Up the Straits to Melaka

Up the Straits to Melaka

Last month, our Secondary 2 Students went on a trip to the historically and culturally rich city of Melaka. Part of our Project One initiative, the trip aimed to develop students holistically in the aesthetic, physical, socio-emotional, moral and cognitive areas.

The highlight of the trip was the visit to a traditional Malay Kampung where students got to immerse themselves in traditional folkways, such as the traditional Malay dance and Batik painting. Many students even got to try Peranakan cuisine for the first time. Not only that, they also visited the Agriculture farm and man-made swiftlet cave where they had the opportunity to witness organic farming and bird nest cultivation.

All in all, students learned to appreciate cultural, economic and social diversity, as well as the norms and differences of others. The trip was truly one that broadened the mind!
