Kota Kinabalu: Kian Kok Middle School will send 32 teachers and students from its catering classes for an eight-day study camp at Taiwan’s Lee-Ming Institute of Technology on June 30. 

The study camp is designed to develop Form Four and Five students’ culinary skills via intensive learning and practice. 

“These vocational study courses, exclusive to our school, will not only enhance their (students) understanding of the catering field but also provide a comprehensive experience of Taiwan’s vocational education model, “learning by doing, doing by learning,”” said School Board Chairman Datuk Clement Yeh during the school’s flag presentation ceremony. 

He said the practical nature of the study camp activities will allow students to actively participate and experience the activities with the Tourism and Hospitality Group at Lee-Ming Institute of Technology and receive lectures from seasoned mentors in the same group. 

“This hands-on approach ensures high-quality teaching, with a strong focus on student’s practical operations, thereby enhancing learning outcomes through real-world experiences and project practice,” he said. 

Aside from the Tourism and Hospitality Group, students can also attend classes in the Performing Arts and Film Group and the Fashion and Creative Group at the university. 

“This cross-disciplinary exposure will broaden their horizons and stimulate innovative thinking,” he said.

He said the study camp offers a unique opportunity for students to concentrate on learning and practice, gaining in-depth knowledge and comprehensive improvement, which will undoubtedly propel them forward in modern education and training.

Yeh and several school board members are scheduled to visit Taipei on July 3 to attend the students’ graduation ceremony, visit Lee-Ming Institute of Technology, strengthen cooperation between the two schools, and further discuss vocational education.

Meanwhile, School Principal Goh Teck Seng said that the study camp will help students broaden their horizons, cultivate independence and adaptability, and experience different education models and campus cultures. 

Goh hopes the students will lay a solid foundation for their future development, adding that Kian Kok Middle School’s catering class is well-equipped, offering ample time for students to intern in the catering classroom besides theoretical lessons. 

He welcomes secondary school students interested in pursuing a future career in catering to join the catering class at Kian Kok Middle School.

He also expressed his gratitude to Lee-Ming Institute of Technology for their meticulous planning and arrangements, which will provide a rich learning experience for our teachers and students. 

“We also extend our gratitude to Dr Sim Kah Siong from the school board for generously sponsoring this study camp, a gesture that is deeply appreciated and valued, and without which, this enriching experience would not have been possible,” he said.
