SKTM is proud to announce the forthcoming visit of 2 teachers and 8 children from Melbourne, Australia, 1 teacher and 5 children from Indonesia and 1 teacher and 5 children from Thailand on an International School Exchange Programme (ISEP) in September 2012.
The main objective of this programme is to create awareness, appreciation and enable firsthand experience of the Australian/ Indonesian and Thailand & Malaysian way of life in terms of the diverse and different cultural backgrounds, lifestyles, school systems for students of both SKTM and the respective schools. Each visit is 2 weeks and the children must be in Upper Primary (Tahap 2), preferably from Years 5 & 6.
Students and teachers from SKTM will be hosted by families of children from the respective schools’ teachers and children and vice versa. They will stay with the host families, attend school and carry out the same activities as the host families for the duration of their visit – in other words, experience living as an Australian /Indonesian/Thailand/ Malaysian –doing the same thing as their “host sibling & family” would do in their day-to-day living.
We are inviting applications from interested parents who would like to be in this programme, to host the Australian,Indonesian and Thailand children and perhaps send their child over to Australia, Indonesia and Thailand in November 2012. However it should be stressed that HOSTING A FOREIGN CHILD DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN YOUR CHILD WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE SELECTED TO GO TO AUSTRALIA/INDONESIA/THAILAND.
Refer to the PTA e-mail announcement dated 18th May 2012 for the terms and conditions, and application form.
