In July two students in Year 11 took part in the inaugural Perse exchange with schools in Singapore. Both Nanyang High School for Girls and Hwa Chong Institution (two of the country’s highest achieving Chinese-medium schools) are members – along with the Perse – of the SAGE (Strategic Alliance of Global Educators) group of schools. The exchange was a great success and enabled Perse students to experience attending school in a different context, to live with host families, and to visit all the major sites and attractions in Singapore (including Universal Studios Singapore on the island of Sentosa – pictured) as well as taking part in day trips to neighbouring Malaysia and Indonesia. The return visit to The Perse by our Singaporean guests will take place later this term.
