CHS students to embark on discovery of China

Condobolin High School students will soon embark on a trip to ChinaBy Sally Willoughby
A select group of year 10 and 11 Condobolin High School students will make the pilgrimage to China in six weeks to explore the rich culture, discover the ancient traditions and experience some of the best shopping across its most famous cities.
Coordinated by CHS teacher, Bev Small, the thirteen day tour will give the students the full China experience taking them to see the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai, the Terracotta Armies in Xian and Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.
“We put the idea forward in July 2008 and the students have been saving and getting organised since then,” Bev said.
“This is a way for them to learn about another culture – they’re all getting pretty excited and it will be a great experience for them all,” she said.
The students who are all in year ten and eleven will leave for the trip on 26 September and return on 8 October during their school holidays.
The school is looking to implement a permanent program to take students overseas every two years with CHS teacher Mel Rees to organise the next adventure.
