Hangzhou Weekly News - GYS Primary Teaching Experience

Stephen Chan of the 'Hangzhou News' team here gives us a glimpse of last week's 'Inter-Disciplinary Experience', in which our students, working together in teams of three, attempted to teach a morning of classes to small groups of visiting students from the Primary division of our partner school, Greentown Yuhua School (GYS).

Most of our IDEs are reprising successful events we ran in our pioneering year, but this was a completely new initiative. It was a fairly massive logistical challenge - with nearly 800 students (aged 8 to 10) and around 50 of their teachers coming to our campus during the course of the morning. It was also a demanding - but, we hope, enlightening - activity for our students.
