Secondary 2 Cultural Immersion Learning Journey 2018

About the Programme

The Secondary 2 Cultural Immersion Learning Journey is an annual programme which Admirals look forward to, and it is a cornerstone of the school's Student Development Programme. This involves two separate trips: One to Malacca and the other local.

Secondary 2 Admirals embarked on the trip to Malacca in early February. The trip was filled with many new experiences which heightened the awareness, and deepened students' knowledge of social cohesion! Admirals explored heritage trails to understand and appreciate the social, economic and political influence which the state had experienced over the years. They were immersed in the local culture through a visit to Kampung Sarang Buaya, and had opportunities to interact with local students at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Bukit Baru and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Ayer Molek.

Fellow Admirals who participated in the local programme embarked on heritage trails to Fort Canning to appreciate the history, and to the Peranakan Museum to appreciate how its heritage contributed to Singapore's identity. A trip to Bollywood Veggies Farm and Hay Diaries also gave students a glimpse of country life.
