Mr Smith and Mrs Baggett were invited to present at two conferences for Chinese teachers in Shenzhen, China on Monday 14th - Friday 18th November 2016. This is an amazing opportunity for our school. During the week, they also visited our sister school, Huafu Primary School as well as working with the Futian Board of Education to observe current educational practices in some of Shenzhen’s most successful schools.

We also welcomed back the staff and some children from Huafu Primary School on Monday 28th November until Monday 5th December. There were ten children, who play in the districts Brass band and three teachers working with us in school. They worked mainly with year five and six children, the school band and choir however the whole school had the opportunity to meet them.
