Senior students from Beaconhills are nearing the end of their cultural tour of China and have found it nothing short of fascinating.
The students are currently staying with host families at the College’s sister school in Xuzhou, Suining Senior High School.
Berwick Campus Principal Jenny Williams, one of the staff members accompanying students, said the long school day in Suining for senior students – from 6.20am to 10pm – has been a huge adjustment for the Australians.
She said family life also had its challenges but “everyone is so nice and hospitable to us all – we are learning a lot from each other.”
She said while the Chinese students were keen to practise their English, students have learned to communicate in other ways – through facial expressions, pictures, gestures and the translated apps on phones.
The visit has also included many of the famous attractions, such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square and of course the Great Wall of China.
Students also travelled to Xian to see the ancient Terracotta Warriors, which date back to 210 BC.
The students return to Australia on the morning of Sunday 9 April.
