  • Inspiring Day at School for Migrant Workers

    Posted: 20/04/16
    Today has been a busy but inspiring day.  The students spent time at a migrant worker school teaching English & Dogeball to classes of 45 before returning to run an extremely succesful Sports Festival.  It's been hard work, lots of fun and a real eye opener showing the differences accross the different types of schools in China.

  • A Busy But Fun Day in the Classroom

    Posted: 13/04/16

    It seems that we have avoided jet lag! Perhaps due to the very busy day yesterday but we all seemed to sleep well, and the students all jumped out of bed ready to start the day at 6.15… well perhaps a few needed a bit more encouragement to get up!

  • An Early Start, a Relaxing Afternoon and an Exhilerating Evening
