[ News ]  5+5+5 Exchange Programme continues to bring Sichuan students to VTC - 2017-04-11
March saw two visits from VTC’s partners in Sichuan as part of the ongoing 5+5+5 Exchange Programme, with students taking part in International Fortnight (IF) activities.
 
Friendly competition. Sichuan College of Architectural Technology sent a team of energetic students to play in the Basketball for International Friendship competition on 3 March at IVE (Morrison Hill).

Team spirit. The competition began with an encouraging welcome speech from the principal, who later presented the prizes. Visiting students were received by IVE Construction Management students, and those not playing watched the matches together, cheering for their teams.
 
Closing event. As the third IF came to a close on 10 March, 16 Tourism and Hospitality students with a teacher from Leshan Vocational & Technical College joined the Finale to celebrate.  Guests enjoyed the Chinese Culinary Institute lunch and performances by VTC students.
 
Students impress. After lunch guests toured the training hotel and kitchens and were not only impressed with facilities, but also by the fact that VTC students operate the hotel, which came as a surprise.
 
From these activities it is evident that learning and exchange should not be limited to the classroom. Though these visits were short, students made new friends and gained a different learning experience including sweating, cheering and competing together.
