A Visit of Old Friends Coming from Hwa Chong Institution
The delegation of Hwa Chong Institution came to our school, Wenchang Middle School at 3:00 p.m. on November 29th. Hwa Chong Institution, which is one of the top secondary schools in Singapore, uses Chinese as a teaching language because of its school background and tradition. Meanwhile, as one of the top 100 schools in China, our school has built a deep relationship with Hwa Chong Institution.
Hwa Chong Institution will visit three cities in China this time: Qionghai, Wenchang and Xiamen. Their aim to Xiamen is to commemorate the founder of their school, Chen jiageng. As the second stop, Wenchang Middle School is the main spot of Wenchang city.
For basically introducing our school to their students, we first played videos about the 110th anniversary of Wenchang Middle School in the afternoon. The delegation expressed that they were amazed by the wonderful anniversary activities, which provided them with new ideas for their coming anniversary.
After that, the members in the English club showed the students from Hwa Chong Institution around the school for more than two hours. Students from two schools were divided casually into groups. Their small groups could be seen everywhere such as teaching building, indoor arena, reading room and so on. Besides the heated discussion, they even spontaneously held a taekwondo match along with many of them taking pictures to record the moment, the place and themselves. That’s how young men’ s friendship is built and works!
All good things come to an end, and so did us. The delegation was heading for next place at 7:00 p.m. Teachers shook hands to express thanks with respect. However, students were reluctant to say goodbye. Through this visit, our school deepened the relationship with Hwa Chong Institution. And both sides of us are looking forward to further communication.
