In April 2019, forty-four teachers and students of our school joined a study tour organized by EDB to Chongqing, spending four days studying the history and culture of Chongqing and Mainland China.
During the tour, teachers and students had the opportunity to visit Chongqing No. 8 Secondary School and had wonderful cultural exchange activities. In addition, they visited a commercial firm and many local historical and cultural attractions, such as Hongya Cave, Chongqing Three Gorges Museum, Chongqing Science and Technology Museum, Ciqiko Ancient Town (Porcelain Village) and Dazu Rock Carving and Dazu Rock Carving Museum.

Writer's Talk: Ms. Winsome Lee, a forensic anthropologist

Ms. Winsome Lee, a forensic anthropologist, was invited as the guest speaker of the Writer's Talk on 17 January, 2019. With her expertise, she explained to our students how to trace the sex, age, race, origin, etc. of an unknown skeleton through scientific investigation. Our students were so amazed by the science behind this profession.

The school library at the same time put up a display on good books about the topics of forensic science and death. Book shelves were immediately cleared by science enthusiasts.
