The uniqueness of YTSS Curriculum is enhanced with cross cultural experiences where YTzens are given the opportunity for learning not just beyond the classroom but also beyond the local context.
In 2015, 3 groups of students went for the overseas fieldtrips ( Melbourne, Perth and Beijing). While the Melbourne trip has an aesthetic focus, the group that went for the Perth Fieldtrip had an adventure component where they did rock climbing and abseiling. Students who went for the Beijing trip had an enriching cultural programme with one of our twinning schools, Beijing Shangdi Experimental Middle School.
Through these trips, students have an awareness of the different schools’ programmes through a wide spectrum of exchange activities for the teachers and students such as interaction sessions and cultural immersion sessions. Overall, these fieldtrips have allowed students to gain meaningful experiences, to embrace and appreciate the diversity around them.
