Between 16 July and 30 July, a group of students from S1 to S3 had a fruitful immersion programme in Auckland.
In the classroom, our students learned a lot from both the teaching of those experienced teachers and the interactions with their classmates from Korea.In addition, the students went on excursions to a wide variety of scenic spots, such as museums, country parks, bays and beaches.
The students also enjoyed the homestay experience. As it got dark early at night in Auckland, the students braved the chilly night by filling the stomach with their host parents and having a lot of cultural exchanges through their conversations. On top of the English vocabulary that the students learned, they felt joy, care and love.
The highlight of the programme is surely the experience of new customs and cultures. For example, the students learned about the Maori, the indigenous Polynesian people of New Zealand, and their war dance, the haka. Most of them also had a great church experience. They attended a Christian fellowship on Friday and went to church on Sunday.
All in all, the programme is certainly one that they will remember for a long, long time.
