During the Easter break Deputy Head, Mr Dunne, had the privilege of visiting our Chinese Partner School, the Binhai Experimental Middle School, in Dongli a suburb of the city of Tianjin. Tianjin is a large city some two-hours drive from the Chinese capital, Beijing.
The trip, funded by the British Council Connecting Classrooms Project, allowed Mr Dunne to meet staff and students from Binhai and to help to teach English to the year 9 students at the school. Students from both schools have exchanged work and good wishes and the partnership will enable joint curriculum projects on the topic of healthy living to be developed between the two schools.
Staff from the Educational Board in Dongli, including the Director of Education, gave a warm welcome to Mr Dunne and other teachers representing the London Borough of Wandsworth, on the 7 day visit.
