Chinese Schools Visit Bradfields Academy | February 2024

Yesterday, we were proud to welcome students and staff from five Chinese schools, as part of Fortis Trust’s partnership with the Hebei International School Partnership!
Our visitors presented our Principal, the Trust CEO and Ms Bowen with gifts, as well as each school presented us with bespoke gifts. We then had the opportunity to present gifts to the staff and students individually.
The day was filled with a range of experiences, where our guests went to a wide variety of lessons; including English, maths, gardening, catering and RE. They also had the opportunity to visit our Chinese New Year experience, where they could play games and try a range of food and drink, created by Food2Eat.
In the afternoon, we provided our guests with a Chinese-inspired lunch (Chinese Chicken Rice, Vegetable Chow Mein, Stir Fry Oriental Vegetables, and Apple Fortune Cake). After lunch, the students took part in a football match and finished the day with a game of Bench Ball!
We want to thank our wonderful guests for visiting our school! In their feedback, they said that they “were extremely impressed with our students, how patient and friendly the staff were and how emotionally calm the school felt”.
