Pownall Green Primary School was delighted to welcome this week, the Headteacher, a teacher and five children from their sister school in China, Datang 45.
The visit coincided with Pownall’s Diversity Theme Week when each year group learnt about a different country and participated in workshops and presentations celebrating diversity through song and dance.
The visitors were hosted by the two Year 5 classes, who in anticipation of the visit had been learning Mandarin. As well as participating in lessons, the adults and children enjoyed a tea party where they were joined by the Mayor of Stockport who presented the Chinese Headteacher with a framed collage of iconic Stockport landmarks. The week ended with a visit to Bramall Hall and a performance to the school by the Chinese children.
