ASEAN HALL [COMPLETE] 2021.09.15
On 15 September, 25 students from Gwangjin Middle School took part in AKC’s School Tour Program. The students participated in the untact program from the comfort of their homes. After being greeted by Lee Kyeong-a, Director of ASEAN Hall and watching “Way to ASEAN-Korea Center” VR video, the students listened attentively to the lecture on ASEAN and international organizations. The students participated in activities such as Golden Bell Quiz and making Philippines Jeepney paper crafts. This time around, ASEAN Officials from the Philippines and Brunei participated in the program to introduce their respective countries. During Alex Mallari Macatuno’s lecture on the Philippines, students had the opportunity to learn the Philippines’ alphabet “Abakada” song. Followed by Siti Maisarah Haji Majid’s lecture on Brunei, the students were introduced to famous tourism sites in Brunei. Afterwards, the students engaged in a Q&A session with the two ASEAN officials to discuss cultural festivals, traditional foods, and pop culture in the Philippines and Brunei. Closing off the program, the students took a group photo with the officials.
The following is a testimonial from a student:
“I became interested in [ASEAN] countries that I was not interested in before, and I want to recommend this program to my friends. I felt closer to ASEAN after participating in the program.”
