SEAMEO RETRAC in collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training sponsored a group of primary school students to an exchange program in Singapore from April 09 to 13, 2012.
The sponsorship aimed at needy students from disadvantaged areas of Ho Chi Minh City who have good commands of English, possess excellent academic performance and are actively involved in schools’ activities. The study field trip included school exchange at Teck Ghee Primary School and cultural activities. During the two-day immersion at Teck Ghee Primary School, the Vietnamese students had an opportunity to make friends with Singaporeans, attended their classes and did some cultural exchange activities. Also, the group had a chance to visit most of the popular places of interest in Singapore such as: Merlion Park, Marina Barrage, Science Center, Universal Studios and so on.
