School Visits in Asia
During our big Asia trip in 2001 we did three different school visits.
The aim of the visit at schools in Malaysia/Borneo, Thailand and Singapore
- To visit pupils and teachers in their life situation at schools in Malaysia/Borneo, Thailand and Singapore and set up a network for long-term and improved contacts.
The contacts are made especially with children and school personal from Kindergarten to Elementary school in the above mentioned countries. My hope is that my visit will be followed by corresponding visits from the current schools in my own school in Vadstena.
- I will put forward a picture presentation and film material. The pictures will from a pupil perspective show similarities but also differences in actual school- and social situation.
- I wanted to see and find out how Scandinavian and Swedish children manage to go in an international school with all what that brings. For example language, cultural clash, friends, traditions, food, relations to teachers and other. Climate, homework and other demands that will be made upon them.
The schools that we visited during June-July 2001 were the following:
