P4 Ancient Civilization Exploration
Invited by Wuxi Education International Communication Center, P4 students went for a field trip to Wuxi Museum on the afternoon of Oct 29. The activity is part of the series of activities organized by the center aiming to introduce and promote Chinese traditional culture to foreign students in Wuxi.
History goes from the past and nourishes the current with its rich ancient wisdom and culture, whereas the history will go for future with its creativity and innovation via modern technology development. Through this trip, the students got chances to know and feel more about Wuxi where they study and live. At same time, with a contrast between history and modern technology, the students also feel more responsibilities about what they can create and bring to the ‘history’ that they join in and witness.
