2024 SEP 中国行团队利用春假走访奉化武岭中学,圆满完成一周的文化交流助学活动,师生平安返航,满载而归!武岭中学校领导高度重视,热烈欢迎本校师生的到访,安排了丰富多彩,形式多样的项目。团队师生通过风俗人情考察,传统文化体验,特色课程学习,并走进课堂,和同龄学生互动,中英文演讲,英语角交流,在体育馆里进行球类切蹉,在全校性的”三独” 比赛上倾情出演,短短的一周时间,结下了深厚的友谊。我们这次共资助了武岭中学22位同学,12位高一年级学生和10位高二年级学生。

借用带队老师胡凤飞董事长的微信朋友圈来作个小结: 牛顿中文学校支持教育项目第十四次中国行活动,完美收官。
此次中国行团队被学校师生家长们评为最强阵容:最强男女领队组合,董事长校长亲自带队。 最强学生组合,六位男生,六位女生,个个中文流利,才艺双全。 最强团队家长: 从波士顿到香港航班,从上海转机香港回波士顿航班,都有一位家长同行协助领队办理团队出关安检,登机,并协助摄影记录下团队合作互动的精彩瞬间。在星期六宁波的一天参观活动中,又有一位家长同行协助。
