An incredibly long flight and a 7 hour time difference did not phase the nineteen Piggott students who were all set for a new adventure! They arrived in Chengdu to a warm welcome from the staff of Luzhou High School.
After a short rest, the activities began. From visiting forests, temples and farms, to attending calligraphy and Chinese taiji classes, the visit was action packed from beginning to end. In addition to the wide variety of activities that took place at Luzhou High School, and the exciting day trip experiences, the Piggott staff and students enjoyed spending time with some of the families from the school.
The group even managed to squeeze in a visit to the Giant Panda Research Base, in Chengdu, before their return flight!
Students and staff really made the most of this wonderful opportunity and they truly experienced, at first hand, Chinese culture, education and lifestyle. Many memories were created and they will no doubt be treasured for years to come.
Everyone is looking forward to the return visit from the Chinese students and staff next summer.
Until then, students can enjoy finding out more about the adventure during one of Mr Crawley’s upcoming assemblies!
