Several Blue Coat School students from Year 9 are visiting China from the 13th – 29th July. Organised by the Chinese government, the students will visit sights in both Beijing and the coastal city Xiamen, whilst taking lessons in Mandarin and learning more about the diverse Chinese culture.
“Despite the numerous warnings of the ridiculous heat and humidity, I am sure that this trip will provide countless, unforgettable memories as we explore the Far East. I’m especially looking forward to visiting the famous, historical sites of Beijing such as the Great Wall and the Forbidden City and as an avid lover of Chinese food, I’m sure the cuisine won’t disappoint!” Joseph, Year 9
