In roughly 14 hours, 14 staff members from New Oasis partner schools will land in Beijing, China, where they will have two weeks full of learning opportunities, educational fairs and sightseeing.
Leaders from New Oasis partner schools, Battle Ground Academy; Saint Andrew’s School; Ravenscroft School; Providence Day School; Charlotte Country Day School; The Lovett School; The Derryfield School; Charlotte Christian School; Mount Pisgah Christian School; The Episcopal School of Dallas; and Greensboro Day School; and leadership from NCAIS and GISA, will join New Oasis President & CEO, Sean Chen, and Director of Partnerships-U.S. , Kathy Freeman, on a 14-day trip to China, sponsored by New Oasis. The group will travel to Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Chengdu and Xi’an.
The trip presents the opportunity for American teachers and administration to better understand the culture from which their international students come.
The team will arrive at the New Oasis Headquarters in Herndon, Virginia on November 4, and will fly out of Dulles International Airport to Beijing.
Once in China, the team has an itinerary loaded with educational experiences, school visits and chances to learn more about Chinese culture. The trip will feature visits to Chinese landmarks, including the Olympic Bird’s Nest Stadium, the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, and more.
The team will attend educational fairs in Beijing, visiting the schools from which their future students will come. Following its time in Beijing, the team will fly to Chengdu, and then to Xi’an, where they will visit the ancient Xi’an city walls.
While at the schools, New Oasis and partner school staff will give formal presentations about their respective schools to a Chinese audience.
The trip will conclude on November 17, with a visit to Shanghai.
New Oasis will be providing updates throughout the trip on its website and social media accounts.
