– Support Education China Trip

Led by NCLS teachers, Nan Liang and Weidong Li, the group of 15 students went to Cuozhen, Hefei, Anhui province during this spring break. They had very successful one week exchange activities there.

The student volunteer group formed in September last year. Students participated a series of fund-raising activities which organized by NCLS Support China Education Working Group. With the support of the whole school, parents, Tan’s Education Foundation, and the Boston community, they achieved very good results. The donations have passed to Cuozhen high school, which will help 21 economically disadvantaged students there to finish their high school education.

Please check the i-movie made by team student Helen Dong for the group activities (fundraising and student training) before the trip. The yutube link is –

We will hold a school wide presentation from 3:45pm – 5pm on Sunday, June 7. China trip team students will share their story with you. All parents and students are welcome.
