We support school in understanding Chinese language and culture through a range of different activities including workshop packages like "China Day" Activity for both primary schools and secondary schools.

CI children participating in China Day activities

China-themed activities at school is probably the easiest way to engage students and to raise awareness of Chinese culture through enhanced extra-curricular provision, providing a unique experience for students.

Our aim is to educate the UK school students about China, its' culture and its' language.

How to organise a China Day 

Select a range of activities/workshops from our list, arrange a day for them to be taken place over the course of a day or two, and book our instructors to lead the activities. 

Workshops are normally about 50 minutes long, with a maximum of five workshops per day per instructor. For example, five workshops can be selected and rotated around five groups of students in a day.
