DaXue Road Sister School from Qingdao, China visits us again!

Penny O'Connell —

23 Students, 3 teachers, and 6 parents were welcomed to Halswell School for a quick visit on their way to Queenstown. We have a unique and highly valued relationship with DaXue Road through the Qingdao Sharks Rugby Club. They have hosted us in China several times and their students and staff have been visiting here for 8 years.

A huge thank you to our families who billeted visitors and shared our NZ culture with them. The cultural interchanges were very special and some wonderful friendships made. Our Halswell students and staff provided fun learning activities and let the Chinese students experience our way of learning!
