Singapore Students Visit

On Wednesday November 11th, 26 girls and accompanying staff from the Singapore Chinese Girls School (SCGS) visited Radley.

 

The girls were from the equivalent of Year 10 (Removes) and thirty of our Removes were given specific roles as hosts, aided by four College Prefects, who gave the girls a tour of the campus. As well as experiencing classes in our English, Maths, Modern Languages and Science Departments, the girls joined some of our boys at lunch and sampled the Coffee Shop atmosphere.

 

After the day's lessons the Coffee Shop was the venue for around 40 Radleians to hear excellent short presentations by the SCGS girls on the history, education system and food of Singapore, as well as Singlish. The Q & A session which followed this proved to be an excellent forum for the pupils of each school to quiz each other about the qualities and priorities of their respective institutions.

 

A very fitting conclusion to the day was to see the SCGS girls amongst the audience for the film and talk about Arnhem, by Peter Clarke, one of the Arnhem veterans. This was a most enjoyable visit and one of great mutual benefit.
