Oak Hall School Welcomes Chinese Degation
Some long distance relationships don't work out, but one local middle school says its relationship with their Chinese sister school has just grown stronger over the past five years.
Today, Oak Hall School welcomed its sister school from Changzhou, China.
The delegation featured four students and five faculty members from Changzhou Middle School.
During the ceremony, the two groups thanked each other for their hospitality and exchanged gifts.
The partnership between the schools began five years ago.
Through four cross cultural visits -- two to China and two to Gainesville -- both groups say the friendship has blossomed into a close friendship.
The itinerary for the Chinese delegation includes tours of the University of Florida campus and a day trip to St. Augustine.
The delegation will leave Thursday.
