Partnership agreements could be implemented during the recent Chinese visit with no less than five private, as well as state institutions from Shanghai and Shenzhen. Other forms of cooperation are under discussion. For our own learning partners, this means facilitating exchange programs with these two booming cities. On the other hand, SBW IS Neustadt, SBW IS Ruhr, SBW ISKK and NET are pleased with the expressed interest of the schools themselves to send students to Germany and Switzerland. First concrete inquiries came during the visit for a combination of sport, boarding school and IGSCE / Diploma program for golfers, hockey players as well as triathletes at our location in Kreuzlingen. The race has started, with the meticulous preparation over the last few months bearing fruit. In particular very interesting partnership models are arising for our SBW International School in Neustadt.
