Bert Bowes students visit with cohorts from Chinese sister school

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Students at Bert Bowes Middle School got a reciprocal visit from a group of 19 students from Bert Bowes’ sister school in Yangzhong, China last week.

School District 60 superintendent Dave Sloan says that the group of students visited Fort St. John from June 27th to July 2nd. Sloan says that this is the first year that the two schools have set up an agreement. Earlier in the year, a group of Bert Bowes students travelled to China, where they visited the Yangzhong Foreign Language School in Jiangsu province.

District Principal of International Education Brian Campbell says that after their arrival on Tuesday evening, the group of students spent Wednesday together with their Bert Bowes cohorts at the middle school, and also played disc golf in Toboggan Hill Park. On Thursday and Friday, the group from both schools travelled to Gwillim Lake where they camped overnight. They also travelled to Tumbler Ridge, where they visited the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery at the Tumbler Ridge museum.

Campbell says that the group also spent the day with the billet families on Canada Day, and also visited a local ranch to see a rodeo demonstration on Sunday before leaving in the evening.
