October School Tour Programs with Banghwa, Moontae, and Donbaek Middle Schools

The ASEAN-Korea Centre runs the ASEAN School Tour Program throughout the year in order to raise awareness and understanding of ASEAN. Under the COVID 19 situation, the AKC continues to provide online programs, which has opened the accessibility for regionally distant schools to participate in the program, also allowing for engagement with wider groups of students.


The ASEAN-Korea Centre conducted School Tour Programs for 370 students in the month of October (7th, 14th, 25th, 27th) with Seoul Banghwa Middle School, Mokpo Moontae Middle School, and Yongin Dongbaek Middle Schools. Students enjoyed learning about ASEAN, International Organizations, and ASEAN-Korea Centre through special lectures, Golden Bell Quiz and various cultural activities. Additionally, ASEAN Officials from the Philippines, Laos, Malaysia and Brunei took rounds participating in the Programs to introduce their respective countries and answer students’ questions during Q&A discussions sessions.


Lastly, crafting session was left to the students to make the Singapore China house paper crafts that had been sent in advance. With taking group photos, the online School Tour Program was concluded.


The following is a testimonial from a student:


“I developed a more positive view of ASEAN and a better understanding of ASEAN. Thank you for making it easy to learn about ASEAN which I had not been familiar with before.”
