SHANGHAI – Inter Campus are launching a new programme in Shanghai in partnership with the Department of Education and the Shanghai Jin Ding School in Pu tuo, represented by head teacher Wang Zhihua.
The school is attended by families who come from remote areas looking for work in the big city. Inter Campus’ project will involve 200 children from the school aged 6-13, along with five educator-coaches.
Inter Campus’ activities and their educational approach will be introduced as a school subject, in line with the recent decision of president Xi Jinping to insert football into compulsory school syllabus by 2017.
After the refresher course run by Inter Campus, the programme was officially unveiled today, 20 March 2015. The contracts were signed after a series of formal speeches. The kids then each received a Nerazzurri shirt and were finally able to play in the resulting tournament.
