CIE students participated in the bilateral exchange programme with Temasek and Ngee Ann Polytechnic in Singapore for almost 5 weeks this summer. During their month-long stay, they attended regular classes, conducted a research project, and immersed in workplace observation with partner organisations.
Making the experience more memorable was the time they spent with their Singapore student buddies, who took them around the city to explore its history, culture, cuisine, and people at places like the ArtScience Museum and Little India. In addition, with English being Singapore’s first language, the CIE students were able to practise their conversation skills in a more authentic English speaking environment.
It was evident upon their return that they had a greater sense of multi-cultural awareness and global citizenship.
