Hosting a group of students from China
Ivanhoe East Primary School has commenced discussions with Jiefang Road PS in Lian Yungang City in China to formalise a sister school partnership. The benefits of such a partnership include:
Supporting our Chinese language program
Broadening students’ perspective
Developing students’ intercultural understanding
Providing opportunities for teachers to work together
The principal from Jiefang Road PS was a member of the delegation that came to our school in November last year and our schools and students have a great deal in common. Following conversations at School Council, we are
looking forward to welcoming 12 Year 5 students and two teachers to our school at the start of next term.
These students and teachers will require homestay arrangements within the community for six days (between 21st July - 28th July). We encourage you to think about whether you would like to host a student for this time and will hold
an information evening to outline the expectations. The child would become a member of your family for the duration of their stay and would come to school to participate in learning activities. You do not need to have a student in Year
5 to consider this opportunity for your family.
The information night will be held on Tuesday the 8th
May at 7pm in the Performing Arts room so please register your attendance here;
