Photo Gallery - District welcomes Chinese delegation
Bethlehem had some special guests in attendance at its varsity boys basketball game versus Shenendehowa last week: a delegation of 29 students and eight administrators from Tianjin High School 41 in China.
The delegation is being hosted by Tech Valley High, Capital Region BOCES and Questar III BOCES and is on a week-long visit to schools in the Capital Region. Tianjin 41 is considered one of the premier schools in China. Last year, TVHS entered into a partnership with the school through which it hosts teachers.
At the game, Superintendent Dr. Thomas Douglas, along with BCHS Assistant Principal Scott Landry and Dean Marna Meltzer, presented the delegation with BCHS tee shirts, pins and stickers.
“We thank the members of Tianjin 41 for choosing to visit us during their brief stay,” said Superintendent Douglas. “It is a mission of the Bethlehem Central School District to provide access for our students to a global classroom and prepare them for international opportunities. Their visit with us here tonight reminds us of how important that mission is.”
