13 School of the Future high school students traveled to China over spring break. Students explored Beijing, Xi’An, Shanghai, and Hong Kong! Students visited Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City (where some met Heidi Klum!), the Great Wall of China, the Temple of Heaven Park, the Terra-Cotta army, Shanghai World Financial center, Aberdeen Fishing Village, Repulse Bay, Victoria Peak, and Lantau Island among many other places. They also enjoyed the local cuisine, a Kung Fu and acrobatics show, took a bike ride on the Ancient City wall in Xi’an, a dragon boat ride, took a Tai Chi class, and a rickshaw ride. It was a wonderful experience of the unique culture and history of China and Hong Kong. Here are some great photos from the trip.
SOF students (and the cast!) on the stage of the Vonnegut play Happy Birthday, Wanda June from Friday, April 13th. They were super enthusiastic, completely engaged and moved by the whole production.
