Welcome Back to School


On February 6, 2023, BIS welcomed our students back to school. When entering the school gate, each student received a red envelope from our Principal Mark and Academic Consultant Jennifer and received blessings from teachers and staff.

Candies symbolize sweetness and happiness, apples symbolize peace, oranges symbolize good luck, and drumming symbolizes wisdom. We wish our students all the best in the new year.

Recreation from the Recycling


Environmental engagement is one of the key strands in Dulwich Zhuhai’s Global Citizenship Competency framework, and sustainability and environmental conservation are embedded in its learning activities, as well as in campus life. An art House Competition was launched with the theme of “Recycled House Logo”. Students were encouraged to use their creative discretion when interpreting their House logos in a 3D way through various repurposed recycled media. Though each individual piece has meanings and themes that vary greatly, at its heart the notion of repurposing supplies into a uniformed sculpture sends a strong message on its own, that we should follow suit in thinking about diversity and collectivity.

You Are a Hero!


We are so very proud of our students for supporting such a great cause at the fantastic Fosun Chancheng Hospital. Our students wrote thank you cards to blood donors and our amazing Upper School ambassadors volunteered in-person to assist the doctors and nurses on the day of the blood drive.

Thank you to Dr Neil and the team at Foshan Fosun Chancheng IHCU for allowing Foshan EtonHouse International School to be involved in such a worthy cause.

SCIE Students Weave Magical Tales 


SCIE's semester one production, Arabian Nights, was a particularly imaginative evening of storytelling. Thirteen female students multi-roled in the well-known and much-loved stories compellingly retold by English playwright Dominic Cooke. The school's Head of Drama directed the play, supported by A1 drama students who designed the lighting, set and costumes as part of their A-level coursework. It was the first school production since COVID struck in 2020, and staff and students alike were thrilled to watch live theatre again.

When Scavenger Hunts Meet Arts at SIS 

Shekou International School secondary students had an innovative and fun Arts Showcase at Net Valley Campus. Instead of having the traditional art exhibition, secondary teachers organized a ‘scavenger hunt’ style of exhibition. Students scanned the codes placed around the campus and answered questions, and the answers led to other questions until, eventually, students found the final art piece. They will need to take a selfie with the art piece and upload it onto the platform to call the completion of this activity. School event such as this is one of the ways we engage in learning here at SIS.
