A warm welcome to our new Chinese teacher, Mrs Wan Qiong, who arrived in Derry at the beginning of September. And welcome back also to Mrs Xu Honge. We are delighted to see you in St Columb’s College and look forward to working with you in the new school year!
Both Mrs Wan and Mrs Xu come from Huangshi in Hubei province around 100 kilometres from the city of Wuhan in central China.
At home, both colleagues teach English at Hubei Province Normal University. After intensive training and induction they are now fully qualified to teach Mandarin Chinese here in Derry.
