China Day activities and workshops | 中 国 日

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.

With the objective of supporting a golden era in UK-China relations, our aim is to educate the UK school students about China, its culture and its language.

How to organise a China Day 

We suggest schools to select a range of workshops, taking place over the course of a day, and book our instructors to lead the activities. 

Workshops are generally no longer than 50 minutes, with a maximum of five workshops per day per instructor. For example, five workshops can rotate around several groups of students in a day.
