Building links with China
As part of the ongoing link between Maghull High School and Minggang High School in China, 20 Year 12 students and four staff left Maghull for ten action packed days in China.
In Beijing they visited the Temple of Heaven Park, the Imperial Palace and the Summer Palace. Next, was the Great Wall of China, which did not disappoint.
Students made the heroic effort to climb some very steep sections as it snaked across the hillsides into the distance.
The party travelled on to Shanghai, with all of its wonderful sights and finally, they enjoyed four days’ home stay with their partner students from Minggang High and their families.
Mr Hurst, the schools Chinese link ambassador, said: “This is the way to really experience China – immersing ourselves in the food, lifestyle and daily activities of the Chinese people. It was fascinating but difficult, fun but awkward – every type of emotion as our two cultures met over those four days.
“Our friends from Minggang are due to visit in 2017 to cement our ongoing partnership and we are already looking forward to it”.
