UK Study Trip 2015: 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.


The 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.


















 Beijing-Singapore Exchange Programme



22 students – 17 girls and 5 boys - from The Affiliated High School of Peking University visited Singapore in March 2015.  Their learning journey included an exchange programme with Nanyang Girls’ High School (NYGH) and School of Science and Technology, Singapore (SST).


Every year, NYGH looks forward to receiving students from The Affiliated High School of Peking University. The highlights of the visit include class immersion programme and joint experiential learning activities, bringing the students from both schools closer together.


This year, the Beijing-Singapore exchange programme includes an exchange segment with SST for the boys.  A Future School with a new campus that has impressive infrastructure, SST provides a very conducive environment for developing 21st century competencies. Yet, what left the deepest impression was the warmth of the students and the school’s focus on developing all-round talents who embrace life-long learning, innovation, leadership, teamwork and active citizenship.


Other activities that the students from Beijing and Singapore had together include visiting Gardens by the Bay, Sentosa and Little India.


The three schools look forward to more opportunities for the students from Beijing and Singapore to work and play together.
