Twelve pupils from Shanghai high schools visiting Dunedin as
part of the two cities' sister-city relationship were shown
around Otago Polytechnic yesterday.
Being shown around by the polytechnic's international
marketing manager, Susie Scott (foreground), are (front row,
from left) English teacher Julia Cao, Kelin Huang (15), Wen
Zheng (16), Rachel Wang (16), Jane Zhang (15), Lily Wang (16)
and Cathy Li (16) and (back row, from left) Jamal Shen (16),
Tim Wu (16), Alan Luo (16), Jacky Huang (16), Nicholas Zhou
(17) and Sky Huang (17).
Polytechnic director of internationalisation Marc Doesburg
said the trip was part of Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull's Shanghai
sister-city education scholarship programme.
It was hoped some of the pupils would come back and study at
one of Dunedin's tertiary institutions, but the visit was
also about an exchange of cultures, with Dunedin students
also having the opportunity to visit Shanghai, Mr Doesburg
