Today was our last day of teaching Junior 1 and 2 (7th & 8th grade) students for this week. They will be on vacation until next Thursday. Junior 3 (9th grade) students will be begin taking entrance exams for high school tomorrow. The Senior 3 (senior) students wrapped up their university exams today with oral English tests. More students are continuing to head home to wait for the results at the end of the month, which will determine if or where they will go to college in the fall. We wish our Senior 3 friends well. The Senior 1 and 2 students (freshmen/sophomore) were arriving back on campus after their break.

This evening, we met with the leaders of both schools and took pictures in front of the Friendship Tree, which was planted 2 years ago when the first teacher delegation was here. It is tall and sturdy, like our relationship. We also exchanged gifts between our schools. We received a beautiful Chinese Good Luck Knot for our school from the middle school, and each of us received our own custom tailored Tai Chi suit from the high school. It is the most comfortable piece of clothing we now own!
