Over the past four weeks, SCBC Mandarin classes have had the wonderful privilege of hosting a visiting Chinese educator, Ping Wu. Ms Wu’s visit was arranged through an AFS intercultural program, the purpose being to provide Ms Wu with insights into the Australian education system and school life. Hosting Ms Wu for a month was also a wonderful opportunity for Ms. Chow and our Mandarin students, who gained new insights into Chinese culture.
We would like to extend a big thank you to one of our College families, the Stewarts, who accommodated Ms Wu for the month. Debbie Stewart, mother of Hannah Stewart in Year 2, played a significant role in this program, offering warm and generous hospitality to Ms Wu and giving her a taste of Australian life.
We are planning to visit Ms. Wu in China next year through our 2017 China study tour. Hopefully our Intercultural understanding and friendship will last as long as the Great Wall of China.
