Confucius Classroom further strengthens links with China

A Manx school has become the first in the crown dependencies to open a Confucius Classroom.

Ballakermeen High School received the recognition from Hanban, the Chinese National Office for Teaching Chinese as a Foreign Language.

It's been granted the status because of the school's twinning with Number 1 School in China's Hanan Province.

The aim of the scheme is to encourage students to learn Chinese and find out more about the country's culture.

The classroom was formally opened on Monday morning by the Minister Counsellor for Education of the Chinese Embassy in London, Mr Shen Yang, and Chief Minister Bell.
