We then went to the beach where the Hutong staff got the students to role play a famous local tale of Zheng Chenggong (or as he is known locally "Koxinga"). Students played several games including an improv game, a relay race, a rock-paper- scissors-frisbee-dodgeball competition, and a sand art competition. Finally we ate dinner at an amazing Hakka food restaurant.
For many students this is the first time that they have been away from home for a long period of time. The Hutong staff and ourselves are emphasizing personal responsibility with the children. Focusing on not forgetting things and being prepared for the next step. I am just as impressed this year as I was last year with the professionalism of the Hutong staff. They are a great group of people!
