Strengthening Bonds with Shanghai Beihong Senior High School - A Memorable Trip

Our recent 5-day trip to Shanghai, from 23 to 27 April 2024, was a remarkable experience for our student group. Led by Vice-Principal Mr. Leung and accompanied by teachers Mr. Fung and Mr. Lee, we embarked on this journey with a clear purpose: to further strengthen the existing sister-school bond with Shanghai Beihong Senior High School.

During our stay, our students had the privilege of immersing themselves in the vibrant city of Shanghai. They attended regular classes at Beihong Senior High, gaining insights into their educational system and fostering cross-cultural connections. The enriching cultural exchange activities allowed our students to appreciate the diversity and dynamism of Shanghai’s local culture.

A highlight of the trip was the opportunity to visit the families of the Beihong student ambassadors. These personal interactions provided a unique window into daily life, traditions, and values. Our students returned home with new perspectives, a deeper appreciation for a culture different than theirs, and memories that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impact on their lives.

As we continue to nurture this valuable partnership, we look forward to more collaborative endeavors that bridge the gap between our schools and foster lifelong friendships.

Inner Mongolia Culture and Stargazing Study Tour

From 27 March to 3 April 2024, 25 of our Form 4 and Form 5 boys embarked on an unforgettable adventure to Beijing and Inner Mongolia, exploring the rich cultural heritage and breathtaking landscapes of mainland China.

This immersive study tour was carefully designed to deepen their understanding and appreciation of China's beauty, culture, and history. Our students engaged in a diverse range of activities, including:

  • Mongolian cultural experiences, such as a vibrant bonfire party
  • Visits to renowned Chinese enterprises, like Yili Dairy, to learn about innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Explorations of iconic cultural and historical sites, including Tiananmen Square, the majestic Great Wall at Badaling, Xiangshawan, and the serene Dazhao Temple

Through this enriching experience, we hope our students gained a deeper understanding of China's social development, cultural diversity, and national identity. This tour not only broadened their horizons but also ignited a sense of pride and connection to their heritage.
