Dulwich Pudong Celebrates Founder's Day 2023


Dulwich Founder's Day 2023 is an annual tradition that celebrates the founding of Dulwich College London in 1619.

On May 27, thousands of staff, students, and parents came together on campus for activities, food, fun and of course amazing performances by Dulwich students.

This one was extra special as it marks the official kickoff of the countdown to Dulwich Pudong’s 20-year anniversary birthday party in September.

BISS Students Celebrate Children's Day at Evergreen


Students at BISS Puxi have enjoyed giving back to the community in recent weeks. The school’s Key Stage 2 Choir had the absolute privilege to perform two songs for a group of elderly residents at the nearby Evergreen Homeland residential community.

Being Children’s Day, it seemed particularly fitting that some of the school’s talented young performers took the time to bring the gift of music to some of the community’s most elderly citizens. As the children sang, warm friendly smiles showed on the faces of those in the audience as they enjoyed the performance.

Following on from their performance, the children thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the elders, talking to them and learning from them. In all, a valuable experience for both the children and the residents.

Britannica's Annual Swimming Galas


Britannica International School Shanghai's annual swimming galas took place this month, and can be summarized in two words; competition and camaraderie. There were a number of personal best times recorded over the week with some races going to a photo finish for medal spots!

Equally there were a number of students competing in their first ever swimming competition, some of whom only started to learn to swim this term! An incredible achievement for all and it was particularly pleasing to see the atmosphere, school spirit and encouragement given by all students to their friends and classmates throughout the events.
