Tshwane South College, on Monday, hosted the “charm of harmony: the encounter with rainbow cultural exchange” in partnership with the Zhejiang University from China. Students of Tshwane South college were entertained, in Pretoria, by their Chinese counterparts who shared their music, culture and language. The Tshwane hall was packed to capacity with young people interacting and sharing different aspects of their cultures.
At the same time, Tshwane South College students were able to perform for their fellow counterparts and the college received an opportunity to be the first high institution to host the event in Gauteng.
Gauteng News spoke to Dr. Wenhong Dai from the Confucious Classroom at the Chinese and international Education Exchange Center. “Today is our first day to host this exciting performance by Chinese students and we aim to exchange information and culture with South Africans. As a company we recruited 70 people around South Africa who can teach English to Chinese school children. We aim to work with the college and have students who can obtain scholarships to study in China”, he says.
Council Chairperson of Tshwane College Msebenzi Skhosana said, “We are very excited about this opportunity and as Tshwane South College we welcome the Zhejiang University. This is a very significant day for us that has seen the college being uplifted as we are dealing with policy and governance issues today. We have 42 students who went to study abroad in May this year and this encourages other students to work hard and study further”, said Skhosana.
