The 2016 LCHS annual China exchange trip took place from 18th to 29th October. Six Year 11 and 10 students and two staff took part in the trip. The LCHS students stayed with the Chinese students of our Chinese Link school - Tangshan Foreign Language School - for a week. They learned Chinese fan dancing, martial arts, paper cutting and shadow puppet making. They visited the Tangshan International Horticultural Expositionand had a day trip to the Great Wall. They stayed in Beijing for two days, visiting Tian’anmen Square, the Summer Palace and Beijing Zoo.
They had a wonderful time in China:
Jorge:“Once in a life time experience, loved every minute.”
Nick:“Easily the best school trip by miles! Definitely recommend it!”
Jo : “I had a lot of fun and would definitely go again… considering going back to Tangshan for a gap year!
