Mrs Bishop's 2012 Visit

Thursday 22nd November

Miss Lin Xin Vice Principal of the No 1 Affiliated Primary school to the Fuzhou Institute of Education visited our school. She observed lessons and a range of different activities such as PE, Design Technology, Science and Dance. The children had prepared entertainment for her visit. Year 3 sang a Chinese counting song in perfect mandarin. Year 5 played the Harps with assistance from some Year 6's on percussion. They performed the story of the Willow Pattern. Years 2,4,5 performed a variety of dances.

Miss Lin attended assembly where she was presented with a range of gifts to take back to her school. She then presented gifts to Cathcart Street representing Chinese culture including letters from children in her school who we hope our children will reply to and establish friendships.

Miss Lin was delighted with her visit and was very impressed with the children of Cathcart Street. She has taken back many ideas from her visit and discussions with staff that she wishes to introduce in her own school. Look out for further news and pictures on the visit in the childrens news letter and our picture gallery.
