Chinese students spend ten weeks at TDA

In April 2016 we welcomed ten Y7 students from the Suzhou Foreign Language School in the Jiangsu Province, China for a ten week international exchange.

For the duration of their visit the Chinese students were paired up with a Y7 TDA buddy to enhance their experience in an English school. The visiting students fully adopted the TDA lifestyle, attending lessons with their buddy to improve their language skills and learn about the culture of the British education system.

Part way through the exchange the Head Teacher from Suzhou Foreign Language School visited TDA to meet with our Principal at the time, Julie Taylor and Hilary Faulkner, Assistant Vice Principal for Community and International Work to sign a schools partnership agreement, cementing the international connection.
