Aloha From Fuzhou, Fujian, China!

A special message and update from Sacred Hearts Academy Head of School, Betty White, as she travels abroad with eight Academy "Trimble Scholars" guided by longtime Academy friends, Sonia & Gordon Trimble, and Noe Gunderson Oliver, '96, on a cultural exchange with students attending Hwa Nan Women's College in Fuzhou, Fujian, China.

"To be here in Fuzhou, Fujian, China, living on Hwa Nan Women's college campus and surrounded by Chinese educators and students, is an incredible experience. Our hosts are so very cordial, kind and hospitable. Our students are like sponges—soaking up every opportunity to learn and enjoy the experience.
For every activity or excursion, our students have a Chinese sister with them. Yesterday, Eden and Kira were interviewed by a cameraman about their experience so far, and they related how safe the Chinese Sisters made them feel. Later that day we gathered on the athletic field for games led by our hosts. Incredible —the same games I recall playing as a child, thousands of miles from China.  
Today’s schedule is packed—mountain climbing, having a vegetarian lunch prepared by monks, and attending a formal dinner in honor and memory of Bob Trimble, the late father of Gordon Trimble. We have experianced so much in the short time we have been here already; and are excited for the days ahead! We hope everyone had an enjoyable Fall Break and we look forward to sharing in our expereince with you all when we return home!" - Betty White, Sacred Hearts Academy Head of School

I do agree with all the ideas you have presented in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post. business to do in singapore
