will-millard-peter-martin-at-the-great-wall-of-chinaFormer student, Will Millard, has sent his first report from China.  A pilot project has been launched between St Bart’s and Aurora Educational Group, Shanghai which sees Will taking up a six month post in China to teach English.  He arrived in Beijing last week, at the start of the Chinese New Year.  Will met up with an old school friend, Peter Martin, and they visited The Great Wall of China then attended a Buddhist Spring Festival in the mountains outside Beijing.  The highlight of the evening was watching thousands of fireworks go off over the city at midnight from high up in the mountains.  Look out for more reports from Will over the coming months.
