This year on our annual visit to China, the children and their families had another great experience of Chinese culture and education. The visit began with a cultural visit to Beijing where the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, Great Wall of China, Temple of Heaven, rickshaw ride and an acrobat show were all packed in to two days! Families were given their first experience of traditional Chinese food and it was gorgeous. Following a 5 hour journey on the bullet train, Shanghai was the next location. The children enjoyed three days in school where they got to make friends with Chinese children on a trip to Shanghai Zoo, followed by lessons in music, playground games, calligraphy, art, psychology, Chinese tea art, and ceramics. While their children were in school, parents got to experience more culture in a visit to a water village, Jing’an Temple, visited the second largest skyscraper in the world and experienced day to day life by touring Shanghai’s parks. Next year will be the tenth anniversary of our link with Zhongshan School which is growing stronger and stronger on a yearly basis.
