2018 VPA China Student Exchange   

The 2018 China Student Exchange Program is well underway! This year's exchange includes 48 students from 7 schools, including Alamanda College, Essendon North Primary School, Hartwell Primary School, Hillsmeade Primary School, Laurimar Primary School, Solway Primary School,    and Woodford Primary School.

The students, all from Grade 5 and 6, have embarked on the trip of a lifetime! So far they have been sight-seeing in Shanghai, and they are now immersing themselves in classroom and cultural activities at Jinling Primary School in Nanjing. The exchange lasts for 14 days and is designed as an instrumental part in building Asia Literate schools in Victoria.

VPA Life Member Aileen Hall is our Tour Leader. She is an invaluable asset to the tour, having lived and worked in China for a number of years and generously sharing her local knowledge and contacts.

Check out some snaps below of the tour so far!
