Wellesley Middle School Students Raise funds for Chinatown

Chinese Mandarin and Around the World Students, Staff and Parents
From Wellesley Middle School

Boston, MA. – More than 40 students from Wellesley Middle School visited Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) on May 24th during a Chinatown field trip. As part of the Chinese Mandarin and Around the World program, students visited Chinatown and toured the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center. Wellesley students joined BCNC’s pre-school children in their classroom activities and presented a check of $400 to support children’s learning activities.  Students and parents raised funds in school, during a Chinese New Year fundraiser.
This is the 5th year for Wellesley Middle School to visit and raise funds for BCNC, organized by teacher Min Zhou.  “I am grateful for this learning experience for our Chinese classes. I hope they now realize Boston Chinatown is a living community with long history and rich culture; not only a place to go for food and grocery. It is especially meaningful to visit Chinatown in this month; Asian Pacific American Heritage Month”, said Min Zhou, Chinese Mandarin and Around the World Teacher.

40餘名衛斯理中學學生在5月24日時到波士頓華埠實地勘查,並參觀波士頓華埠社區中心。作為中文及環繞世界項目的一部分,學生們到波士頓華埠社區中心,踏進學前兒童班,和他們一起玩遊戲,還送出一張400元支票,以支持波士頓華埠社區中心的兒童學習活動。
該校學生和家長是在學校舉辦慶祝農曆新年活動時,籌募來這款項。
今年是衛斯理中學在該校中文及環繞世界項目老師周敏(譯音,Min Zhou)率領下,第五年到波士頓華埠社區中心參訪,並致贈善款。她說,我很感恩我們的中文班有這學習機會。我希望他們現在能夠了解波士頓華埠是一個活生生的社區,有悠久歷史,豐富文化,並不只是一個吃飯,買雜貨的地方。在五月這個亞美傳統月的月分來華埠參觀特別有意義,
