Reed Intermediate School Interim Principal Jay Smith spoke during an assembly at his school on Wednesday, February 20, held to welcome a delegation from Liaocheng, China.

A delegation of 31 students and ten educators from Liaocheng, China, were welcomed at Newtown schools during the group’s February 15-24 stay.

While in Newtown the delegation, from multiple schools in Liaocheng that are sister schools through the Newtown International Center for Education (NICE), visited schools and stayed with host families. The delegates also visited local sites, including Yale University in New Haven and New York City.

Part of the delegation’s visit was spent readying a delegation of Newtown students and educators who will travel to China in April.

The delegation visited Newtown High School, Newtown Middle School, and Reed Intermediate School during its stay in town. Each school welcomed the group with ceremonies.
