Spring Gully PS – Team China

Just another global2.vic.edu.au site


Hiya!3 days till we leave. Im like: “Lol! Seeya Charlie! Don’t expect any presents!” I am not nervous anymore. Just totes exciteamondo!

I am so unbearably tired. Last night was awesome when we went to the circus. My favourite act was when these four girls were doing gymnastics on top of each other. I am really excited to go to Suzhou, and am equally excited about coming home…

Science and Technology Centre, Shanghai

10 days to go and I am elated and nervous. Partly because of the fear of the unknown. I am excited about meeting new friends in China and going to the circus on the Sunday night, and within the limit of days until the 5:30 departure to the Tullamarine airport, I will wait anxiously and excitedly at home, staring at my neatly packed suitcase sitting solemnly on my bedroom floor.

    Hi Darling,
    Thanks for your lovely email! So sorry we missed your Skype call – I wasn’t expecting one this morning.
    Charlie and I watched your plane take off on the Flightradar app and I tracked it all the way until you landed! It was great to know where you were at different times of the day.
    Have an amazing day today and Charlie and I can’t wait to hear all about it.
    Lots of love to you Harry, Mum xo❤️

    Well done, Harry! What an amazing experience to be in the country with the world’s greatest population. Maybe you will also learn something of China’s ancient culture, stretching back more than 5000 years.

    Did you go on the Maglev train from the airport? We need one of those here in Melbourne.

    Keep safe and happy.

    Hi Harry,
    It was great to get your Skype call tonight. Charlie and I lived hearing all about your flight, your hotel, the Pearl Tower, the weather, what you ate and that you’ve bought us PRESENTS already!!!
    I hope you get a long and restful sleep tonight – you were exhausted before dinner tonight.
    Have another great day tomorrow. Much love from Mum XO

    Hi Harry it’s lily ,
    Hope your having a great time in china, just want to know a few things, what is the atmosphere like? I would imagine that it would be pretty chaotic being the country with the biggest population in the world. One more question, where are you staying and what is it like?
    Love your more favourite cousin from Adelaide lily (: xoxo
