On September 3rd , Mr. Chris Findley, Executive Dean of Professional Studies, Adelaide University, Australia, and Mr. Keith Thomas, CEO of Adelaide Rugby Club, Mr. Andrew Hunter, General Manager of China Affairs, and Ms. Xu, Executive Cooperative Manager of China Affairs, visited our school. Mr. Chen Libo, Executive Director and CEO of Jincheng Holding Group, Mr. Ren Jianhua, President of Entel, and Mr. Weng Chen Ming, Director of International Department of Entel warmly welcome the visiting delegation.
The visiting delegation guests held talks with the school leaders and the leaders of Jincheng Group. Mr. Chen Libo, Executive Director and CEO of Jincheng Group, chaired the talks. President Ren Jianhua warmly welcomed the visiting delegation on behalf of the school. Then he briefly introduced the international programs, and expressed the expectation of the students of Entel to open the course of Australian Rugby. Mr. Keith Thomas, CEO of Adelaide Australian Rugby Club, said that he was honored to visit Entel. Rugby events are conducive to bringing students closer to Australia, familiarizing themselves with Australian culture, and making it easier for overseas students to adapt to Australian social life faster. The President and Mr. Findley, Executive Dean of the Professional Department of Adelaide University, had an in-depth exchange on how to integrate the specific requirements of rugby courses and channels for studying abroad.
During the talks, Mr. Findley briefly introduced the award of Adelaide University, the mode of cooperation between Adelaide University and local senior high schools, and how Adelaide University helped senior high school students achieve identity transition. He also said that he would strive to provide a "one-stop service" for Chinese students, especially those from Entel, from high school to university and then to employment. Subsequently, Andrew Hunter, General Manager of China Affairs of Adelaide Australian Rugby Club, introduced in detail how to link rugby with student courses so as to promote the development of academic and cultural integration through sports.
The atmosphere of the talks was harmonious and active, and the two sides reached preliminary consensus on cooperation matters. At the end of the talks, the two sides exchanged gifts as a souvenir. Mr. Keith Thomas, CEO of Adelaide Australian Rugby Club, presented Rugby with the signature of an Entel star. He hoped that the cooperation between the two sides would be pleasant. After the talks, the delegation visited the campus of Entel under the leadership of Mr. Weng Chen-ming, Director of the International Department.
The visit of Adelaide University and Rugby Club in Australia laid the foundation for friendly cooperation between Entel and Australia. We look forward to more international courses blooming on the beautiful campus of Entel.
