SCHOOL, STAFF AND STUDENTS
Opened in September 2003, Shengli New Zealand school runs a programme for middle-school students(year6 to 12) wishing to go on to further study in western countries. The students’ day is divided between studying Chinese subjects with Chinese teachers, and English with a native speaker.
As a growing school, there are about 220 students. The English Department currently has two foreign teachers and three Chinese English teachers. We enjoy spacious office surroundings, well equipped with individual Internet access and a library of imported ESOL resources.
The management and staff are supportive, and working and living conditions are well above average. Mutual cooperation is highly valued in the school, and this contributes to a harmonious cross-cultural environment.
Dongying is located in Shandong province, a 3-hour drive inland from Qingdao. Dongying and its several outlying suburbs have a combined population of about 2 million. Dongying is a small, but comparatively wealthy city. In the 1950’s, oil was found in surrounding areas: thus it has become the center of Shengli Oilfield.
The city center is compact, and the main shopping area covers a few blocks reached conveniently by taxi, pedicab or foot. Shopping is good. You can buy everything you need in local department stores, and while the range of international products is fairly limited , the variety and availability of food and produce is astounding.
Dongying’s entertainment options are not inexhaustible. It is, however, friendly, and the international wage affords a high quality of life here.
