A Two-Week Visit Forges New Friendships Between the Students from Singapore and Beijing

On 25 March 2014, 11 young ladies from The Affiliated High School of Peking University visited Nanyang Girls’ High School.  They were warmly received by their buddies, who were all Secondary 3 students from Nanyang Girls’ High School.

In the two weeks of immersion, the students from Beijing attended lessons with their buddies and took part in all their school activities, including class discussions and Q&A sessions. The students also visited places of attractions in Singapore such as the zoo, Sentosa and Gardens by the Bay together, and exchanged notes on the cultures and practices of both countries.  However, the main highlight of the programme was a two-day camp at Pulau Ubin, home to Singapore’s last villages (kampongs).  The girls also got to paddle in pairs as they kayaked along the coast and entered the mangroves of Pulau Ubin.  The experience of enjoying the quiet life in Pulau Ubin was a rare opportunity even for the locals.

In the two weeks of interaction, the girls shared great fun together; they asked each other anything they wanted to know about each other, faced challenges together as partners and played hard together as pals.  This is how friendships that last are built.


越洋友谊,地久天长

2014年3月25日,阳光明媚的一天,校园的一角,十一位身着南洋校服的女生在与她们的同伴畅谈着各种话题。平常的一天,因一群活泼可爱的学生的到来,中三双文化奖学金学生活跃起来了。北京大学附属中学十一名可爱的女生就这样开始了为期两周的交流活动。

风趣幽默,活泼开朗的北京女孩给每个人留下了深刻印象。虽然新加坡的教学与中国的教学不同,课程内容也极具挑战性,但北大附中的女生脸上绽放出的自信从容的微笑令每名同学钦佩不已。课堂上,不时也有老师对她们进行小小的提问,北大附中的学生们,非但没有胆怯,还勇敢的接受了老师的挑战,表达她们的看法。

在南中体验式学习的老师带领下,他们去了乌敏岛参与两天一夜的体验式学习,领略了划独木舟的不易,也见证了热带雨林的美丽与沼泽生态的奇特。

周末,和伙伴们一起去动物园、圣淘沙及滨海花园等地游玩,她们对新加坡有较深入的了解。在学习中,相信她们更了解南中人的学习方法和思考模式。

课间休息,她们用地道的北京话为同学们介绍着她们的家乡。提到新加坡的风土人情时,她们说很喜欢新加坡的环境和新加坡人的热情好客。只是短短几天,北大附中的学生已与南中同学们打成一片,欢声笑语流露出的是真挚深厚的越洋友情。

两周的日子如此短暂,难忘这越洋友情与两周以来的点点滴滴。北大附中的学生用微笑感染着南中人,用真心换来了友谊。当真心与微笑相遇,友谊之花必然绽放。这份深厚的越洋友情,必会地久天长!
