Ms. Sue Su, Executive President, Mr. Rob Stewart,Executive Principal and Ms. Tan Wei, Head of the Chinese Department, gave a warm reception.
First of all, Mr. Wang and others were showed around campus. They were impressed by the strong international campus atmosphere of our school. Whether it is architectural design or campus culture, they all reflect the diversity and inclusiveness of the school culture. Systematic and comprehensive Chinese courses and celebrations of traditional Chinese festivals also give international students the opportunity to learn about Chinese culture.
After that, they came to the conference room to discuss in detail with the principal and teacher the composition contest. Mr. Rob Stewart said that since the beginning of the school, we have always maintained long-term friendships with government departments, social groups and local schools in and around Wuxi. We encourage students to actively participate in community services, which is also in line with the IB curriculum concept: service is action.
Mr. Wang and Mr. Hu thanked for our strong support to this event and hoped that we could take this opportunity to establish friendship. In the future, more high-quality activities will await the participation of our school.
