During half term, 21 students from the Senior School and accompanying staff embarked on a cultural, historical and spiritual tour of China.

They spent three days touring Hong Kong’s landmark sights, including the famous Victoria Peak. An overnight train then took them to Guilin in rural mainland China, where students were able to visit a local family and see inside their home. For some, it was a humbling experience and the first time they had witnessed such conditions. The group took a four-hour boat trip along the Li River, passing the most scenic stretch of river, and watched fishermen use cormorants to catch their fish and then sell their wares.

From Guilin they flew to Xian to visit the terracotta warriors who guard Qin Shi Huangdi Tomb. After another overnight train the group finally arrived in Beijing for the cultural highlight of the trip: a tour of the Forbidden City and the Great Wall. Finally, there was an excursion to Tiananmen Square where the group learnt about the pro-democracy protests that took place there in 1989. The immensity of Chinese history made a lasting impression on all those who were part of this memorable trip.
