    YCIS World Classroom Trip

    Trevor, Year 9, Century Park Campus

    Two weeks before my trip to Sri Lanka through World Classroom programme, I knew little about the country. Now, I have an excellent background on the history, culture, and customs of the island country. Although I have been fortunate to travel quite a bit, Sri Lanka has some of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen, ranging from high mountains to sandy beaches, and to lush forests. There are miles of gorgeous mountain valleys and long stretches of beaches, and the colour of the sea is indescribable.

    A Look inside Our Trip to Guyi Garden

    Matylda, Year 8, Gubei Campus

    In April, a group of Years 8 and 9 “Chinese as Additional Language Level 7” (CAL-7) students and two teachers went on a field trip to Guyi Garden to learn more about Chinese history and culture. When we arrived at our destination, we went through the gates of the Guyi Garden. Everyone was amazed! Gardeners were planting flowers, people were walking on the paths enjoying the day, and tourists were taking photos. When we went in, our teachers told us about the Guyi Garden. They told us that the garden was once owned by a wealthy Chinese merchant and he had lived inside it. When we walked on the path, we saw that there were statues of Chinese instruments and historical people.
