Exchange Programme in Canada
Six Grade 8 and 9 students took part in an outward exchange programme at Canada’s Peoples Christian Academy from April 10 to 20, 2019. In addition to attending day-time classes, our students enjoyed various local school experiences there such as visiting Toronto Zoo, joining the Maple Leafs & Raptors Day and Battle of the Books etc. The days in the sister school and with the host families gave students a deeper understanding of the Canadian culture and exposure to the native English-speaking environment.
Overseas exchange programmes enhance students’ independency and self-confidence, as well as helping make new friends. It is certainly an eye-opening experience for them to explore different cultures and strengthen their language and communication skills.
