Building Cultural Links with Local Schools

Dulwich College Suzhou Linking with Local Schools

Last Friday, Year 5 had a wonderful Mandarin learning experience visiting one of our local primary schools, Suzhou Fang Zhou Primary School, for an intercultural exchange. During their time there, our students enjoyed joining in with Chinese lessons, experiencing science activities, playing football, making drawings in an Art class and seeing the Chinese students doing their morning calisthenics.

We are very grateful to the students and staff of Fang Zhou Primary School, who were extremely welcoming and kind to all of our students. It was a wonderful morning, and we look forward to further interactions with the school in the coming year for all of our Junior School students. These experiences are incredibly valuable in fostering international awareness and ties with our local community.
