Oxley Christian College has welcomed its 2014 International Week from 28th July to 1st August 2014. The visit of Beijing No. 57 High School’s four teachers and 15 students has added even more colour and it is our privilege to have them with us for this week.
At the International Week assembly on monday, both students from our school and Beijing No. 57 High School presented some fascinating performances, which included Beijing Opera, Taiji, Chinese songs, dance, and German poetry reciting. Our two Year 4 classes sang a beautiful song in Chinese called “May God Bless you”, and received much applause. Some international students showed their talents by singing Chinese songs, playing the piano and guitar.
During this week, there will be both Senior School and Junior School International Chapels on Tuesday and Thursday respectively. The International Food Fair will be on Thursday for all staff and students. Friday will be the international costume dress-up day when Junior School International Costume Parade will be held from 8:50 to 9:20am on the upper basketball court. The Staff and students of Beijing No. 57 High School will enjoy an excursion to Healesville Sanctuary, join in for different class activities, and view some of our many electives during this week.
The Year 11 International Dinner on Friday night will conclude this exciting International Week at Oxley Christian College.
