From Farm to Table: The Tale of the Red Dragon in YCIS Shanghai


Every noon from the start of November, children from YCIS Puxi Primary gathered to collaborate on a mural on the 18-meter wall at the Hongqiao Campus. They took on different roles, painting the dragon – including coloring the tail, outlining the eyes, and depicting various characters across its body. The children were enthusiastic about their shared creative task come rain or shine.

The mural, titled The Tale of Red Dragon, is a project conceived by the artists in the Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Programme at YCIS Shanghai. The AIRs in Pudong and Puxi create spectacular art pieces with students from YCIS’ five campuses throughout the school year. For this project, Ms Elena Hasnas, YCIS Puxi AIR, joined forces with YCIS Pudong AIR Ms Haruka Ostley.

The children participated in all the steps of the mural creation, constantly revising, processing, and putting forward creative opinions, while the two artists helped to guide and inspire throughout. 

In the future, AIRs in YCIS look forward to making even more meaningful, collaborative creations with students on different campuses throughout the academic year!

Maths Masters: Dulwich Pudong Students Win 5 Golds


This November seven Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong Senior School students took part in the UKMT Senior Maths Challenge. All seven did incredibly well, each managing to win a medal!

Josh Y did especially well, only getting one question incorrect, and has qualified to take part in the British Mathematical Olympiad Round 1 (BMO1). The BMO1 is a notoriously difficult three-and-a-half hour Olympiad paper that is only attempted by the very best mathematicians in the world in Year 13 or under. Josh’s feat is even more impressive as he is only in Year 11.

The top-scoring 60% of participants are awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1. In addition, 1,000 of the very highest performers are invited to take part in the BM01, a difficult Olympiad that is used as the first round in the selection of the British national team which ultimately participates in the International Mathematical Olympiad.

Impressive accomplishments by the talented Dulwich Pudong mathematicians!
