Melbourne Study Tour   plkphps

Our second visit to Princes Hill Primary School (25 April– 4 May 2009)

Introduction

The study tour to Melbourne, Australia, was held on 26 April to 5 May in 2009. This was the second study tour of the school to visit Melbourne and our sister school, Princes Hill Primary School (PHPS). Twelve students (2 P.6 students, 5 P.5 students and 5 P.4 students) were chosen to be the school representatives of the tour. Principal Chan and 3 teachers led the team for the visit.

From the overseas exchange program, we wish to expands students' horizons and enhances their competitiveness so that they can learn to "think globally, act locally". The authentic and practical environment creates language needs for students to use English to communicate actively on a daily basis, result in improvement in English. For teachers, the programs helps to enrich the pedagogies and competence levels. Thus, this is a golden opportunities for our students and teachers to learn and develop.
