Nankai Middle School

Tuesday, a group of students from Nankai Middle School in Chongqing came to visit CISC as part of their exchange program with Chief Sealth High School in West Seattle.

They learned about the local Chinese community, immigration to the Seattle area, and services provided to immigrant families.They also had a chance to visit with the seniors at Sunshine Garden and were delighted to find that one of the members is originally from Chongqing, though she hasn't been back in 50+ years!

What a great time they all had chatting in local Chongqing dialect while the rest of us tried to make sense of what they were saying!
