Dulwich Pudong One Voice Summit


Dulwich Pudong are thrilled to announce that its annual student-led One Voice Summit has been recognized in the 2023 International School Awards, shortlisted in the top three in the category of Ethical Values Education!

It's a great honor to be recognized by the International School Awards. This year there were 291 applications received from international schools in 61 countries; many of fantastic schools around the world which made the shortlist.


One Voice Summit is one of Dulwich Pudong’s flagship Global Citizenship events. It originated several years ago with Senior School students who wanted to find new ways to collaborate with other students in Shanghai. They saw that many inter-school activities were based on competition (sports, Model United Nations, etc.), and rarely focused on unity and working together.

BISS Puxi Sports Day


BISS Puxi Sports Day for Years 4 to 6 was a remarkable success with amazing achievements and much fun shared by all. There were too many standout performances to mention, but suffice to say the children gave it their all and were suitably exhausted at the end!

Away from the sporting achievements, it was pleasing to see group camaraderie and support within the houses and year groups and even students passing on tips for success.


Well done to all staff who made the event possible, the Sports Leaders from Secondary for their amazing assistance, and the parents who were able to attend and cheer on the children.

SSIS Senior School Student Councilors & House Captains Announced


At SSIS, they believe that every student is a leader. They provide various opportunities for students to apply leadership values and skills from an early age. This includes formal leadership roles or informal options within the classroom settings.

SSIS was excited to announce its Senior School Student Council and House Captains 2022-2023. These students went through a rigorous application, election and interview process. They are role models to their peers and juniors and will serve as leaders of the school community.

Everyone looks forward to seeing the fruits of their labors in the school year and embodying the SSIS attributes. There is no limit to what they can achieve.

Exploring the Wide World of Career Choices: A Visit from SCAD


Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi was honored to welcome Ms. Vivyan Lam from The Savannah College of Arts and Design. It was a great opportunity for students to engage with a university representative in person, and learn different facets of the university application process from her unique perspective. 

Dulwich Puxi look forward to providing even more similar opportunities as just one key element of its robust University and Careers Counseling program.

Britannica Shanghai Teachers v Students Football Match


Secondary students at Britannica International School Shanghai took the battle with their teachers from the classroom to the football pitch, with the very first teachers versus students football match, leading to an electric atmosphere with vocal supporters crowded along the sidelines.

A strong first half saw the teachers three goals up at halftime, with the secondary students yet to score. But it was a case of youth over experience in the second half; with the wind behind their backs, the students made up for their poor start, their skill and stamina proving too much for the staff.


The game was a great way for teachers and students to bond outside of the classroom. Well done to all who participated.

Respect & Living Together in the Spotlight at Shanghai French School


Respect and living together are important values shared by all the students at Shanghai French School. On their Yangpu campus, all staff members gathered so that students could thank them. Cleaning, canteen and buses staff, as well as their assistants, all received a flower and words of gratitude.

A beautiful moment of solidarity.

German School Shanghai's German as a Foreign Language (DaF) Program


Children with different mother tongues mingle in the German School Shanghai (DSS) and so do their parents. The DaF – Deutsch als Fremdsprache, 'German as a Foreign Language'  program now makes it possible. DaF Parents' Café is opening in both the Hongqiao and Yangpu campuses of DSS. 


At this multilingual get-to-know-you event, the parents of the first term DaF children spoke any language they were comfortable with and looked for their 'partner families' from the same school. The idea is to connect the families and help DaF children integrate into the German education system as soon as possible. 

A new DaF program has been launched this school year for toddlers, preschoolers, and up to 4th graders with no or little previous German knowledge entering the school.
