TODAY – Wednesday 30th May
Today we began with another visit to our sister school. We began the day making dumplings. This was an enjoyable activity. The head chef assisted us and gave us helpful hints to keep the dumpling together. We played a game of soccer and participated in their daily exercise program. The dumplings were delicious!!!
In the afternoon we went to the silk museum and saw how silk is made. Many of us bought a beautiful silk memento. Next was a trip to Tiger Hill.
We are having a fabulous time and getting a real taste of China’s culture. Not long until our time ends. What an amazing experience it has been. Please also check out our photos 2018 folder as we have uploaded a few other photos there as well.

TUESDAY 29th MAY
We arrived at Fangzhou PS at 9:30am and were welcomed by the Principal and Vice Principal. Amy, Lucy and Jordan were also there. They have all been to Kangaroo Flat PS. We all participated in a calligraphy session and worked with a Chinese student to make a beautiful art piece.
Next we were introduced at a whole school assembly and we all had a turn on the microphone in front of 3,000 students – very brave!! We met our class and spent a session making a Chinese decoration. Everyone was very friendly and happy to help us. Lunch was delicious.
In the afternoon it was time to head back to the hotel and we participated in a Kung Fu master class. After that we were back on the bus and headed to the Humble Administrator’s Garden.
Ava was a professional at Kung Fu! Tamika enjoyed making the Chinese decorations and Maddy painted a beautiful painting. The highlight for Will was visiting the school. Everyone loves Will’s hair!
