Celebrating World Children's Day at BISS Puxi

On Monday 20 November, The British International School Shanghai, Puxi celebrated World Children's Day. This UNICEF initiative holds special significance, as we at BISS Puxi strive to create an inclusive environment in which every child feels valued and empowered. The Sustainable Development Goals focused on this year – that of ‘Goal 4: Quality Education’ and ‘Goal 10: Reduced Inequalities’ – also resonate deeply with our commitment to promoting academic excellence and creating a community where diversity is celebrated.

Launching Our New House Logos

We are excited to bring you the latest news about an outstanding achievement by one of our Year 12 students, Jieun Lee.

Year 9 students in Ms Sena Piao’s class have been to RT Mart today to practice their oral skills. The students have been learning language from the topic of shopping and food.
