Suncheon Maesan Middle School Visit to YISS 2019


From 17 to 21 January 2019, our school hosted a group of 16 students and 4 staff from Suncheon Maesan Middle School (SMMS), including the school’s Vice-Principal, Mr Cho Yong-gyun. This exchange, in its eleventh year running, is part of the school’s Korea Internationalisation Programme to extend our students’ learning beyond the shores of Singapore.

On 17 January, the staff and students from SMMS group visited our school. After a welcome ceremony, the group, together with their YI buddies, embarked on a learning journey to the Sustainable Singapore Gallery at the Marina Barrage. After exploring the interactive stations at the gallery, the students enjoyed a kite-flying session at the Marina Barrage Green Roof.

The next day, the students from SMMS joined their YI buddies to get an experience of classroom learning before learning more about the different ethnic cultures and cultural costumes. The students from SMMS also tried their hands at baking traditional goodies such as pineapple tarts and murukku in a session conducted by our librarian, Mdm Mylene, together with Parent Support Group volunteers Mdm Sapna and Mdm Mani, before attending a workshop to learn more about Arduino programming which is part of YI’s Applied Learning Programme. The students from SMMS capped off an enriching day by joining their buddies to experience Co-Curricular Activities in our school. Our YI students also had the chance to host the students from SMMS for this 5-day visit which was a memorable and fun experience for everyone.

On 21 January, we bid farewell to our friends from SMMS. We look forward to meeting them again in Korea later on this year in May!
