The Education Bureau (EDB) organises the Mainland exchange programme for students entitled “An Exploration into the History, Culture and Ecology of Sichuan (Primary Schools) (2018/19)” (the Programme).  In line with the school curriculum, the Programme aims at providing different learning experiences for students to enhance their understanding of the abundant history and historical heritage, to allow students to appreciate the local traditional art, custom, life and culture, as well as to increase their knowledge of natural ecosystems of Sichuan and reflect on the importance of conservation in Sichuan.


EDB has commissioned a service provider to organise the Programme between September 2018 and August 2019.  The trip lasts for four days.  Students from Primary 4 to 6 may participate.  Please refer to Annex 1 (Chinese version only) for details of the Programme and application procedures and Annex 2 (Chinese version only) for the itineraries and other information of the Programme.


Schools may apply for joining the Programme within the 2018/19 school year and encourage students who have not participated in Mainland exchange programmes before to join.  Participation of students is on a voluntary basis.


Schools, which would like to nominate their students to participate in the Programme, should download the application form from the websites of the service provider.  The completed application form should be returned to the service provider by fax at least 12 weeks prior to the departure of the trip which the school intends to join.
