On 16 August 2019, the college welcomed Mr Yang Hua, Principal of Chongqing No. 8 Middle School and a contingent of nine primary and secondary school principals from Chongqing province. Principal of Eunoia Junior College (EJC), Mrs Wong-Cheang Mei Heng and several heads of department hosted the contingent for a tour of the school's facilities, lesson observations, and an exchange session with 80 students from the college's Bicultural Studies Programme (BSP).
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Mrs Wong recalled that in 2016, the Ministry of Education, Singapore, the Chinese embassy and the Chongqing Municipal Education Commission established a partnership between Chongqing No. 8 Middle School and the college even before we welcomed our first cohort of students.
The overseas exchange programme is one of the key components of the BSP, allowing students to appreciate and understand the socio-economic developments that have taken place in China. The college had the opportunity to visit Chongqing No. 8 Middle School in 2017 and 2018, receiving a warm reception and leaving with fond memories.
In the light of the growing partnership between the two schools, Eunoia Junior College is pleased to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with Chongqing No. 8 Middle School, marking the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
