We have welcomed 40 students from our partner schools in China. The senior students from Xuejun High School in Hangzhou were hosted by generous families and provided the opportunity for students who travelled to China during our Term 1 break to reconnect, build on their new friendships and reciprocate the generosity their school community showed our tour group. We were also visited by an enthusiastic group of Year 7 & 8 students from Wenzhou Experimental Middle School as part of their English language study tour. Several of the Wenzhou students have been participating in a pen pal program with our students and it was exciting for students from both school to finally meet each other and put a face to a name.
Connecting with students from different countries and welcoming them into our school community in an enriching opportunity for all involved and we are extremely grateful for those who assist us in making this possible.
