Our new sister school, Taicang Senior High School, will send 12
students here late in July for a 10 day visit. Taicang is on the outskirts of Shanghai, much like Berwick is in relation to Melbourne. We are seeking families who’d like to express interest in hosting a visiting
student; students are 16-17 years old and speak serviceable English.
You may be aware that last September our then Premier, Ted Baillieu, led a trade delegation to Victoria’s Sister Province, Jiangsu, to build and
cultivate links between our two states. Jiangsu province straddles the Yangtze Delta just North West of Shanghai. Historically it was a farming and boat building centre (where the fleets of Zheng He sailed from), it nowadays hosts major electronics manufacturing
industries as well.
I hope that families of students in Years 9-12 strongly consider taking on a student, I know that it will build better cultural and social links between our schools and nations. We hope to be able to send some students to Taicang next year on a reciprocal visit.
Student Attitude to School Survey
Posted April 24, 2013
The annual survey of student opinions begins next week. I [Gusty Martin] will be visiting classes over the next week and a bit to conduct the surveys. Last year students gave a very positive view of the school and we hope to capture further evidence of improved satisfaction in this new survey.
