Our recent China Day in Dowdales School was a great success and we were thrilled by the positive response from teachers and students.

Teachers and volunteers from Lancaster University Confucius Institute introduced Chinese culture to Year 7 pupils in Dowdales School, including an introduction to Chinese language, Chinese Characters, Calligraphy, Paper-cutting and Martial arts (Wu Shu). The China Days we offer to schools enable pupils to experience aspects of Chinese culture that are fun and engaging, which provides a fantastic opportunity to expand their world view, and also creates an opportunity for further education about China. 

Students attending these classes showed great interest, and feedback from teachers of Dowdales School was that the day went really well and was very well received by both the students and staff. We hope that this positive response will generate further cooperation between the Confucius Institute and Dowdales School.
