Sec 3 R2IGHT Camp (VIA/TIE Trip)


This year, Juying Secondary changed the focus of our Sec 3 VIA/TIE trips to increase the level of student ownership and involvement in the VIA/TIE process, so as to better achieve the objectives of the VIA/TIE trips: During the June/October holidays, our Secondary Twos and Threes were involved in the Trips for International Experience (TIE) in various countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.

The objectives of the trip are to develop our students in the 21st century competencies of global awareness and cross-cultural skills. Through their experience in serving the needs of children in orphanages and schools and also tackling environmental issues such as water pollution, our students have definitely grown in their self-confidence and self-directedness as well as developed into more concerned global citizens and active contributors to handle social issues around them.

... Objectives of VIA TIE Trip

1.    Develop in our students the 21st Century Competencies of global awareness and cross-cultural skills and sensitivities;

2.    Expose students to Asia, especially South East Asia, and sensitise them to Singapore’s place in the world; and

3.    Deepen students’ commitment and rootedness to Singapore.

 To plan for the trip, our Sec 3 students went through the following steps:


Stage 1

·      Identified a social issue that they wanted to learn more about.

Stage 2

·      Conducted online research on how that issue is being tackled in Singapore.

·      Selected a country that has done well in tackling that issue to visit and learn from.

Stage 3

·      Crafted their desired learning outcomes from their VIA/TIE trip.

Stage 4

·      Worked with their form teachers to plan the trip itinerary and select the trip vendor.

Following their VIA/TIE trip, the Sec 3 classes all shared with the school what they had experienced and learnt during their trip. Feedback from the students, the teachers, and even the staff of the places visited by the students during their VIA/TIE trips, was very positive. Students shared that they had benefited from the programme tremendously.

As a follow-up to the VIA/TIE trip and to give the students an opportunity to further develop themselves and apply what they have learnt, the Sec 3 classes will be planning their own VIA activity to tackle the social issue they had chosen, but in Singapore’s context. 

Through this programme, our students have definitely grown in their self-confidence and self-directedness, as well as developed into more concerned global citizens and active contributors to tackling social issues around them.
