In an effort to foster cross-cultural educational collaboration and the exchange of innovative teaching ideas, a group of sixteen educators from various Singapore schools led by Miss Lim Puay Ee of Canberra Secondary School, Singapore, embarked on a visit to St. George's School in Brunei Darussalam, on September 13, 2023, Wednesday.
The visit aimed to create a platform for knowledge sharing, professional development, and to strengthen the bonds between educators from both countries. This report highlights the key aspects of the visit, including the objectives, activities, and outcomes.
The primary objectives of the visit are:
- To facilitate the sharing of pedagogical strategies, teaching methods, and classroom practices between Singaporean and Bruneian teachers.
- To promote cultural understanding and appreciation between the two nations through interactions among teachers.
- To provide opportunities for professional growth by exposing Singaporean teachers to Brunei's education system and vice versa.
Upon their arrival, the Singaporean visitors were warmly welcomed by St. George's School Principal Mr. Janidi Jingan, Chairman Mr. Anthony Liew, Deputy Principal Mr. N.M. Mubarak, Heads of Sections, and teachers.
Principal Mr. Janidi briefed the visitors about the school, mission, vision, educational system, facilities, and the activities carried out in the school. Then it was followed by discussions and idea sharing during which teachers of both the countries shared on the school system in Singapore and Brunei. This fostered cultural appreciation and understanding.
Followed by a photo session, the Singaporean educators were given guided tours of St. George's School facilities, including the computer labs, science labs and other facilities.
Both Singaporean and St. Georges’ educators benefited from sharing their experiences and learning from each other. The visit also contributed to stronger cultural ties and promoted mutual understanding between the two nations.
The visit of Singaporean teachers to St. George's School in Brunei was a resounding success in achieving its objectives of knowledge exchange, cultural understanding, and professional development.
The visit laid the foundation for future collaborations and continued knowledge exchange. The sessions ended with a sumptuous brunch hosted by St. George’s School.
The Singapore visitors expressed their sincere gratitude to St. George's School in Brunei Darussalam for the warm hospitality and willingness to engage in this educational exchange. They returned home with new ideas and fresh perspectives.
On 17th and 19th August 2023, a total of 34 Geography students visited the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD), located near the Brunei International Airport. The students were divided into two groups. The first group, which consisted of 18 students from Year 10B, visited BDMD on Thursday, whereas the second group, consisting of 16 students from Year 9B, went on Saturday afternoon.
On arrival at the site, students and teachers first collected a visitor pass in exchange for an IC or passport. The students then had the opportunity to tour the Meteorological Garden and the Weather Forecast Centre of BDMD. Students engaged in interactive sessions, presentations, and demonstrations conducted by knowledgeable officers and staff.
In a presentation by Ms. Nadiah Yasin, a BDMD officer shared that, beginning in the late 1950s, weather service in Brunei primarily served aviation activities. She added that over the years, the demand for meteorological services grew, and since 14 January 2013, BDMD has officially been the country's National Meteorological Service and is the authority responsible for the provision of meteorological and climate services.
It is hoped that this field trip and witnessing the work carried out by professionals in BDMD will inspire and help students connect theory with real-world applications and contribute to their overall learning and development. Before leaving, teachers and students enjoyed some refreshments and took group photos with the BDMD staff members.
We are grateful to the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department for hosting this educational field trip and making it an invaluable experience for the St. Georgians!

On 19th August 2023, St. George's School conducted an English Language Workshop for Lower Primary Parents at the Parish Hall. Spearheaded by Head of Primary Madam Alice Ting, as well as facilitator, Teacher Atiqah Morni, the workshop was held with the aim of focusing on phonetic awareness and blending techniques, specifically designed to help parents teach their children effectively at home.
The workshop saw the presence of the school CEO, Anthony Liew, Principal Janidi Jingan, Deputy Principal N.M. Mubarak, teachers and over twenty parents as participants. The event started with a welcoming speech by Principal Janidi Jingan who emphasized on the aims of the workshop and the importance of learning Jolly Phonics and Jolly Grammar. Following this, there was a story-telling segment by one student from Year 2B, Thahfeem, and one student from Year 6A, Jaireh. Parents were able to see the results of effective Jolly Phonics training through the clear and concise presentation from both students.
To start the first session, Madam Alice Ting reiterated the aim of the workshop, which was to implement various strategies and techniques that would assist parents in teaching their children the fundamentals of phonetic awareness, blending, spelling and grammar for effective reading, writing and communication. She then introduced the basic skills of Jolly Phonics - Letter-Sound Recognition, Letter Formation, Segmenting and Blending Skills as well as Identifying Sounds in Words. She also touched on the basics of Jolly Grammar, including the importance of reading - along with a showcase of a number of books that could prove useful in child learning and development. A quick group photo and light refreshments soon followed after the first session.
Teacher Atiqah kicked off the second session, explaining her goals for the session which was to ensure parents’ confidence in teaching spelling systematically, expanding vocabulary, improving comprehension and introducing parts of speech. She then delved into the benefits and uses of Jolly Grammar, using a number of physical activities and practices that kept parents engaged and focused for the remainder of the session. Participants were then split into different groups where they had a number of hands-on activities regarding different parts of speech.
At the end of the workshop, parents were able to bring home a learning pack with multiple course materials in the form of teaching sheets as well as phonetic sound cards. It is hoped that the parents who attended the workshop had many takeaways from the sessions and that they are now better equipped in nurturing and supporting their child’s language journey.

This event was initiated by Head of Secondary, Mr Aywen Chak, and fully organised by the members of the Humanities Department. The event was open to all upper secondary students from Year 9 to Year 11 with the purpose of giving the students the opportunity to learn basic business knowledge, and that they might experience by themselves how to run a small business.
The response from the upper secondary students was overwhelming and unexpected. Nineteen booths were registered and they offered varieties of foods, beverages, confectionaries, girls' accessories, educational games, and others. Prior to the event, each group had promoted their stalls through social media like Instagram and Tik Tok, and students also printed posters and flyers which were given out to potential customers. All booths were operated solely by the students.
Supported by unexpected crowds of the day by parents, ex-students, students from other schools, and friends, this event was seen as successful where a few of the stalls managed to earn cash sales amounting to more than $500!
Congratulations to all students who were involved, and appreciation to Mr Aywen Chak and the members of Humanities Department.
