Luke from our sister school sent us home with calligraphy ink and calligraphy paper. So we put it to good use, Skyping with Luke and the Calligraphy teacher in China. 3/4S were able to watch the teacher and have a go themselves. They found out there are many ways to write ‘Loong’ or dragon in Chinese Characters. The Team China kids came over to help as well, with Lach out the front modelling on the board and Jess, Mill and Jack helping the younger students with their grip of the brush and technique. A great lesson. Mr S was the official photographer and Ms Fitz just painted her new top! Thanks to everyone involved.

Lach and I brought back some treats from China for our grade to experience a little tiny bit of China. The fun part was we had no idea what we were eating, all the ingredients were in Chinese and the boxes gave us no clues either! So we guessed! The kids were all open minded, had a go at everything and used the chopsticks Ms Fitz bartered for to eat their food. Mrs Mc also contributed a few goodies for our feast. I think the White Rabbit lollies were the favourites 🙂 Ask Lach what his favourite food in China was- he answers “Maccas”. Lach!
Our final day in China! What an experience we’ve had! So privileged and lucky to be given this amazing opportunity. We took some time to reflect on our journey and appreciate this fast growing and immense city. I hope we recognise it when we come back one day- don’t go changing to quickly, Shanghai. Thanks for the memories and thanks to the 4 gorgeous kids who travelled with me and made my experience one to remember!

Today we are going back to the Pudong airport to go back to Australia. Yay! We are all happy to be able to see our families again. We can’t wait to tell you all about what we did in Shanghai and Suzhou. Also thanks Mrs Ashby for the Skype calls. We loved the Skype calls and we skyped our family’s at Starbucks once. The countdown will begin now. That’s all from me. Byeeeeeeeeeeeee.

After the shopaholics finished bartering and dropped off all their goodies back at the hotel (notice the new Jack), we went for one last long walk to take in the beautiful and VERY busy, Shanghai. We made our way down to The Bund and indulged in ice cream. We missed the big red bus, so we had to hail a taxi….believe me, that’s an experience in itself! Jeepers!
Today we caught a bus to a big park to have a go at Tai Chi. We learnt some techniques. Then we had a go at moving the Tai Chi Master- he wouldn’t budge! So we got Craig and Brett, our two big strong teachers to have go! The Master just about lifted them off the ground! The second time, they moved him though! It was very funny!
True Story. This happened after we went to the pearl tower. We went to a dumpling store for lunch. Then we went inside the restuant. They gave us our drinks and some weird looking things. It looked like chese so I put it on my dumpling and ate it. It tasted all sour and people thought it was Lime Green Grass. But it was ginger. Everyone started laughing at me. But I didn’t care. It was me that did it. That’s all from me. Stay tuned for new posts coming soon. From Lach H
