Blair Welcomes Beijing Sister School Visitors

A delegation of over 30 students and staff from Blair High School’s sister school in China, Beijing 161 High School, visited Blair on Thursday, January 23.

Each of the visiting students had their photo taken and a Blair student ID card made for them, and the group also experienced Ms. Scheckel’s High School Choir class. Blair ASB student hosts then had the Beijing students accompany them to their 3rd period classes, after which the students toured Ms. Wallace’s Culinary Arts and Hospitality Academy classroom.

Thank you to students, staff and parent volunteers for giving Blair High School’s visitors a great Viking welcome, including hosting the Beijing 161 teachers in the Family Resource Center while the students went to class. Blair is also grateful to the Pasadena Sister Cities Committee for facilitating these visits each year.
