nchsglobal


Today,is the last day of construction work.We see our finished products and are really proud of it.Painted library and toilet and the new drainage system.We somehow felt that all our hard work has been paid off and the whole project is a successful one.Today,we held a carnival for the children.We organised games for them to participate in. The only purpose of this carnival is to let the children enjoy themselves.One memorable moment for me was when i gave away stationaries to the children.I still remember clearly how the children reached both of their hands out to receive the gifts.Their face all written with gratitude.We feel happy and satisfied too.The only purpose for our team to come to cambodia is to help the children lead better lives.We did it at the end of the day.



NCHS Science Exchange Programme at Kyoto, Japan Day 4

In the early morning of Daishin-In temple, we woke up to sleepy yet excited hearts and mindsets, we could not wait to go to Rakuhoku High School to attend the exhilarating activities that were awaiting us. We had a traditional Japanese breakfast, served with miso soup and simple vegetarian dishes that were delicious and many people asked for seconds as always. After our breakfast, we left for Rakuhoku High School. The journey took us 1 hour to reach. Once arriving at this grand school which produced 2 Nobel prize winners, we proceeded to the meeting room where we were soon brought to classrooms where we were greeted by an overwhelming crowd of excited students. 1 NCHS student was grouped with 8 Rakuhoku students. They were extremely friendly and warm and we felt at home as we were treated so well. We made many new friends and throughout the bonding games and activities that were conducted, we bonded with them and connected with them through social media.

After the school visit ended, we went to Kyoto University with the 3 schools; Sagano, Momoyama and Rakuhoku High School. We learnt about the international civil engineering course offered and explored the design labs where replicas of real life civil projects were made, and we also visited a hydraulics lab. The university visit was enriching and fun. With that, the day ended.

After checking out of the Daishin-in Temple, we eagerly headed to Sagano High School again to attend lessons. We then attended the Traditional Math Lesson, Wanshu. It was an enriching experience with us learning things we would never have learnt in Singapore, such as Mamako Date, a mind-boggling puzzle that took many of us to solve. After that, we headed to the computer lab to have cultural exchanges with the first-years. For the first activity, we had to create a tower using spaghetti, strings and tape, which had to hold a marshmallow on top of it, which proved to be no easy task. Next, we proceeded to interact with the Japanese using questions we have prepared beforehand, which we shared with each other about our different traditions and cultures. Following that, there was a next group of Japanese students that came in, which we conducted another activity, which was to build a catapult using certain materials provided. Next, we carried out the same activity as the group before, which we had an equally great time.
Then, after lunch, we headed to Arashiyama to carry out a series of activities with students from Sagano High School. We were assigned to groups with at least two or three Sagano students. We had to head to different parts of Arashiyama to complete questions on the activity sheet given to us. Throughout the activity, we interacted more with the Japanese students assigned to our group and through their explanations, we learnt more about Arashiyama and Japanese culture.




2015年厦门——翰墨传情文化交流之旅(第六天)
nchsglobal


今天,我们到永定参观世界文化遗产——福建土楼。土楼的功能性极强,除了有防御作用之外,还有冬暖夏凉的效果。在导游的讲解下,我们才知道一些土楼更有着上千年的历史。在这宏伟壮观的建筑面前,我们不得不钦佩古人智慧的博大精深。



来到永定,我们绝不能错过当地的美食——芋子板。芋子板是客家人的传统小吃。在赖导的指导下,我们个个都尝试搓木薯粉。这看起来很简单,但实际上却很考功夫哦!



走了一段时间后,赖导请我们到她家休息品茶。每一种茶叶都有不同的特色和功能。比方说:土楼养肝茶不仅有护肝的作用,喝完以后嘴里还留有清香;红美人茶除了有开胃养胃的作用之外,更有养颜的效果。

福建土楼之行,在学习之余,我们也“吃喝玩乐”一番,每一位同学都非常享受!
