ASEAN-Korea Centre Offers Its First Online School Tour With Sung Nam High School Delegates

On 2 September, 2020, keeping pace with the age of “New Normal,” the ASEAN-Korea Centre offered its first online School Tour program with 25 delegates from Sung Nam High School English Camp.


The online School Tour program began with the “Way to the ASEAN-Korea Centre,” virtual reality video, prepared specially for those students who were not able to visit the ASEAN Hall in-person. Ms. Lee Kyeong-a, Director of ASEAN Hall, welcomed the students who were assumed to be virtually sitting at the ASEAN Hall. Then for a brief introduction of ASEAN, the ‘ASEAN, We Are Friends’ video was played.


The lecture session consisted of two lectures on ASEAN and ASEAN-Korea Centre's roles by Ms. Lee Kyeong-a, and on Understanding Viet Nam by Mr. Phan The Thang, Deputy Head of Information and Data Unit.


Though online, the interactive activities of the ASEAN Quiz and the ASEAN Talk with ASEAN officials were very lively. ASEAN Talk was participated by Mr. Thang as well as Ms. Khaing Mee Mee Htun, Head of Culture and Tourism Unit who joined online. Students and the ASEAN officials had active and meaningful discussions.


Lastly, crafting session was left to the students who will, at their home, make the ‘Viet Nam Style Coffee Shop Crafting’ that we have sent to them in advance. With taking group screen shots, the first online School Tour Program was concluded.
