China Trip – Returned

China Trip – Update


We are all now back in beautiful Jersey. Time to catch up on some well-deserved sleep and prepare for school on Monday morning. Students were superb ambassadors for Hautlieu and Jersey and thoroughly enjoyed their time at our sister school Bayi, Beijing.

A special thanks goes to Miss Miorin for organising yet another fantastic trip.

If you would like to continue to look at some of the images taken during our time in China, please see the links below.

China – Homeward bound..

Are we nearly there yet?

We left the hotel in  Beijing at 3.00am China time, 7.00pm Jersey time and most students having approximately 2 hours sleep before departure. To say the students were exhausted is an understatement. Some of the pictures posted below show the level of exhaustion.

The students have been absolutely fantastic on the trip, all worthy ambassadors for Hautlieu and Jersey.

It is now 1.39pm and we are all enjoying a British meal for lunch. No rice to be seen for miles!

See you soon in Jersey. Arrival approximately 5.00pm.

1. Beijing Airport – awaiting departure.

China – Day 8

This morning – we had a lay in! Students were asked to arrive later than normal at the hotel reception – 8.30am! We then made our way back to our sister school BaYi for another fun filed day. Pictures below.

Time seems to have flown. We can not believe that we are now back at the hotel packing for our 2.00am wake-up call to start to make our way back to Jersey. If all goes according to plan, we will see our friends and family in Jersey on Saturday afternoon. The plane from the UK should arrive in Jersey at 5.00pm (approx.). We are very much looking forward to seeing you.
