After the boys game, we are now in Shipei JH for the girls game!
SJH 26 vs NV 14
Our team is lagging behind a little but bit by bit we are learning the opponent’s strengths and weaknesses to strategise better.
SJH 60 vs NV 21
We may be losing but we are most definitely improving leaps and bounds. The most important is to never call it quits and give up!
NV 29 vs SJH 90
Opponents are certainly unbeatable – and no wonder, they are the national champions. Our girls are playing against the best!
NV 43 vs SJH 100
Last 20 sec of the game!
We played better in this quarter than the previous quarters, which is evidence that the girls are learning during the action 🏀
Even though we lost the game, I think our girls have gained valuable experience, especially when they are up against the national champions among the Junior High schools in Taiwan. We really put up a good fight and we’re proud of them 🙂
Here are some student responses about what they learnt from the immersion with SLJH!
“It was a very good learning experience, the students were very enthusiastic and the activities were very engaging! Hosts were very friendly even though there was language barrier 😀”

“I learn more about Taiwan such as their water management system. I stepped out of my comfort zone and learnt how to communicate better with others!”
“I made new friends today and enjoyed myself! In particular, I learnt about Taiwan as a country and especially new information such as water management system. 👍”
The students morphed from being shy and reserve in the morning to really bonding with the Taiwan hosts by lunchtime. It was heartwarming to see 🙂 let the photos do the talking!
During the closing, Siyi represented NV basketball to give a closing speech, thanking the hosts again for their warm hospitality.
Final group photos!
That’s the end of the immersion and we are now going to two more schools for our friendly matches! It’s not going to be easy so JIAYOU to our players! We will also like to extend our thanks and invitation to Shilin Junior High School to visit NV sometime soon and let this friendship prosper 🙂
We are immensely honoured to be so warmly welcomed by Shilin Junior High School – everything from the preparation, to student and staff’s enthusiasm, down to the lunch and snacks provided was great and we truly cannot thank the school and the principal enough ☺️
Our representative, Mr Hee, exchanged gifts with Principal Lin of SLJH, and expressed our collective excitements about the immersion.
More photo updates later about the activities that the students have experienced! For now, lunch beckons 🍱
