A recent visit to St Georges Primary School in Barrow-in-Furness was a wonderful opportunity to both introduce Chinese language and culture to the school, but also to improve the Confucius Institute's contacts within the area of Barrow, which we hope to expand upon in the near future.

The Confucius Institute regularly offers 1-day visits to local schools in an effort to introduce children to aspects of Chinese culture. On this day, 4 of our teachers visited the school and were engaged in a series of fun classes throughout the day, reaching out to multiple year groups. Activities included teaching of basic Chinese language and songs, Paper-cuttings and lantern making, and even a Wu Shu demonstration by our Wu Shu instructor, Robert Luo.
