Chinese visitors experience seaside for first time during Burnham visit

A group of Chinese students made a special visit to Burnham-On-Sea this week when they experienced the seaside for the first time.

The students from China and Hong Kong - who are studying in Wells - were invited to visit Churchfield School in Highbridge to help the pupils with their studies of China.

"The group gave us a superb presentation and taught the children in Year 3 how to say some words in Chinese," teacher Rosie Clements told

"They also taught them calligraphy and played chopstick games - and great fun was had by adults and children alike!"

"Afterwards, the students went to the beach in Burnham which, for some, was their first ever trip to the seaside."
