Farnham Primary School welcomes Chinese Visitors

Youngsters at a Bradford primary school said “ni hao” to a group of visiting Chinese children.

Farnham Primary School played host to a group of 11-year-olds from the Shandong province in north east China as part of a trip arranged by Bradford College.

The 24 Chinese pupils joined with Year Six students from Farnham to play a business enterprise game in the morning before touring classrooms to learn about a typical British school day. 

The Lord Mayor of Braford, Councillor Geoff Reid, and the Lady Mayoress Chris Reid also popped along to the school on Stratford Road in Little Horton to welcome the Chinese visitors to the city.

Farnham Primary School head teacher Richard Edwards said: “It was a lovely opportunity for our pupils to meet children from another nation and culture.

“It is nice for our pupils to be able to show off their school and the things that we do here and the success that we have.”

Pan Enqun, vice principal of the Primary School attached to Shandong Normal University, said: “It was interesting to get first-hand experience of how English children do their studies in school.

“The trip to the UK will broaden our pupils’ horizons so when they return back to China they will be self-improved and have a better future.”

The Chinese youngsters also visited Cambridge, London, York and Manchester during their UK stay.
