We are very sad to bid our friend Shirley farewell. In the four weeks she was here we so enjoyed getting to know her. She settled in to our class so quickly and has been a friendly, sensible, happy and hard working student. Her mum came in on Shirley's last day to give us a talk about their lives in China. Shirley has an older brother and her mum is a lawyer. Her dad is a businessman and they live in a very modern city called Nanning in the south of China. It was fascinating to see the exquisite buildings and bridges, the parks and beautiful river setting. We all wrote lovely messages to Shirley and gave her some gifts to remember us by. We wish Shirley every success and happiness for her future.
