The Cream of China Tea!


Youngsters on a cultural exchange from China will be creating their own Afternoon Tea Party on Friday.

This is just one of the activities the students from the Dong Lu School of Shanghai Gaoqiao have been participating in since they arrived in the City at the weekend.

On Monday this week, the students were keen to show their skills at Bricklaying and joinery as part of a skills visit to Stoke on Trent College. WorldSkillsUK Tutor Pete Walters explained the various construction skills that students at the college are taught.  Their home town of Shanghai Gaoqiao is modern, with a feel of the Netherlands in its architecture.

Throughout the week the youngsters have experienced a Photographic workshop at the Excel Academy (Part of the College Academies Trust) as well as STEM and Arts and Craft Workshops at the Stoke on Trent 6th form college.

The students will be able to work off the calories of their afternoon tea with sport enrichment activities at Fenton Manor.
