Three former St Bart’s students ,who left school in the summer after completing their A Levels, are spending three months of their gap year working in the Kindergarten of the Aurora Educational Group in Shanghai. Jack Caine, Jamie Bevan and Katie Crooks Smith arrived in China at the end of September. They have spent some time acclimatising and sight seeing and reported they’ve been to Jing’ an Temple and Yu Yuan Garden Tea House. Their first week of work was very rewarding and the teachers have been very welcoming. They have spent time playing with the children, observing the teachers, noting techniques and participating in the lessons. We will be publicising their news as they keep us updated on this fantastic experience.
