2014 Chinese Student Tour
In 2014 the college welcomed 20 Chinese visitors to the College. The group stayed with us for a week. The 17 students ranged from age 7-16. The week was action packed with barely a spare minute. The students were all hosted by Home Stay families for 4 nights. Feedback from families was that this was not long enough and they would have loved to spend more time with their students. The experience of hosting has enriched the lives of each family and they thoroughly embraced the opportunity. The group was accompanied by Lenry (Principal of Easy Foreign International Language School, WeiHai) and Eleanor (Chinese Coordinator in Weihai). The group was shown around our college and also participated in a short Wodonga local area tour. The students were able to experience EAL, Information Technology and AAP Maths classes and a Sport & Recreation session. We then departed for a day trip to Mt Pilot, Woolshed Falls and Beechworth. The students were encouraged to use their English skills to order lunch at the Beechworth Bakery. A little bit of shopping was completed with the honey shop being very popular. The evening was spent with the Host family.
