This trip was in conjunction with Chinese language and cultural diversity understanding and learning. During the trip, students learned some basic Kung Fu techniques with Gold medalist Kung Fu master Mr. Leroy Kwok and instructor Miss Veron Lau. Some students also spoke in Mandarin while buying traditional Chinese New Year goodies in Chinatown.
We are looking forward to seeing students performing a Kung Fu demonstration alongside the famous Singaporean Kung Fu master during the secondary assembly on 9th February.
Here are some of the students’ reflections:
