Pupils' reflections

  1. 1. Pupils’ Reflection Cultural Immersion Programme at Shanghai World Expo 2010 22th May – 29th May
  2. 2. <ul><li>The trip to Shanghai was exciting, interesting and fun. Shanghai is a very beautiful place. It looks similar to Singapore but Shanghai is bigger and colder. I went to the Science and Technology Centre. At the Oriental Pearl Tower, the elevator brought us to the 164 th floor in just 15s. On the third day, we went to the World Expo which was very big and had many beautiful pavilions. I enjoyed the fun bridges in Oriental Land too! </li></ul><ul><li>Shivaram, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The trip to Shanghai was very enriching. It taught me care, teamwork ,videography, discipline, photography and most importantly, friendship. I met two new friends in China, one of them is from Wuxi and the other from Shanghai. I like the visit to the World Expo 2010 as it helped me know more about other countries. The hotels were very nice. Oriental Land was also very interesting. There was a maze, a giant chess set, an obstacle course and a life-sized aircraft carrier. I wished I can go back to Shanghai again. </li></ul><ul><li>Lucas Chew, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>I learned a lot at Shanghai World Expo. I learned how to work as a team, interact with people and make new friends. I like getting “VIP” access to get into some pavilions. I wished I could have this experience again with the same group of friends and teachers! </li></ul><ul><li>Harsh, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>I feel very excited when I knew I was going to the Immersion Programme. It was my first time on the airplane and the trip was wonderful! In Shanghai, it was heavenly! The Expo was crazily fun. It was so big that one needs 1 month to visit all pavilions. It was an unforgettable trip and it will be in my heart forever. I wish we could go to Shanghai again. </li></ul><ul><li>Leck Yong Chee, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>The Australia pavilion is a very interesting pavilion as when you looked out, it looked like the world is orange in colour. The China pavilion showed its rich history. The Singapore pavilion showed how wonderful our nature is. The Italy pavilion showcased their fashion. Last of all, the Siemen pavilion showed a lot of the future technologies. I feel that the learning journey is very meaningful and enriching. I enjoyed being a reporter at the World Expo as it built up my confidence. </li></ul><ul><li>Aloysius Koh, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>I like the Shanghai trip very much, especially the Shanghai Expo. The best ones are the Singapore and China pavilion. I like the sky garden in the Singapore pavilion and I like the ride in China pavilion. I also went to the Egypt, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Russia and Algeria Pavilions. I also had the chance to collaborate with some of the pupils in Shanghai and Wuxi. I had fun meeting them and exchanging gifts. </li></ul><ul><li>Jermayne Yeo Chze Min, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The Shanghai trip has taught me many things, such as understanding the life of other people in other countries. I never knew the World Expo would be so big. It was extremely exciting! Every pavilion has different exhibits and activities in them. The trip was so thrilling and we learned a lot. </li></ul><ul><li>Dominique Chan, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  9. 9. <ul><li>I enjoyed the Shanghai trip very much, especially the World Expo. I learnt to take care of our friends, work with them and communicate with them. I found out more about some countries such as Egypt, China and Australia. I also made friends with students in Shanghai and Wuxi. I feel very lucky to be friends with them. </li></ul><ul><li>Phua Suet Cheng, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>I learnt more about the culture of other countries. I like the Singapore Pavilion where we learned how to cooperate. There was a trampoline exercise and we were supposed to jump together to reveal all the images of Singapore. The Denmark pavilion has the Little Mermaid statue. It even explained how it was shipped to Shanghai. The benches are very interesting as it has different shapes! I know this experience will not fade but if it really does, I still have my souvenirs to remind me! </li></ul><ul><li>Georgia Chua, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>I learnt that it is important to work together as a team. We need to stand together in order to succeed. When there is a problem, do not panic, but think of a solution. My favourite pavilion is the Denmark pavilion. It is like a spiral staircase without steps. The Singapore Pavilion has a sky garden which has a special orchid hybrid especially created for World Expo. </li></ul><ul><li>Priscilla Yip Hui Bing, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>During the Shanghai trip, I learnt to be responsible of my belongings and to be independent. I also learned to communicate with the Wuxi and Shanghai pupils there. It was fun to communicate and chat with them about their school or the interests we have in common. Now I have more friends from other countries and I can write to them or email them. The trip has also given me the opportunity to go overseas without my parents. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Amanda Ng Jing Qing, Teamwork 1 </li></ul></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>During the Shanghai trip, I learnt that I need to be responsible of my own belongings so that I will not lose them. I also learnt to interact and communicate properly and nicely with others. I learnt to be courageous and brave too. I must not give up when I come across difficulties. I also learnt the importance of staying close to my team when it got too crowded in the Expo so that I would not get lost. </li></ul><ul><li>Koh Hui Juan, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>I enjoyed the Shanghai trip, especially the Expo. I learnt that we should not communicate rudely with other friends. I liked the hotels as the beds were very comfortable. </li></ul><ul><li>Chan Chee Yin, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
  15. 15. <ul><li>During the trip to Shanghai, I learnt that the people in China use Chinese language frequently, unlike Singaporeans. I also learnt how to interact well with my buddies and room-mate. </li></ul><ul><li>Keith Png Boon Kiat, Teamwork 1 </li></ul>
