TVHS students visit Chinese destinations and begin classes | Parents & kids
A group of Tech Valley High School students began classes at the Tianjin High School No. 41 in China on Thursday. The group spent time visiting key Chinese destinations and cultural sites.
"We enjoyed an amazing tour of Beijing and we received the warmest welcome ceremony ever at our sister school in Tianjin," said TVHS Teacher Sophia Hsia in a statement. "Everyone was touched. The students were so excited being with the kids at Tianjin and they are ready to learn more about Chinese culture, language and getting to know the people well here."
