CWU Sammamish, Eastside Catholic welcomed 12 Chinese students for pilot exchange program

As part of a pilot student exchange program, 12 students from the Hou Kong International School in Macau, China, traveled to Sammamish for two weeks to take part in Eastside Catholic School’s summer programming.

The exchange was born of the partnership between Central Washington University of Sammamish and the Hou Kong School. The two schools have a partnership with an ongoing teacher exchange program and have plans for future programs for Chinese students at CWU-Sammamish. In January, Sammamish City Council member Ramiro Valderrama facilitated a meeting with CWU-Sammamish, Hou Kong School, Eastside Catholic and the YMCA to discuss different types of partnerships and an exchange program.
