Jinji Lake Primary School

Jinji Lake Primary School

Today, Aleksia, Georgia, Ryan and Lachie headed to Jinji Lake Primary School. When we got there, we were melted by Cherry, Makayla, Fred and Gong. These students were lovely and had great English. They gave us a detailed tour of the school. We went to a class, where we were introduced to the class by the vice principal. Then, the students were involved in a paper cutting activity. Luckily we have already been involved in a paper cutting exercise in Beijing, so now we were all experts! The students and I cut out a cute Koala, and were given it as a present in a frame to bring back home. 

The students then went and had lunch in the canteen, as a normal Chinese student would do. After eating, they went and played with the other students. The students and their Chinese partners played some basketball together, and there was some very red and hot looking faces on the White Hills students by the end of the game!

Then, we went back to our hotel so the students could be picked up by their parents for their home stays. Georgia, Aleksia and Chilli all went off for an overnight stay. Ryan, Lachie and myself were picked up by two Chinese families, Fred and Gong for an afternoon of activities and an evening meal. The boys and I spent the afternoon with the families at the Suzhou Museum, looking around Pingjiang Road (this is where we got to try chicken feet!! It tasted fine, however we all couldn’t quite get past the fact that we were eating a foot) and finished at Suzhou Center for a delicious Chinese dinner. 

It was a fantastic day seeing the differences in a school in China, compared to our own at White Hills! Jinji 

Lake has around 4000 Primary students at the school, and no air conditioning in the classrooms… it was a very hot sweaty day!
