2019 BSP Y5 Immersion to Shanghai, China

From 2 June to 13 June 2019, three teachers and fourteen students under the Bicultural Studies Programme (BSP) embarked on an immersion trip to Shanghai to uncover modern China.

The highlight of the trip was attending lectures at Fudan University where professors and lecturers shared their wealth of knowledge about modern China, enlightening the students with their unique insights and views on different issues. The Singaporean students pursuing their studies in Fudan University also shared their personal experiences, which was definitely helpful for students who are considering to further their studies in China.

Other than Fudan, students got to visit many other tourist sites and also interact with Shanghai students from Qibao High School and Jiuqian Volunteer Centre. Students got to witness advanced technology capabilities in Shanghai, from the use of Virtual Reality in the Shanghai Tower to technology experts gathered in Changyang Valley to in-built astronomical telescope in Qibao High School. Qibao High School warmly welcomed us and even made personalised name stamps that were done by their students with a 3D printer. There were also simulations for flying planes and students could test their model planes in the compound. Students also got to see real dinosaur eggs. The specialised equipment that Qibao High School left Dunmanians in awe.

Apart from attending lessons, students also explored landmark tourist spots like Cheng Huang Temple, Tianzifang, Yuyuan Garden, Suzhou Museum, Lingering Garden, the Bund, Tongli Ancient Town, LuXun Park, M50 Creative Park, Shanghai Jewish Refugees Museum and Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Centre. Students were even able to appreciate a drama play titled “Miracles of the Namiya General Store” and visited enterprises like Yihai Kerry and Lvmama.com, where they got a glimpse of business operations. Students also had a memorable visit to Sun Island Taisheng Farm where students got to harvest fruits and vegetables which they ate at a subsequent hotpot lunch.

This immersion programme has allowed students to both marvel at the rapid advancement of Shanghai as well as to experience its rich cultural atmosphere.
