Grade 8 – Hei Shui

In Buddhism there are the Four-Noble Truths.

On the grade 8 trip to Hei Shui we hoped that the students would see that not all people live the same life as we do here in Chengdu, that different people have different beliefs, that the natural environment should not be taken for granted and that it is good to have some fun with your friends.

At the homestay in the Tibetan village; we walked to the local temple, helped feed the pigs, with the cabbages we picked and sort of helped make the barley wine. It  made us realise how interdependent the locals are on each other and how they have to think about their food, not day to day, but season to season, storing corn and chillies for the winter.

The monastery was beautiful, isolated at the top of the mountain allowing the monks to concentrate on getting closer to their own personal enlightenment.

The Glacier was also beautiful but it concerned us that it has lost over 25% of its volume in recent years.

What will happen to the ecosystems that rely on the environment that it creates as it disappears?

Was it fun? Well look at the pictures.
