After two weeks in operation, the Summer Fun 2010 course 1 concluded on June 18, 2010. A closing ceremony was organized on the same day for as many as 100 students who attended the course from June 7 to 18, 2010.
This special two-week English course was designed for children from 7 to 15 years old. Taking part in the course, students were exposed to a wide variety of activities such as painting, singing, chanting, dancing, storytelling and playing educational games.
These activities enabled students to develop their English language skills in an interactive and, most importantly, fun environment. At the same time, students were given the opportunity to interact with foreign teachers from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds – America, England, Australia, and Scotland. The teachers helped students improve their knowledge and understanding of foreign cultures, values and people of these countries. This year, the Overseas Study Department (OSD) with the assistance of the Kiddy Program will send a group of students to the National University of Singapore for a two- week study tour. In preparation for their study, students spent 24 hours learning communicative English and exploring people, country and cultures of Singapore at SEAMEO RETRAC.
In the wake of the success of the Summer Fun course 1, course 2 will be conducted at SEAMEO RETRAC from July 5 to 16, 2010.
