Mrs Browne recently visited Shanghai, China, for a week. She was accompanied by principals and teachers from local Belfast schools and schools from further a field. She had the opportunity of visiting schools which included Jiading qu Boata in Zhong Xue near Shanghai (photos below). This visit was sponsored by the Chinese Language Council International (Hanban) and the Confucious Institute with the aim of promoting the Chinese language and culture world wide. St Ita’s is very grateful to Aquinas Grammar and the University of Ulster for the invitation to join this most worthwhile project. St Ita’s now looks forward to our primary school curriculum being enriched with new experiences which include Mandarin, Taiji, Calligraphy and Chinese Dance.
