John Willcock students travel to China

Posted on: Wednesday, 14 September 2016 at 10:32:51 AM

Twenty eight John Willcock College and Geraldton Secondary College students have embarked on a fantastic learning experience, a ten day tour of China.

The tour has been two years in the planning. Students will learn about ancient and modern Chinese history by visiting Tiananmen Square and the Great Wall of China, as well as meeting with local Chinese families.

The tour is the third time John Willcock College has organised an overseas trip as part of the Humanities and Social Science program. Most recently, a group of students traveled to France to visit the Western Front and learn Australian and European war history first hand. However, many of the students on this years trip will be travelling overseas for the first time.

John Willcock College year nine student Ashlee Blair said China is her number one destination.
“I have always wanted to go to China and see the wall,” she said.

“I am most looking forward too seeing the Terracotta Warriors they look so intriguing they are life size warriors and everyone is different.”

Three John Willcock College staff will travel with the party including Principal Julie Campbell.

“The students are selected to attend the tour based on their engagement and commitment to the HASS curriculum,” she said.

“The students spend part of the year preparing for the tour and in past years, have learned language and culture in preparation,”

“It is also a great opportunity to travel with some of our past students”.
