Day 5. After refuelling with a delicious buffet breakfast, our sister schools collected us in private vehicles from the hotel and drove us to our school. We all had an incredible day experiencing true Chinese education. It is so different because they don’t have any play time! The schools were very accommodating and made us fee extremely welcome. You can see from the photos that many schools went to a lot of effort to serve us very opulent meals. After this, many of us met up with our home stay families and went off for an evening meal or night time stay. Those who didn’t participate in the overnight stay attended a tour at Tiger Hill followed by a Japanese banquet style meal.
Team China 2017 have landed safely in Shanghai, China. They had a good flight and the kids were great! The travellers are about to make their way through Customs and Immigration.
