LFA Summer Celebration Trip in China 2018
LFA faculty will be traveling around China for the next week and will visit the cities of Shanghai, Beijing, and Taiyuan! Read about their trip below.
We started off today with a visit to the prestigious Shanghai Foreign Language School. They warmly welcomed our delegation from Lake Forest Academy. After a presentation about the school, we had the opportunity to meet in small groups with teachers from corresponding disciplines to exchange classroom practices, curriculum, and culture. It was a great experience to learn first-hand about the culture of the Chinese education system. Many teachers found it enlightening to better understand where our Chinese students are coming from.
After another amazing lunch at a great seafood restaurant, we had some free time. Some of us went to the observation deck at the Shanghai Tower and marveled in the incredible views and functional environmentally conscious design. Others explored more of the local area and markets.
The main event this evening was the summer celebration banquet. It was wonderful to see our students again who were so happy to share their love for their home with us. The students put on a great presentation welcoming the new students and congratulating graduates. The seniors made a video to share their favorite LFA memories and give advice to new and current students. It was an unforgettable event and it really felt like everyone in the room was family.
