China Update 3

I thought it was time to bring us up to speed with all things Chinese! Unfortunately I’ve had to withdraw from the exchange (at least physically) as I’ve not been too well and felt that I wouldn’t be able to lead and support the group on this exciting adventure as well as I needed to. Fortunately another colleague has taken my place and the group is now really getting to grips with what they are going to be doing.

Risk assessments have been completed, more forms filled out, visas sought, the usual passport frenzy calmed and more information shared with the young people about what lies ahead of them. (Ranging from dodgy toilets to amazing banquet meals).

As we are trying to expand both their and our skills in social media we have set up a blog for the young people to share their adventures with all of us and their Chinese counterparts. We are aiming for this to be an ongoing blog after the group return and for it to still be in use when we host (hopefully) the return group. Do visit for yourself to see how our experiment goes and here is a sample of some of their video introductions that they’ve posted so far:-
