Overseas Immersion Programme

Every year, our school organizes an overseas school immersion programme to our partner schools, Shengpu Experimental Primary School and Chefang Experimental Primary School in Suzhou Industrial Park, China.

Participants of the programme will have the opportunity to experience school life in a different cultural setting, make new friends of another nationality and learn alongside their peers in Suzhou primary schools. The application for the immersion programme is open to all Primary 5 students.

understanding of Chinese Language and its culture.
