The Confucius Institute in Beijing, China sponsored a Principal’s Bridge Delegation in October of 2019. As the principal of a Chinese Dual Language Immersion School, I was privileged to travel to China with 148 other American educators to participate in cultural activities, lectures and conferences to help make connections with schools in China.
At the conference, I met with officials of #22 Middle School in Xing Xiang, Henan Province and found that we had many things in common. First and foremost is that we care about our students and we want them to have opportunities that will help them be successful wherever life leads them. The principal and I signed a Memo of Understanding at the conference - basically an agreement that we would offer our students opportunities to communicate with each other.
Since then, we have corresponded with the school, sending each other letters and videos. Recently, they sent these videos back to our students. Since our students are gone for the summer, I asked for permission to share them with the community, which they graciously granted.
You may be interested to see what life is like in an elite Chinese middle school and how they are coping with being back on campus. I hope you will enjoy a look at life in China.
