Dulwich Pudong Junior School Sports Day


This year recorded 21 record-breaking performances! Sports Day is an extension of the Dulwich Olympian programme, to compensate for the lack of inter-school fixtures due to COVID-19. There were six athletic events (60m, 200m, Quoit throw, Javelin, Long Jump and Triple Jump), and six teambuilding class events (Old Skool Relay, Wacky Water, Jumping Jenga, Feed Me Food Challenge and Inflatable World). Of note were the accomplishments of three students: Katherine C, Year 5, Felix Z, Year 3 and Chloe W, Year 3. Together they earned 18 gold medals.


Wellington's Successful 5th Festival of Education


Wellington College China held its annual Festival of Education, bringing thought leaders in progressive education together with hundreds of attendees at its three campuses in Tianjin, Shanghai and Hangzhou. Taking place over two weekends, the Festival featured a series of stimulating and informative talks, panel discussions and workshops. The Festival of Education is one of China's leading forums for educators, parents and general enthusiasts who seek insights on everything from career development to cutting-edge theories and new methodologies.


Battle of the Books at Concordia


In the Battle of the Books, Concordia Elementary students competed against 21 teams from six schools across Shanghai. Teams read from eight selected titles and contested in three rounds: redesigning a book cover, decorating a cake in the theme of a book, and an online fast-paced Kahoot quiz of 120 questions. Our teams played brilliantly and were extremely concentrated throughout the tense but exciting afternoon. The scores are now in and we can announce that THE REMARKABLE COYOTES came in first and won the competition!


25 Years of Franco-German Friendship


The French School and Deutsche Schule Shanghai celebrate 25 years of friendship. Openness, tolerance, and solidarity, the schools share two Eurocampuses in Qingpu and Yangpu along with strong values since 1996. They collaborate on tournaments, sports competitions, family stays, Christmas, a common orchestra, and celebration days.


Dulwich Pudong Seniors University Bound


It was another outstanding year for university acceptances with high quality offers and many admitted to their top choice school. These results were encouraging as this year saw unprecedented competition for top universities as removal of standardised testing due to COVID-19 led to a surge in applications. Graduates continued to perform strongly in specialist programmes with acceptance to Sports Science (McGill), Film (London Film Academy), Fashion (University of the Arts London) and Medicine (Cardiff Medical, University College Dublin, King's College London).
