Finnish teacher representatives came to Xiangshan for an educational exchange visit
Thanks to the government leadership of Pudong New District, Xiangshan High school and Lumit Art High School in Kuopio£¬Finland became sister school in 2016. Three teacher representatives from Lumit visit Xiangshan for the educational exchange, from May 1 to May 6.
During the visit, Finnish teachers observed the music, art, P.E. and English classes in Xiangshan. Juha, vice principal of Lumit, gave a music lesson introducing Finnish folk songs to the students in senior one. In the five-day-visit, the student representatives showed the Finnish guests around Xiangshan, and introduced the development and artistic characteristics of Xiangshan to them. Four students showed the traditional Chinese culture and art—- Guzheng (Chinese traditional musical instrument) ensemble, calligraphy and Chinese painting to the guests. Finnish guests took an active part in the badminton race with students and the teacher sports meeting as well.
On May 5, the student representatives from Lumit and Xiangshan had a dragon boat race in Shanghai Maritime University. On May 6, the last day of the visit, we discussed further cooperation and communication between Lumit and Xiangshan at the meeting room in Xiangshan. Juha, vice-principal of Lumit and Xu Feng, principal of Xiangshan signed the Memorandum of Cooperation for the long lasting friendship and cooperation.
Next month, seventeen Finnish teacher representatives will visit Xiangshan.
Art makes the school known by more people, and the basic education in Finland is among the best of the world. We believe that this cooperation will make both of us become better and better.
