China - Hangzhou
ZHEDA FU ZHONG - PARTNER SCHOOL FOR THE D-CLASSES
In 2011 we were able to establish contact to Zheda Fu Hong school in 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.
In 2013 the D - Class of 2011 has both enjoyed a visit from both vice-principal, teachers and students from Zheda Fu Hong school and has travelled to China where they were able to practice their a-level language, Chinese.
Some of the D-class`work on the Global Citizenship Programme can be seen on their webpage her.
