Chinese Consul General Du visits ISR

Friday, May 17th, 2024

Last Friday, we were once again honored to welcome Chinese Consul General Du to ISR. On this visit, Mr. Du was joined by some of his colleagues including the Head of Division for Bilateral Relations, Mr. Kou, the Head of Division for Internal Affairs, Ms. Shang, the Coordinator for Bilateral Cooperation and Cultural Exchanges, Mr. Wu, and Protocol, Ms. Zhang.

The Diplomatic Team was warmly welcomed to ISR by a group of children from our kindergarten as well as our ISR Management Team. Consul General Du then gave an inspiring Career Talk to our Upper School Students, Staff and select Parents in which he outlined his career as a diplomat. He was then kind enough to answer questions from the interested audience regarding his experiences as a diplomat.

For the second part of the event, our Upper School Students broke off into two smaller groups for a more informal session with the visiting diplomats. Our students were able to ask further questions about possible careers in diplomacy and enjoyed the informative discussion.

We wish to thank our honored guests, Chinese General Consul Du, Ms. Shang, Mr. Kou, Mr. Wu, and Ms. Zhang for visiting us and taking the time to discuss careers in diplomacy with our students and guests. We would also like to thank our Chinese Community Representative, Ms. Hofmann, for publicizing and attending the event. It was a wonderful success with our students who are now excited about the possibility of a career in diplomacy!
