As class breaks up for the summer, and students and teachers alike take flight for home or adventure, we asked some of Beijing’s top international schools to tell us their highlight of the 2016/17 academic year.
Beijing World Youth Academy
“This year was BWYA’s 15th Anniversary and one of the highlights of the year was getting the whole school together at the Wangjing Campus for a special celebratory photograph. It took a lot of preparation and a lot of shouting down a megaphone to line everyone up but the picture came out great!”
The British School of Beijing, Shunyi
“Students at The British School of Beijing (BSB), Shunyi have taken on the challenge from UNICEF to raise awareness of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and to work with their local communities to create solutions for these global issues. Four students ambassadors Tildie, Helen, Sunny and Sabrina (left to right) will present their ideas about SDG #2 ‘Zero Hunger’ at the UN High Level Political Forum in July at the UN Headquarters in New York.”
3e International School
“3e International School culminated another sensational year of Explore Experiment Express! 3e families enjoyed a wide range of engaging events – Families Around the World, Halloween, Christmas Bazaar, Temple Fair, Community Day, Student Led Conferences, March Madness, Science Fair, Water Day, Art Exhibition, Fashion Parade, Authors Celebration, Field Day and more!”
“Aidi School successfully hosted the ‘Walking with the Sun’ summer charity concert in Beijing Poly Theater, with over 500 students and teachers volunteering in the whole project. More than RMB 200,000 was collected and will be donated to a charity school for the children of migrant workers.”
Dulwich College Beijing
“The International Schools Choral Music Society (ISCMS) festival, one of the largest music festivals of its kind in Asia, returned to Dulwich College Beijing this February, the first school to host the festival 10 years ago. 330 students from 20 international schools worked with acclaimed world class musicians for 3 days to perfect a repertoire to be performed in the Forbidden City Concert Hall.”
Beijing No. 55 High School
“From September 15 to 18, 2016, international students from Beijing No. 55 High School participated in the first series of ‘Green Power’ activities; they performed an on-site assembly of their vehicle, then competed in a race using the vehicle. They won high praise from the judges for their effort.”
