China Trip

Kelvin students recently travelled to Beijing, Hong Kong and Macau over Spring Break 2017.  The students, from grades 10 through 12, made the journey to the "Middle Kingdom" as part of the Asia Pacific Studies program.  Former Vice-Principal Joyce Wong led the China-Trippers, along with Teacher Chaperones M. Sokalski and Ms. Geysel.  Students visited a local high school, practiced T'ai Ch'i and visited such iconic sites as Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall of China and the cities of Hong Kong and Macau.  In addition, they took part in a Kung Fu demonstration, visited with giant pandas, enjoyed a meal of dumplings in a traditional Hu Tong home and climbed to a hill top Buddhist monastery.  The journey was two years in the planning, with students researching and presenting on each of the sites visited, and learning mandarin with the help of Kelvin IB student, Grace M.  Eight of the fifteen China Trippers have been or are currently enrolled in one of Kelvin's 4 Asia Pacific courses.
