School hosts Hong Kong visitors

STUDENTS from the Sun Kei Primary School in Hong Kong have come on exchange all the way to Warwick.

They are being hosted by Warwick Christian College families and taken on a series of activities both at the college and in the wider area.

The 24 students and five staff have had sessions with the spinners and weavers, created gum-nut babies with the Warwick Potters' Club, visited Jondaryan Woolshed and gone on a photographic expedition of the Jumpers and Jazz in July trees in Palmerin St.

Warwick Christian College offers Chinese language studies to all students and was thrilled to host the Sun Kei students.

Principal Terence McCorkell said the cultural exchange "goes both ways".

"It is a great opportunity for the students of Hong Kong to see our town and also a great chance for children of our college to meet people who are part of our wider global network", Mr McCorkell said.

The students and staff have really enjoyed their time in Australia so far, and were amazed by the wide open spaces.

"We managed to warm winter up a little for them in their first week, but it was good that they also got to experience a Warwick frost in the last few days," he said.

The students will travel home next week after visiting Girraween National Park, taking further classes and visiting the Warwick pig and calf sale.

They will stop at the Gold Coast before boarding their plane for Hong Kong.
