We enjoyed our annual field trips in the Middle and High School with two very different kinds of experiences: Middle School students traveled to Tian Ping Scenic Area in Suzhou while the High School students explored historic Shanghai in a tour of the Shanghai History Museum. In addition to the museum, HS students played games and took photographs that focused their creativity, groupwork and thinking skills.
Tian Ping Hill presented Middle Schoolers and their teachers with a climbing challenge. Not everyone made it to the top of the hill, but all made a great effort. The steep rocky stairs and boulders all the way up made our bodies and minds work hard. After our hard work climbing, we sat together at lunchtime to enjoy each other’s company. This was a lovely day spent outdoors in nature, facing physical challenges and taking in the autumn colors.
