July 2018 will be an extremely exciting month for St Philip Howard Catholic Voluntary Academy as this is the month the school will embark on its first ever trip to China!
Working in conjunction with UCL’s Institute of Education and Hanban, China’s Educational Authority, SPH will spend just over 2 weeks in Beijing and one other province (tbc).
Highlights in Beijing will include the Great Wall of China, Tiananmen Square, The Summer Palace, The Forbidden City and the Olympic Complex, including the Bird Nests Stadium.
20 hours will be spent in the classroom learning Mandarin, but the fun doesn’t stop there. Pupils will participate in a number of cultural activities ranging from dumpling making to Kung Fu.
This truly is a trip of a life time!
Good luck to those pupils applying for a place.
