Joan Jang, a student from Taiwan who attends Purdue University, shared through email that we had made the news in Taiwan! Mrs. Yu Wen, the principal of our sister school, Raey Guang Elementary, was interviewed about our partnership. The photo in both articles shows her holding our student artwork (a gift from Georgetown to Raey Guang) that was presented during her visit to our school in October 2008.
Both articles cite our blogs–the one you are viewing right now and our blogs set up for FAMILY BLOGGERS (matching families from each school to communicate with one another) and SCHOOLS THAT BLOG TOGETHER (blog communication between the students/teachers of both schools). The articles (below), are in Chinese and English. I wanted you to be able to see both versions–and appreciate the beauty of the written Mandarin language. Please be aware that the English translation is close…but not exactly true to the elegance of the Chinese language. The message of collaboration and appreciation of both countries and cultures is strong and clear in both languages. Enjoy! Mrs. Reagan
