-Support education

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.

2015年支教团队在梁楠,李卫东两位老师的带领下, 一行共十五人于四月十八日踏上了前往安徽省合肥市肥东县撮镇中学的旅程,进行了为期一周的爱心助学交流活动。

自2014年九月起, 支教工作小组安排了一系列的募捐活动, 在全校师生,家长和波士顿社区的支持下, 取得了非常好的成绩。谭氏教育基金会也对支教项目给予了强有力的支持。此行他们将所得捐款资助了21位贫困学生,帮助他们完成高中学业。

一周的活动进行的丰富多彩, 爱心传递圆满结束。以下是由团队学生董海伦制作的募捐活动和学生培训的短片。 请看Yutube 链接:
