With assistance from the Léman Family Association, students of Dongchen Middle School from Zhaojue county, Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, had a one-day visit to LIS recently. The visiting team consisted of seven secondary students, led by their local teacher, Ms. Jisha, and the volunteer teacher, Mr. Wen, from Zhejiang University.
At 9:00am in the morning, our Principal Mr. Ferguson and Head of Primary Mrs. Connor warmly welcomed the visitors and gave them a brief introduction to our school. Then the Dongchen Middle School students joined in the Primary assembly and gave an incredible singing performance.
The Dongchen Middle School students were invited to join our lessons in Chinese, Music and Art. They enjoyed a wonderful Chinese class with our Chinese teacher Ms. Ivy, and all the students in class had a good time learning about Yi culture and words together. Afterwards, they joined the music class and art class, where they experienced the diversity of international schools and creative classes. They all left a piece of artwork created in the art class here in Léman, to be a part of the whole school Art Tile Project.
It was a fantastic, memorable experience for both the visiting Dongchen Middle School students and our own LIS students, as it showed the value of being connected to different schools in Sichuan province. A big thank you to our dedicated LFA volunteers who have led the way with our charitable work, and we hope this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship between schools.
