As part of our annual partnership exchange with Hangzhou Greentown Yuhua School, we hosted 5 students and their teacher on 29 April to 3 May 2019.
Our Hangzhou visitors had a wonderful week. They toured our campus and participated in lessons. They were well looked after by our student host families, just as our students were looked after when they visited Hangzhou. During their visit, our host families took them to different restaurants, including local “cha chan ting”, to let them experience Hong Kong’s food culture.
Principal Cheung took the Hangzhou students and their CSS hosts to the Dr Sun Yat-sen Museum in Central. The building itself is one of the few well-preserved examples of British architectural work in Hong Kong, worth visiting in itself. It was built in 1914, built by the renowned comprador Ho Kum Tong as his family home.
At the museum, apart from seeing the permanent exhibition of Dr Sun, they also saw a special exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1919 May 4 Movement. Students of both schools learn at a great deal about modern Chinese History that afternoon. This event is part of the Education Bureau’s Sister Schools Exchange Programme. For over a decade, students as well as teachers and principals from both schools have benefitted from visiting each other. Our partnership is flourishing.
