To celebrate the coming of Spring in Wuhan, the FNS staff and students visited two local parks for kite-flying, outdoor education activities, and other fun things!
The Pre-K to Grade 6 classes travelled to Yunhu Park, which is about fifteen minutes away from the FNS, and next to Maple Leaf International School – Wuhan (MLIS-W; G10-G12 BC Offshore School). Students enjoyed flying their custom-designed kites, which they spent several days preparing in their daily, 45-minute Mandarin class. Kite-flying has a longstanding tradition in China and is part of our school’s efforts to introduce international students to important aspects of Chinese culture and history.
Meanwhile, the Grade 7 – Grade 9 classes travelled to Moshan Park, located in the famous East Lake region of Wuhan. East Lake is the largest lake in Wuhan and is a famous tourist destination spot. A must-see!
Our students had a blast flying their kites in the park, as well as enjoying the on-site amusement park.
Maple Leaf Foreign Nationals’ School – Wuhan (FNS-Wuhan) enrols international students in Pre-Kindergarten (age 4) through Grade 9. The FNS follows the British Columbia curriculum, as one of many Maple Leaf schools operating in China. The FNS is uniquely situated in Wuhan, China to provide the best of Western educational philosophy mixed with Chinese cultural elements.
