Representatives from the Chinese embassy in the UK visited Uppingham School on Thursday, attending the unv
eiling ceremony for a paving stone dedicated to Charles Cao Quin, senior advisor on China-UK partnerships at the school.
Over the past years, Charles Cao Quin of the Beijing Conservatory has worked closely with Uppingham
School, an English boarding school famed for its rich tradition of all-around education, especially of music.
The school flew the Chinese national flag in tribute to the visit of
Wang Yongli, minister counselor for education at the Chinese embassy in London.
Charles was the first person from China honored with an engraved paving slab in his name.
Doctor Richard Maloney, headmaster of Uppingham School, praised that Charles has contri
buted a lot to the communication between China and the UK in terms of music and education partnership.
