Our sister school, Raey Guang Elementary (Pingtung, Taiwan) will be visiting us October 29 through November 1. This will be their third visit to our school and we are thrilled to host them again.
Making the trip are 20 children (ages 8-12) and four teachers. There are twelve Georgetown families that are hosting our guests. The host family stays are the most memorable part of the visit–our Raey Guang friends never forget the kindness that is shown to them.
We have posted the photos of our visitors paired with their host students on a board in our lobby. You can also see a display in our rotunda highlighting features of the Taiwanese culture. Mr. Chen, one of the teachers, created a special blog to introduce each student.
The purpose of the trip is to expose the Taiwanese children to American culture, education, language, food and traditions. They are very excited to spend time with us during the holiday of Halloween.
Did you know that you can see the school of Raey Guang in the town of Pingtung by using Google Earth? If you have this application downloaded, paste this address into the site: No.86, Xingfeng Rd., Pingtung City, Pingtung County 900, Taiwan. Here is a photo of the school entrance using Google Earth. Isn’t technology amazing?!
During the visit, we will share photos on our blog. We are counting down the days to their arrival.
