Hi! We are from SMPK 7 and we want to share about experience in immersion with you guys. Our immersion started from 18 – 22 January 2016. We gathered at the airport at 5 a.m. We were so excited. We boarded the airplane at 7:45 a.m. When we arrived at Changi, we immediately went to immigration and took off. We went straight to universal studios of Singapore. Although it was raining, we had so much fun. We went to Universal Studio from 12 – 5 p.m. Then, we went for dinner near Sentosa. We also went to a water show at Marina Bay Sands. It was a story about how Singapore in the future would want to be. We head to the hotel named YWCA Fort Canning.
The room is quite big, in one room there are 3 people. It is still fun because we got to sleep with our friends. On the second day, we get dressed in our school uniform and went to North Vista Secondary school. When we arrived there, we were given introduction about North Vista and their method in learning. We were split into several groups that each group consists of 5 – 6 people. We Studied in their school for 2 days. The students were very nice, especially the buddies. They were so polite and caring, they are became our friends almost immediately. The teachers were so nice, but their Mandarin were so advanced. We couldn’t understand anything they said. After our first day of school, we visited the Newater, where we used water is renewed inti clean water. We were given advice to use water efficiently. We also went to Bugis street and Shopped for souvenirs, We were only able to shop at one store and just for half an hour, that was such a rip – off. We had dinner and then watched a show in Garden By The Bay. It was a lightshow in the Superstrees. Supertrees are made of metal not trees. On the next day, we went to school again. It was our last time to meet them. So we gave them souvenirs from Indonesia, took a couple of selfies with them, and saying goodbyes. On the fourth day, we went hiking on the treetop walk native reserve. It’s a 7km walk, the vistarians joined us on our walk, it was very tiring. But it was worth it. The view was amazing. We had so much fun. After the walk, we had lunch at school. Then we went to the science center. It was so cool, we also got to watch a show. The show was played on a 360o screen. After the show, we went to Sentosa island to ride the ludge and Skyride. So fun, we had a great time. Next is lunch and finally hotel. That night, we packed our bags. In the morning, after breakfast, we load our bags to the bus and went shopping at Chinatown. Then we bought chocolates at the chocolate factory. Then, we had lunch near the hotel at Mongolian Restaurant. It was delicious! Next, shopping at orchard. But after shopping, we went to the airport. When we got there, we saw our vistarians friends. They said goodbye and we checked in and went home. So that’s the end of our immersion.
