Hong Kong Exchange

On Friday, 1 December we were all eager and nervous to meet our Hong Kong exchanges as time had flew by so quickly and their arrival day had already arrived! Unfortunately, they were held back in immigration at the airport for a very long time but as soon as they got off the coach, there was a very loving and bright atmosphere. The exchanges were full of welcoming smiles even though they must have had a very long day of travelling. My exchange, was full of energy from day one and I was excited to get to know her better from this exchange.

During the weekend, we had time with our exchanges and I introduced her to my friends and gave her a quick tour around Maidstone Town Centre. My friend, our exchanges and I, went to the arcade and taught them how to play pool and had fun taking pictures in the photo booth! Both of our exchanges love desserts so we took them to Creams with some other friends and had a great time getting to know one another, talking about different cultures as well as our hobbies.

On Monday, the exchanges came to school with us.  Luckily for them they were visiting during RAG week. They participated in our RAG week non-uniform days and even wore pyjamas with us!! The exchanges were able to see what school was like in England by going to their hosts classes and had a business workshop with Mrs Marshall to try it themselves. Later that evening, the hosts and exchanges went to the RAG dance show and we were absolutely astonished by the performances and enjoyed a great evening.

Throughout the week, the exchanges visited local areas such as the Canterbury Cathedral and Leeds Castle and they told us that it was very different to Hong Kong as the buildings were much shorter than their usual skyscrapers as well as it having beautiful architecture.

Tuesday evening, everyone went to see Cinderella in the Hazlitt theatre and it was a new experience for many of us. The exchanges and hosts enjoyed the pantomime as we were able to see a childhood fairy tale come to life.

On Wednesday, everyone went to London to visit the British Museum and Harry Potter World. When we arrived at the British Museum, we had a mini competition of taking selfies which included certain remarkable statues or monuments. Everyone enjoyed this as we were able to have fun as well as looking at extraordinary artefacts; especially the mummy. After the museum we went to Harry Potter World, the studio where the films were made. It was intriguing to see the props and equipment used for the production of the films. The exchanges took many photographs of the Warner Brothers Studios as the work done for Harry Potter is very detailed and beautiful.

On Saturday, we had another day out to London with everyone. Even though it was extremely cold we had a great time. We went on an Open Top Bus Tour which enabled us to see the famous tourist spots around London such as Buckingham Palace and the London Bridge. Afterwards, we went around Convent Garden to do some shopping for souvenirs. Finally, we went on a boat ride on the River Thames where we able to see a different view of London, as well as warming up by sitting inside!

On Sunday evening, my family and I decided to cook my exchange an early Christmas dinner, as she had never tried it in Hong Kong. While trying the British food and learning about our culture, she taught us some Cantonese phrases and told us about the culture in Hong Kong!

Monday was final day, the day that they were returning back to Hong Kong. The exchanges showed us a presentation they had prepared.  We were extremely impressed by the media and how well everyone presented. They had also gifted us a few things from Hong Kong and given us Christmas letters with heart-warming messages inside. We said our final good byes and we are excited to see them again in April 2018!
