Internationalisation

Greenridge Internationalization Program

PURPOSE

In the globalised world, there is an increasing need for Singaporeans to possess a global outlook and operate within multi-national settings. Such a global outlook is best developed from a young age. The provision of overseas immersion by schools would therefore be key to developing this global outlook.

In Greenridge, our objectives of Internationalization Programmes are:

  • To realise the school’s vision of developing their 21st Century Competency, to be gracious and dynamic global  citizens 
  • To expose teachers and students to the globalized world and help them be better informed about the impacts of globalization 
  • To deepen commitment and rootedness to Singapore


DISTINCTIVE DEPARTMENT PROGRAMMES MAIN ACTIVITIES / HIGHLIGHTS

Greenridge Secondary School (GSS) provides cultural immersion experiences through overseas learning journey trips as an integral part of the school’s educational programme for identified students, as well as fostering partnership opportunities by hosting international guests.


IMPACT ON STUDENTS' LEARNING

At the end of each overseas learning journey trip, both students and teachers have gained a broader perspective of the world, and are able to better understand some of the challenges faced by Singapore in the midst of growing competition from other countries. 
 
Students have also gained valuable life skills and experiences, from their interactions with overseas guests as well as learning about the culture and heritage of the various places of interests
