The 2017 China Tour (30 March – 12 April) will be officially launched during an information session in the SMS Lecture Theatre at 7.00 pm on Wednesday 27 July 2016. This exceptional opportunity is being offered to boys and girls currently in Year 8, 9, 10 and 11.
The 2011, 2013 and 2015 tours were an outstanding success and were enjoyed by students from both St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School. A few of the highlights included exploring the Forbidden City, climbing The Great Wall, touring the Hutongs by rickshaw, watching the renowned Era Acrobatics show, the pandas, coming face-to-face with the Terracotta Warriors, admiring the modern 798 Art District, shopping and visiting our sister school in Hangzhou. A popular addition to the 2017 itinerary will be a full day at Shanghai Disneyland® Park.
All students interested in participating in the 2017 China Tour are encouraged to attend the information session with their parents where the program will be outlined and the application/deposit form distributed. Participation in the tour is not limited to students who are studying Chinese.
Parents are encouraged to discuss this wonderful opportunity with their children and email an expression of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 22 July to assist with further planning.
