Story

This year we sent a group of International Ambassadors on a cultural exchange visit to Youfu Primary School in Nanjing, China to represent Limehurst and the local community, a once in a lifetime opportunity for children from disadvantaged backgrounds. After a rigorous assessment process involving class projects, homework, persuasive writing and delivering presentations, 5 children were selected. Our teachers who visited China alongside the children exchanged teaching ideas and strategies with the teachers that they met over in Nanjing establishing strong educational links. Our aim is to help create and maintain cultural and educational links between our two countries at a local community level. We aim to run this project again in 2018 with a new group of children. The children who return from the exchange trip will share their knowledge in lessons & assemblies with their peers. This will give once in a lifetime educational opportunities which will broaden their minds and be immersed into another culture enhancing global citizen ship. We feel that our international work based on this exchange will contribute towards children becoming more ‘open minded’ about other cultures, giving them a thirst for knowledge about other countries. We aim for the experiences both in & out of school to help them achieve their full potentials, having a lifelong impact.
We have managed to find funding and sponsorship for our exchange partnership in the past, and have partial funding in place for our next planned visit in April 2018. However we are seeking further sponsorship of children to take part in the exchange.
We have had ongoing local media coverage of our exchanges, and intend to keep this press relationship for future visits so any sponsorship or funding that you might be aware of would be credited in media coverage and on ourwebsite/ documentaries
