2018 China Trip A Huge Success!

Wednesday 14th November 2018

Students from Lasswade spent 17 days travelling in China this October.

The first stop was Shanghai, where they stayed with students from Lasswade’s partner school Tianlin No. 3 Middle School. There was a celebration of the 10th anniversary of visits between the schools, visits to Qibao, Pudong, Yu Yuan and Tina Zi Fang (tourist sites around Shanghai) and a sports day.

After the first week in China – and having recovered from their jet lag – the students travelled by high speed train to Tianjin, home of No. 25 High School which is our Confucius Classroom Partner. The group again stayed with families and followed a programme of in-school activities and visits around Tianjin.

One highlight of the visit to Tianjin was the visit to Tianjin Experimental Primary School. This was one of the original schools set up after the revolution and is directly funded from the Tianjin government. With over 2000 students and 400 staff it is an amazing place. The use of technology sitting beside ancient crafts of calligraphy and painting gives an insight into a modern Chinese school. The students took part in the schools 70th Anniversary celebrations; a real honour!

The final part of the trip included a trip to the Great Wall and two days in Beijing visiting the Old Summer Palace, the Olympic Park, Tiananmen Square and The Palace Museum (Forbidden City).

This was the schools 5th visit to China and marks the 14th anniversary of the partnership with the school in Shanghai.

All-in-all it was a full and exciting trip.
