ASEAN HALL [COMPLETE] 2021.10.15
On 15 October, 50 students from Samsung High School attended the ASEAN-Korea Centre’s ASEAN School Tour program. Students who are enrolled in a Singapore-Korea exchange program as a part of their creative extracurricular activity participated in the online ASEAN School Tour program to learn more about Singapore.
The program began with welcoming remarks and introduction on ASEAN and the ASEAN-Korea Centre by Lee Kyeong-a, Director of ASEAH Hall. Afterwards, Adrian Li, Deputy Chief of Mission from the Embassy of the Republic of Singapore in Korea, was invited to the program to give an in-depth lecture on Singapore and discussed various relevant topics on Singapore’s education, economy and current COVID-19 situation with the students.
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 learned about the meaning of ASEAN, and it was nice to have an opportunity to get a glimpse of Singapore’s culture, history and lifestyle. I also want to experience working at the AKC and living in an ASEAN country.”
