CLARENCE Valley Anglican School will be an important part of the education of 44 Chinese students who will attend the school for the remainder of the week.

The students, from Beijing, arrived yesterday and will be billeted with students for three or four nights.

The personal assistant to the principal, Robyn Vicary, said the students were spending the bulk of their visit to Australia at the school.

"They flew into Melbourne last week, had two days in Sydney before coming here," Mrs Vicary said. "CVAS is the only place in the country they're visiting outside the metropolitan area."

She said the main reason for the visit of the privately-funded group was to improve their English studies.

When the students leave Grafton on Friday they will go to the Gold Coast for two days before flying home.
