The Chinese government funded an 11 day trip for 24 students from Lincoln High School and Steilacoom High School which included visiting the Great Wall of China, learning Tai-Chi, performing on China Central Television (CCTV) and visiting schools to connect with Chinese students. Junior Luke Kelly said his favorite part was, “learning softball with the students at Shenzhen High School,” and senior Yuti Thakor agreed adding on “and getting their WeChats,” which is an app that you can message, post and pay on.
