Cross-Cultural Education

For the sake of encouraging students to increase other learning experiences through overseas learning activities, our school has set up Study Tour Committee to coordinate overseas exchanges and visits starting from 2012. It is hoped that our students can broaden their horizons, personally understand the characteristics of different countries, nations, and cultures, enhance their collaboration capabilities and build close relationships with peers.

  • Study Tour

Before study tours, we will hold several study workshops to deepen students’ understanding of local related topics, such as social culture, governance, economic development, artistic development, geologic structures and landforms, etc. Through the reports of different groups, it is hoped that in addition to enhancing students’ understanding of different local topics, it also enhances students’ communication skills and ability to collaborate with others. We also encourage students to take up different tasks in the preparation of the study tours, such as designing booklets, painting, shooting, photography, presentation, translation, etc., so that all students can give full play to their strengths.

After study tours, through exhibition board production, morning/weekly assembly sharing, and journals writing, students can share and conclude what they have seen and experienced during the study tour.

Apart from study tours, as an international medium of communication, the English Language plays a crucial role in broadening student's international-mindedness and understanding of Western culture. The English program at BLMCSS and its underlying curriculum, strives to expose students to authentic and meaningful practice in situations in which the target language is used. Toward this end, every year, F.1 students at BLMCSS interview tourists around Hong Kong culminating in a presentation in which they share their experiences and reflect on their use of the English Language. Senior form students are also encouraged to explore the relationship between language and culture through related modules and on-site learning experiences. Topics such as global warming, working holidays, Western and Asian popular culture, and the life of exchange students are also explored.

  • LMC & CHATTERIS

With the help of Chatteris, BLMCSS also recruits native speakers from UK and US universities to act as ambassadors of their respective cultures and to provide further opportunities for on-going authentic and meaningful practice in English.  Through their efforts to lead discussions and facilitate learning activities in English, our students are better equipped to become responsible and actively involved global citizens.

  • LMC & AFS

The collaboration between LMC and AFS has been long-standing throughout the school’s history. Every year, the school would welcome at least one exchange student for the year, giving students’ endless opportunities for them to interact with people of different race and culture. Our exchange students’ mostly come from European, American and Asian countries. They immerse themselves into classes of different forms and subjects throughout the year. On top of that, our exchange students actively take part in extra-curricular activities and excursions with our students outside the school. Such occasions give our students different chances to communicate, learn and foster a deeper understanding of intercultural similarities and differences among people.

Besides, our very own students are encouraged to take part in the exchange programs themselves. Every time they do so, each one comes back with endless stories to tell. Seeing them mature and grow from their personal experiences from an exchange program is something LMC is proud of every time.

Due to the pandemic, chances were limited for our students to travel abroad. However, several of our students were still able to take part in a Youth Intercultural Online Learning Project that enables them to cultivate a good understanding of people from different places in the world. We believe that if we cannot send them out to see the world, we can still bring the world for them to admire through such programs held by AFS.

Our future endeavor is to be able to continue to bring our students chances to learn about diverse cultures and people through different program as well as events like the upcoming Inter-cultural Day held in the latter half of the year.
