Beijing Bayi School Students Return

93 students from Bayi School in Beijing visited Batterie Lothringen on Wednesday and Thursday. Paul Burnal and Matthew Costard were their guides, ably assisted by Matthew’s wife Sandra and her friend Stephanie Simmons, who acted as interpreters.

This is the second year that the CIOS has been involved with this visiting school programme organised by Hautlieu School (with the support of the Chief Minister), and it was an excellent opportunity to showcase the Island’s unique history as well as the Society’s preservation activities.

As with last year’s visit, there was keen media interest, with interviews by Channel TV and Radio Jersey.
