Honourable guests, ladies and gentlemen It’s a pleasure for me to welcome you to Porsgrunn High school. As you probable know my to assistant headmasters and myself visited Hubei just a couple of months ago. We were so well received and we enjoyed the stay in your beautiful province. Especially did we find the area around Enchi with the Grand Canyon with very spectacular mountain formations and colours. The amazing mountain- hike , we never forget. Perhaps is that because we ourselves come from a mountainous country. But most of all we enjoyed visiting the Shui Guo Hu High School in Wohan. Last autumn we signed a memorandum of understanding between Shui Guo Hu High School and Porsgrunn High School. Now we have met personally and we had a fine discussion on how we can continue to work together. We talked about exchanging students and teachers, and the headmaster very kindly offered to help us with a teacher if we wanted to introduce Chinese as language to teach to our students. Here at Porsgrunn High School we think that internationalization of education is important. We think that cross-cultural meeting-points will play an important role. Both dialogue and tolerance is important issues when it comes to the reach the ultimate goal, --peace between nations. Finally I would like to present our school`s brochure which will give you all the facts about Porsgrunn High School, and its there in front of you. Then I hope you will have a nice stay in Norway. From what I understand you have a very busy program today. Thank you.
