During the exchange, students of Tsinghua University High School enthusiastically joined in classes, which deepened the understanding of education of Hong Kong and helped them better comprehend the similarities and differences between mainland and Hong Kong in terms of culture background, scenery and custom as well as ways of thinking.
One of the exchange students said “the journey to Hong Kong amazes me with their leisure attitude towards study. It makes me realize that besides struggling in endless books, there is another way to learn. One can ‘put full heart into studies, while turning a deaf ear to anything else’, but may also ‘after reading I ride with pleasure, with a sword around anywhere I wander’. We should put aside books for some time and seek knowledge through practice and activities. ”
Teacher and students of Tsinghua University High School also visited many tourist sites such as Golden Bauhinia Square, Tsim Sha Tsui History Museum and Science Museum, and Victoria Harbour, which refreshed the impression of the city and custom of Hong Kong.

The exchange program not only enhanced educational communication and cooperation between schools of mainland and Hong Kong, but also got us prepared for cultivating high-quality students with international horizon and competence.
