Ten students and one teacher from the Nan’ao school system in Guangzhou are visiting for the week.

Exchange students with their New Palestine host families

These students are attending New Palestine Intermediate and New Palestine Junior High each day, receiving instruction from our teachers and sitting in classes with our students. They use Google Translate to interact with their American counterparts.

The students have also had opportunities to experience American culture, including attending an Indiana Pacers game, visiting an apple orchard, and experiencing the Halloween holiday by trick-or-treating with their “host siblings.”

Southern Hancock has a sister school in China in the Zhejiang Province, near Shanghai. Administrators from that school district visited CSCSHC last year. NPJH Principal Jim Voelz is among a group of American administrators that have visited Zhejiang’s school district, as well.

We are grateful to provide this unique opportunity and are thankful to our incredible community for agreeing to host these students for the week. Here are a few more photos from our guests’ visit. Welcome to America!
