LDCSB trip to China

The Fortunate Five

The Fortunate Five

LDCSB has the trip of a lifetime

by Linda Staudt

Linda Staudt, Director of Education at the London District Catholic School Board, recently returned from an unforgettable trip to China.

Below is a letter written by Linda, following her trip:


I, along with Principal Ana Fernandes, returned from an experience unparalleled to anything I’ve witnessed in my 31 years as an educator. Through We Are Young II, east met west.

We Are Young is in its second season and is produced for CCTV2, part of the CCTV Group, which is China’s largest broadcaster. The series promotes cross-cultural understanding, personal growth and experiencing life in a whole new way. Five Grade 11 students from Mother Teresa swapped countries, schools and lives with students from China for the popular reality TV series.
