Farewell to Sidwell Friends Group

Linden Centre’s Education Annex Says Farewell to Sidwell Friends Group

After a semester of study on our Xizhou Education Annex, the first group of Sidwell students left Yunnan this past weekend.  Their innovative, annual program, one of the first of its kind in rural China, gave high school juniors and seniors a chance to complete all their regular coursework while living in our historically protected village.  Students supplemented their classes with an extensive community outreach project.  These projects will soon appear on the Linden Centre’s and Sidwell Friends’ websites.
