Chinese teachers visit Bedford

5 Chinese headteachers are in Bedford Borough this week, to find out more about British life and teaching.

The visit - which runs up until Friday - is being funded by the British Council, and follows a trip to Zhengzhou in China in May last year, by British representatives. During that visit a Memorandum of Agreement was reached to develop, "global citizenships within our schools through exchange visits and joint curriculum learning."

There are nine schools involved in the venture, which are working on projects to promote the environment, recycling, sport, music, dance and history.

The week will see the visiting representatives take part in events which outline British culture. They'll visit six lower schools, meet the Mayor and attend a talk on Bedford's history, which will be delivered via translators.
