Inspiring Young Minds

With recent restrictions in place impacting on opportunities for face-to-face learning, two Primary school students at the British School of Nanjing took matters into their own hands… by teaching on their own English classes to their local community.

When Lilian Grace and Zara (both aged 9), realised that children attending local schools were often at a loose end in the afternoons, they put their heads together and came up with a plan to offer free English lessons to children in the community area of their compound.

“We both wanted to help people so we made signs and put them around the compound,” said Zara. “On the first afternoon, two boys came, and on the second day there were two more, so we knew that we were doing a good thing.”

The girls asked for permission from their parents, but wanted to plan and teach the lessons themselves. “We taught them how to write and speak in English, using ideas that we liked from our lessons at school,” said Lilian. “We made it fun by playing English games and at the end we would read everyone a story.”

“We enjoyed it a lot and would definitely do it again.”

With their tremendous community spirit, and passion for education, Lilian and Zara encapsulate the core values of the British School of Nanjing - a bright future in education awaits!
