The Shanghai trip is being undertaken by 90 Transition Year (TY) students and was organised by University College Cork (UCC) and Shanghai University.

It will see the largest-ever delegation of TY students from 32 schools across Ireland spend two-weeks immersed in Chinese culture. The four selected TY students from Our Lady’s are Megan Delaney, Claire Maher, Eoghan Kelly and Ciarán Shanahan.

The Easter Camp programme to Shanghai runs from March 22nd to April 4th. The trip, which is sponsored by the Headquarters of the Confucius Institute (Hanban) in Beijing, will include sessions to discuss relations between Ireland and China. While in Shanghai, the students will attend language classes, and learn about practical martial arts, paper cuttings, and calligraphy. They will also get to visit Shanghai and the neighbouring cities of Suzhou and Hangzhou.

Between two and five students who are studying the Chinese Culture and Language module as part of TY are travelling from each selected school. They will be accompanied by Professor Fan Hong, Professor Mary Ruane, Mr Yongbin Xia and tutors from the UCC Confucius Institute, teachers from some Irish schools, as well as teachers from Shanghai University.
