HOSTING A CHINESE STUDENT

"Differences can only enrich our experience, and the absence of difference impoverishes us." ~ Martha Vancebury and Sylvia W. Silverman

With the objective of offering a global education for all of our students, Shrewsbury Public Schools is excited to announce that we will once again be welcoming students from China to Sherwood Middle School in March. Twenty five (25) students from Beijing Elementary School – Daxing Branch will be spending 10 days in Shrewsbury during their visit to the United States.  

As families of Sherwood, we invite you to welcome a Chinese student into your home during their brief visit to our country. 

Global citizenship education provides the understanding, skills, and values students need to cooperate in resolving the interconnected challenges of the 21st century. These same educational outcomes prepare students to be successful in the workplace of the 21st century as well. ~ United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

Hosting a visiting student is a wonderful opportunity to truly embrace the idea of global citizenship. You will be helping a student learn firsthand some of what it’s like to live in the United States. It’s also a chance for your family to learn some things about the Chinese culture and establish a global connection that can possibly extend beyond just this visit.
