Do you want to participate in a High School experience of a lifetime? Registration is now open to all SD71 students from grade 9-12 for the Highland Spring Break Cultural Exchange!
Highland Secondary school will launch its second cultural exchange over Spring Break with New Hongqiao High School in Shanghai, China. New Hongqiao is one of the top rated very modern private schools in Shanghai that focuses on English instruction and International graduation. In January 2017 our Comox Valley students participating on the exchange will host their "buddies" from New Hongqiao. The visiting students will be integrated into daily school activities at Highland and local field trips throughout the week they are with us. At Spring Break Highland host family students and Trip Leaders travel to Shanghai China, where they will also participate in school and Chinese cultural activities and field trips around Shanghai for 7-9 days, followed by an exciting 2-3 day stopover in Beijing, before flying home. This two week exciting adventure will include up to 1 week on either side of Spring Break.
