Students from China visit Bainbridge Island
July 25, 2012 · Updated 7:45 AM
The Northwest International Student Exchange threw a welcome party for 26 Chinese exchange students from the Chengdu Foreign Language School, their three chaperones and 15 generous Bainbridge Island host families on Saturday afternoon.
Group organizers Robert Weschler and Margot Lee are showing the island’s special guests around Bainbridge, and the teenage students will be on the island until July 30. The community is welcome to visit with them at Hyla Middle School most weekday mornings, or just give them a big Bainbridge Island welcome if you should see them wandering about the island.
There’s been a lot for the group to see already. They visited the Bainbridge Island Historical Society Museum on Tuesday, July 17 and had an afternoon scavenger hunt in downtown Winslow.
Exchange families are planning a farewell party on Sunday, July 29.
