UK Study Trip 2015

中文

From London to the Lakes and Everything in Between

This June saw the NYGH Special Assistance Programme (SAP) Scholars embark on a 14-day study trip to the United Kingdom.  The 44 girls were joined by seven buddies from The Affiliated High School of Peking University (HSPKU).

The itinerary included London, Stratford-upon-Avon and a visit to St Anne’s College, Oxford.  The group were also warmly received by Perse School in Cambridge, where all three schools enjoyed bonding over the quintessentially English game of croquet.

bbcThe visit to the BBC in London also revealed NYGH’s budding broadcasting talents when a few girls were given the opportunity to share their perspectives and personal experience of education during a live broadcast of World Have Your Say on the BBC World Service.

As part of the trip’s focus on experiential learning, the students also spent a few days camping in the Lake District.  This saw the students pitching their own tents, cooking, kayaking and hill walking.  In spite of the somewhat chilly weather, the students came together to share activities, learning and to overcome challenges.

Overall, the trip proved to be a memorable one, for both students and staff and we look forward to further collaboration next year.


2015年英国学习之旅:游走于伦敦和湖区之间

今年六月南洋女子中学校44名中四双文化奖学金学生与7名北京大学附属中学的学伴踏上了为期14天的英国学习之旅。

行程包括伦敦,埃文河畔莎士比亚故居史特拉福和参观牛津大学圣安妮学院。他们也受到剑桥伯斯高校热烈地欢迎,三校同学打了一场传统的英式槌球游戏,大伙儿玩得不亦乐乎!

在伦敦,我们还到英国广播公司参观,南中的小小广播员有了展示才能的机会,她们在英国广播公司面向世界的现场直播节目中,与来自世界各地的学生,讨论她们对于学校课程的看法,她们也分享了个人的学习体验。

此行的重点之一是体验式学习活动,学生在湖区露营数日。她们得自己搭帐篷,做饭,划皮筏艇及登山。尽管天气有些寒冷,但同学们齐心协力,一起学习并克服重重挑战。

总体来说,这次学习之旅是令人难忘的,我们期待着来年进一步的合作。
