Here's a look at what our schools have been up to. 


All-Girls Dance Team Harnesses the Power of the Dragon

Concordia International School's dedicated troupe of dancers began their journey as part of the Pudong Education Bureau and Pudong Culture Sports & Tourism Bureau's Chinese Culture Program that aims to share aspects of Chinese intangible cultural with international school students. The girls successfully debuted their dance at this year’s middle school CNY assemblies.


Wellington College China's EdFest

After a yearlong hiatus, Wellington College China's Festival of Education returned once again in April. This annual event is an opportunity for educators, parents, and general education enthusiasts to come together, share ideas, and gain new insights into teaching and learning. This year's theme is "Interpreting the Future of Education" and featured live events on Saturday, April 24 and virtual events from the 18th to 23th of April. 


Shanghai Family’s 12th Annual International School Expo

Our 12th International School Expo was a hit! As usual, we held the event in both Pudong at Kerry Parkside, and in Puxi at THE PLACE. The annual International School Expo provides the latest international education information for interested families and makes it easier to choose a suitable school for their children. Participating schools set up booths to share information and answer questions. 


Hongwen School "Question Masters"

To stimulate students' desire for knowledge and creativity, the Hongwen School recruited a team of Question Masters. Since December, the school received 406 questions from stu- dents across all grades. On 25th February, a live Q&A session and awards ceremony was hosted to engourage students to boldly ask questions, and be enthusiastic learners and independent thinkers.


LUC’s "love·hope" Art Exhibition

The first public welfare children's art exhibition by LUC Education Group and AXF (ArtXFuture) was held at Shanghai Powerlong Art Museum from 20th to 28th March. The AXF team has planned eight themed artistic experience days and a series of interactive workshops and activities on art topics for each day. 


Emotions at SH French School

Primary school students participated in a workshop on managing emotions. This training allows them to take a new look at emotions, and comprehend them in order to better manage them on a daily basis, giving greater well-being, increased concentration, and calmness in class, and also at home!


Celebrate 100 Days of School at SSIS!

On 22 February 2021, SH Singapore International School celebrated 100 Days of School with each primary grade using the theme by dressing as centenarians and wearing shirts with 100 items. The celebrations led to learning in mathematics to English to sustainability. The milestone afforded us the time to reflect on what we had learnt.


Shanghai Qibao Dwight High School

The Dwight School’s Annual Global Music Festival has previously been held in iconic venues such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and the Shanghai Concert Hall. This year, Dwight School Seoul is hosted the virtual event on 17th April. Being part of a global network offers students countless opportunities for cross-campus creative and curricular collaborations, exchange programmes, and so much more. With six Dwight Schools worldwide, the possibilities for students to become globally minded leaders are endless.
