Our annual China Day is a highly anticipated event in the school calendar for Year 7 students, who enjoy a day of China-themed activities before leaving school for the summer.
As a Confucius Classroom linked with our Business Confucius Institute, HGS is our local hub for the learning of Mandarin language and culture for both students and adults. The China Day activities for year 7 students aim to open their eyes to a completely different culture, and show them what they can learn if they choose to take Mandarin classes when they come back in Year 8.
The majority of the workshops are run by Business Confucius Institute staff and volunteers, and include language, calligraphy, painting, games, and much more!

This event is only open to Harrogate Grammar School year 7 students, and volunteer recruitment has now closed.
