In the morning of July 23, 2012, 5 teachers of Hampton School Mauritius led 40 students to the Chinese Cultural Centre for a visit, and they were warmly received by the staff of CCC. Under the guidance of staff, Li Lili and volunteer teacher, Tang Peibin, the teachers and students visited the lobby, the library, the Chinese classrooms, the dancing rooms, the Wushu classrooms, the exhibition hall and the multifunction room.

As soon as the students entered the lobby, they greeted the staff in Chinese. Then, Tang Peibin gave a brief introduction of the Chinese culture to the teachers and the students. They observed the five characters engraved on the floor: Gold, Wood, Water, Fire, Earth. The teachers and the students were taught how to identify hieroglyph characters. They were given explanations about the decorations that were full of Chinese culture elements. Then, the round-shape lobby, which is like an echo-wall was also introduced to the teachers and students. These new things excited the interest of the teachers and the students.

Afterwards, they were taught to write Chinese characters in the library and to greet in Chinese in the Chinese classroom. They also demonstrated Sega dance in the dancing room and finally they were taught Gongfu by Master Zhang Jianyong in the Wushu classroom. Master Zhang taught the students the hold-fist salute, then some basic moves and ended with Five-step fist. The practices that Master Zhang conducted allowed the students to experience the joy of learning martial arts. During the practices, they were very excited and had a very good time together. After the Wushu class, they went to the exhibition hall to have a look at the photo exhibition of The 40th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between China and Mauritius. Then, they moved to the multifunction room to appreciate the photo exhibition of Rebirth - Sichuan's Post-Quake Reconstruction in the Lens of Foreign Photographers. Last but not least, the students happily sang a Chinese song under the guidance of teacher Tang.

The teacher that accompanied the students expressed their joy in visiting the Chinese Cultural Centre. They had not only experienced speaking Chinese, writing Chinese characters, practising Gongfu, but they had also enjoyed the photo exhibitions. The visit was rich in content and it allowed the students to learn a great deal. They had some perceptual insights about Chinese culture and the students enjoyed very much this kind of education blended with recreations. The teachers said that the visit was a very fruitful one and expressed their gratitude towards the Chinese Cultural Centre's efforts.
