The China exchange group has spent the last three days at our sister city in Dali Yunnan Provence experiencing the local cuisine and school classes. 

Students enjoyed a class of calligraphy on Monday morning followed by a trip to the Number 8 primary school, celebrating our visit with song and dance.

Our trip will continue into the first week of the school holidays including a trip to Xi’an on the bullet train and Beijing and China’s Great Wall.
