BISS Puxi Welcomes the Year of the Tiger with a Roar


In the run-up to the Chinese New Year holiday, students at BISS Puxi enjoyed a wide range of traditional Chinese cultural activities to welcome the Year of the Tiger with a roar! The school was alive with a blaze of red, as students and teachers donned festive red or Chinese outfits to bring in luck for the Year of the Tiger. Around the school, Chinese red lanterns and tiger-themed art and models from the Primary students were displayed.

Wellington College Production of 'Aladdin'


Wellington College International Shanghai’s Upper Prep children took audiences on a magic journey to ancient Baghdad for a pantomime production of Aladdin. The cast and crew provided plenty of laughs as the street-smart Aladdin vied for the affections of Princess Jasmine and outfoxed the evil Abanazer at every turn.


'Expect the Future' Charity Concert


Last month, music and dance concert Expect the Future was held at the Huiyin Theatre next to BISS Puxi. What made this concert different was that it was organized solely by five BISS Puxi Secondary students who wanted to give back to the community and raise money for the charity Heart to Heart.

The concert raised approximately RMB30,000 to help children in need of heart surgery whose parents couldn’t otherwise afford the medical care. Snow (Year 11), Charlotte, Ariel, Louis (Year 10) and Leo (Year 8) spent six months planning, organizing and then rehearsing for the concert.

The BISS community was very proud of its students – humbled, not only by their talent, but by the compassion they showed in wanting to help children and their families who find themselves in truly devastating circumstances.

A Toy Story - An PYP and MYP Collaboration Design Project


Starting in early September, students in Kindergarten from SCIS Hongqiao Early Childhood Education (ECE) campus and Grade 10 design students from the Hongqiao main campus have been forging a meaningful relationship. This partnership was born from a Middle Years Programme (MYP) provocation, to design and build a toy. Within the different phases of the project, there have been natural and mutually beneficial opportunities for the two groups of students to meet, play, and learn from one another.
