Advertiser Article: St George forges a bond with Chinese

ST George College students were busy making new friends from China’s Hangzhou Chongwen Experimental School last week.

The 29 visiting Chinese students from Years 4­-6 were matched up with students from the Mile End school to share lessons and activities that included cooking, Greek dancing, physical education and a trip to Cleland Wildlife Park.

Acting principal Stephanie Kosmetos said this was a new education exchange program with China for students in the primary school. St George’s Year 4­-6 students are able to study the Chinese language.

It’s been a good experience for the children. Our students have been homestay families to the children, and as a result, they have established really good friendships.

Ms Kosmetos said the program would be an annual event each August.
