PEETO College - Multi Country and Cultural Visits

As previous tours were well received, PEETO English Language College Christchurch tutor, Keylene brought 12 students on 28 June to the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery Christchurch as BLIA member Frida Dai gave them a tour. PEETO specialises in the teaching of English for Speakers of Other Languages and literacy acquisition programmes which also cater for adults.

The visitors visited the oil painting exhibition for Zijian Li and showed great interest in the Chinese rural life scene shown in the artworks. Besides that, they are amazed by the pottery art by Averil with its unique shape and colour of the flowers.

Keylene whom visited the Fo Guang Yuan Art Gallery Christchurch for a few times, enjoyed the atmosphere and felt delightful leading the students here today. Chinese students felt happy first time visiting the art gallery and were surprise to have a solemn place down south of the world. One student from South Africa which is also a first time visitor felt the place is artistic and comfortable. In the end, BLIA members invited all the teachers and students to participate in other common activities into the temple.
