Ningbo National Hi-tech Zone Experimental School,Visit August 2018
In Week 3 of Term 3, we were delighted to welcome the students from our sister school in China to Titirangi Primary School. The group joined our school for the whole week, staying with local homestay families, some of whom were families from our learning community. The students were treated to a cultural programme which included: a welcoming Powhiri, Kiwi cooking, traditional Maori arts, Harekeke flax making, Robotics, Nga Takaro - Maori stick games, a local beach visit to Cornwallis, a Maori myths and Legends class, Sports and a Kapa Haka session. Following a Friday afternoon assembly hosted by our Chinese visitors, including a traditional gift ceremony and Chinese student performances, we wished our friends farewell and a safe journey home. We are very much looking to taking a group of Year 6 students to Ningbo in April 2019 as we did earlier this year.
