Visit Sarawak Like Moonshot Academy, Beijing!
|If you are looking for an enriching & unique cultural
exchange experience for your students, look no further! Visit SMK Tabuan
Jaya (Sarawak State Sports School) like Moonshot Academy, Beijing, did in January 2019! This was also the first time my school hosted an international cultural exchange delegation!|
What Is Moonshot Academy?Moonshot Academy is a private school in Beijing that attempts to address... "What is the future? The origin of MSA stems from a constant inquiry on this question. Scientific advancement is changing the traditional professional system. Those seemingly popular jobs are overtaken by machines at an exponential speed. Climate challenge has turned from an allegedly irrelevant issue to a concrete and factual challenge. The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has proposed "strengthening moral education and cultivating people" as the fundamental mission; more and more educators are asking the essential meaning of education. We, living in the present while looking beyond the future, decide to embark on this journey by initiating a future-oriented education project."
What Was In The Itinerary?
|4. Damai Beach: Delegates took a break at the beach, but found a lot of plastic waste, so we took 3 for the sea.|
|5. Netball: Delegates played netball for the first time in a clinic run by the state players at SMK Tabuan Jaya. All of the delegates were good sports & had a good time competing with each other.|
|6. Learned Malay (Language): Delegates learned some basic phrases in Malay, our national language, from the students at SMK Tabuan Jaya. Some basic Iban phrases were included too.|
What Was Their Experience Like?Check out this video of participants reflecting on their experience (in Mandarin).
Thank you for visiting, Moonshot Academy! My students are still talking about you today! You have left an indelible mark in their lives & changed how they thought about China for the better. They have also experienced firsthand that the world is bigger than just Malaysia & English has definitely gained a whole new level of relevance thanks to you! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon! We're still waiting for a brave person from Moonshot to try one of our sago worms! Challenge accepted?
