Cultural Engagement through China Day

Our China Day initiative supports schools in introducing students to Chinese language and culture through a dynamic range of activities and workshop packages. Designed for both primary and secondary schools, China Day serves as an engaging and educational way to enhance extra-curricular offerings with a unique focus on Chinese culture.


Our mission is to broaden UK students' understanding and appreciation of Chinese culture and language, providing an immersive experience that goes beyond the classroom.
