Dulwich Pudong Take Part in NO-CARbon November Challenge


For the second year in a row, many members of the Dulwich Pudong community came out for the NO-CARbon November Challenge put on by Education in Motion. They were happy to be joined by families and staff from sister schools Dulwich Puxi and Dehong Bilingual School.

On the day, families and staff members made their way across the city to the central meeting point in Xintiandi using low carbon means of transportation. Along the way, each team completed low carbon tasks and, at the end, calculated their collective carbon footprint.

Dulwich Pudong highly values embedding low carbon choices into our lifestyles. Through these teaspoons of change we make the world a better, more sustainable place.

Concordia High School Career Day


The working world is full of possibilities, and when it comes to choosing a career path, it doesn’t hurt to try new things. This was one of the many insights that Concordia Shanghai high schoolers took away from this year’s High School Career Day.

The event introduced students to different career paths presented by 28 professionals from various fields, including management, medicine, engineering, finance, law and media.


Students listened as speakers recounted their professional journeys and the many accomplishments and failures that led to their success. Students also received information and advice on how their education and passions might fit into their future career aspirations, better preparing them to plan for college and beyond.

“The speakers imparted a lot of valuable knowledge about their fields,” shared one Concordia high school teacher. “They also spoke about the soft skills needed in their careers, which I believe is beneficial for our student body to hear.”

Have you ever thought about becoming an actor, dancer or musician, performing on the stage to huge audience? Well, NAIS Pudong's CCA Drama club had this opportunity last month, when the FAME musical was presented by their outstanding Year 5 to 13 performers.

After months of rehearsals, it was finally showtime... and what a show it was! Congratulations to all those that took part, especially to those hidden behind the scenes. From lighting, to music to props and direction. There was a role for everyone! The audience were in awe of the acting, dancing and singing by the confident and creative performers!

German School Shanghai Hongqiao Intercultural Exchange


A special day – entirely in the spirit of vocational education – was in store for the students of the classes with an economic and commercial connection at German School Shanghai Hongqiao (DSSH) on December 2. 

The 10th, 11th and 12th graders of FOS classes had the pleasure of welcoming fellow students from two Chinese vocational schools – the Shanghai Commercial Accounting School (SCAS) and the Shanghai Pudong Foreign Affairs Services School (SPFASS)  – for an intercultural exchange.

In the workshop, the Chinese and German learners discussed their career plans and presented their visions – to be a teacher, a police officer in Switzerland or to start their own business.

It was an all-round successful event that broadened horizons and showed how important vocational education is from both Chinese and German perspectives. The DSSH FOS students look forward to a return visit to the Chinese vocational schools.

With long years’ experience in FOS, DSSH offers teenagers the opportunity to obtain a general entrance qualification for a university of applied sciences in two additional school years after secondary school.

The training combines vocational practice with the learning of technical theory and qualifies students to study at a German university of applied sciences.

Britannica International School Shanghai students spent a week enjoying various Computer Science activities – from beebot dance competitions and online coding to binary art projects and internet safety lessons.
