China - Hangzhou

Zhejiang University High School

Partner school for the d-classes

In 2011 we were able to establish contact to Zhejiang University High School school in the city of Hangzhou in China through the Institute of Intercutural and Regional Studies (ToRS) at the University of Copenhagen. In the fall of 2011, a delegation of Rysensteen's principal and a few teachers visited the Chinese school and brought home a formal contract on the collaboration between the two schools.

In the spring of 2012 Rysensteen sent a pilot class to China where they participated in some the Chinese classes and enjoyed home stay for three days with their Chinese "buddies". The class also made a short trip to Shanghai which is about a two hours' train journey from Hangzhou.

Since then, the students of Rysensteen have enjoyed yearly stays at Zhejiang University High School as well as return visits from the Chinese students.
