Global Mindset; Adaptable and Resourceful

Overseas Immersion TripIn Catholic High, we strive to develop the cultural intelligence of our students through authentic and situated learning. Authentic learning for world-readiness can take the form of our students going on experiential learning and internships, and this can be greatly enhanced through immersion in overseas context, engaging other cultures and making a positive impact on the lives of people around the world.

These overseas immersion trip aim to:

  • Enable students to exchange knowledge with others and to be of service to communities;
  • Create opportunities for students to develop leadership qualities in unfamiliar environment;  and
  • Develop students’ 21CC such as global awareness, communication skills and cross-cultural skills.

Our school leverages stakeholders and community such as alumni experts to provide support, advice and resources, especially in the area of overseas cultural experiences, industrial visits and attachments. Our students have travelled to China, Japan, Thailand, USA, United Kingdom, Vietnam and other countries for immersion. In turn, we have forged collaborations and partnerships with overseas schools, and our students have hosted teacher and/or students from China, Taiwan and Japan for immersion in our school.
