Hong Kong-Melbourne-Foshan Sister-school Exchange Program 2013

Melbourne Study Tour plk logoprimces hill


The study tour to Melbourne, Australia, was held on 26 October to 4 November 2013. This was our sixth study tour of the school to visit Melbourne and our sister school, Princes Hill Primary School (PHPS). Twelve students (6 P.6 students and 6 P.5 students) were chosen to be the school representatives of the tour. Principal Chan and 2 teachers led the team for the visit.

From the overseas exchange program, we wish to expand students' horizons and enhance 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 program helps to enrich the pedagogies and competence levels. Thus, this is a golden opportunity for our students and teachers to learn and develop.
