In September 2018, staff and students from Hong Kong’s Wing Kwong College travelled to Sydney to be part of a student exchange program. Ten students and two staff, including the Principal, made the trip to Australia.
Wing Kwong College students had a taste of Australian classrooms working alongside students from Redeemer Baptist School from years 7-10. This included a different education system, new teaching and learning styles as well as another school culture. Here, they gained an invaluable experience participating in a normal week at school. As a result, many of the students were able to develop friendships during their time together.
During their time at school, the students performed a culturally-significant musical item in the School assembly that was enjoyed by all.
As well as education, students from the College attended a number of significant places. This included the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Jenolan Caves, Featherdale Wildlife Park and the Blue Mountains to name a few. Students from Redeemer Baptist School accompanied the them on many of these trips which provided the group with unique outdoor learning experiences.
