A visit of Eastern promise

A SHANGHAI surprise is in store for sixth form pupils in Leeds when a group of Chinese students arrive later this month.

Following a successful visit to Shanghai in December 2004 by head of geography at St Mary’s, Menston, Helen Keelan-Edwards, a return visit by eight Chinese students and two staff has been organised.

The students, who are aged between 16-18, are travelling from ShiXi High School in Shanghai and will stay in England for 11 days, spending the majority of their time at St Mary’s.

While in Leeds the students will participate in lessons and perform traditional Chinese dance.
