as 3D-printing. A lecture on the socio-political outlook of contemporary China was also organized for our students.

The BSP Scholars also visited a number of Multi-National Corporations based in Shanghai, e.g. the Shanghai Volkswagen Automotive Co. Ltd, Shanghai Baosteel Group Corporation as well Singapore’s very own BreadTalk.

The Shanghai Oriental Pearl Tower, which towers 276 metres, left a very deep impression in our students. They were awed by the mesmerizing scenery from the tower overlooking the Pudong Area and the Bund. In short, Shanghai features an old-world charm integrated in one of the most modern cityscapes of the world.

At the end of the trip, our Principal, Dr. Foo Suan Fong, led a visit to Jinshan High School of Shanghai. Students and teachers of Jinshan greeted the BSP delegation with a warm welcome, following which students from both schools engaged in thematic discussions that focused on the education systems of Singapore and China.

They say time passes the fastest when one is the happiest. Such words are indeed true for the time spent at Shanghai.

2014年6月1日至18日,德明政府中学的17名高一双文化奖学金得主远赴中国上海,展开了为期18天的浸濡课程。

浸濡课程的开端包括了在复旦大学为期一周的专题课程。专题课程跨越不同主题,范围广泛。同学们也能够与教授进行交流,展开讨论并发表意见,获益匪浅。其次,同学们也到上海交通大学进行为时一日的学习之旅。同学们在上海交大不只上了专题课程,还参观了交大风光明媚的校园,更有幸到交大的生物转基因科普教育基地进行考察。

除了到大学学习以外,同学们也有机会参观上海大众汽车有限公司、上海宝钢集团公司、以及新加坡企业面包物语在中国的分公司。通过参观,同学们对这些企业的运营有了初步的了解。当然,浸濡课程也少不了到上海著名地标,如快速发展的浦东新区、具有情调的外滩以及仍旧保留旧上海建筑风格的新天地。同学们还登上了曾是世界第一高塔的东方明珠塔,鸟瞰浦东新区的宜人风景。

在最后一天的行程中,在符传丰校长的率领下,同学们访问了上海金山中学,并获得盛情招待,令大家宾至如归、惊喜连连。在参观了美丽宽敞的金山中学校园之后,同学们也为彼此献上了表演节目。金山中学也为这次访问组织了交流论坛,两校在论坛上分享了关于双文化课程以及两国教育系统的一些想法。时光匆匆,金山中学的访问的结束,也为这次的上海之行画下了完美的句点。
