We are now booked in to our second hotel and awaiting departure from the hotel to see what day 5 has in store. Below are some pictures of day 4. Please re-visit soon.

1, Temple of Heaven Gardens. The students (and staff) enjoyed and got involved with the activities.

China – Day 3

Happy Sunday to you all in Jersey. We have had another fantastic day in Sunny Beijing. The sun has been shining and we have been reliably informed by our tour rep that this is the first time the sun has been seen in Beijing this year! We have all packed and ready to move on to Xian tomorrow but today we saw the incredible sights of:

1. Great Wall of China

Too Much Punch For Judy

Today Hautlieu was entertained by the fresh new local theatre company Love Theatre.
The group, comprised of previous Hautlieu students and directed by former Hautlieu teacher Michelle Smith, performed Too Much Punch For Judy, a play based on true stories and the dangers of drink driving.
After their performance the group held workshops to teach students about the risk involved behind alcohol.
Hautlieu extends a great thank you to Michelle Smith and her Love Theatre actors.
