A Spooky Halloween at BSB Shunyi!

On Friday 29th October, students and staff at BSB Shunyi celebrated Halloween with some scary, spooky and funny costumes! Everyone was asked to donate 10 RMB to the Dew Drops charity and we had special spooky dance sessions, as well as a Halloween themed golden time!

Some of the children’s costumes included harry potters, witches, clowns, devils and more. ​We were supposed to have a Halloween bake sale but it was cancelled due to COVID restrictions – maybe next year! ​Everyone had an exciting and spooky Halloween and we are already looking forward to the next October!

On 11th November, students and staff at BSB Shunyi celebrated Remembrance Day. Everyone was encouraged to raise awareness by wearing a poppy and donating money to charity. Students and staff also had an assembly about Remembrance Day in their classrooms, where there were videos and poems, such as ‘In Flanders Fields’ from the primary and secondary Head Boy and Head Girl.

Furthermore, everyone had a 2 minutes silence at 11:00am because to remember the soldiers who fought and died in the war. Everyone raised lots of money and we all had an incredible day. Thank you to everyone for your support!

​Wicked Writing and Wicked Writers!

Have you ever seen the wicked writing wall in the primary school on the second floor’s reading area? It has recently been updated with some super writing! Head of Writing and the teacher responsible for the wicked writing wall, Mrs. Warman, suggested the Young Journalist team interview some of the children chosen to appear on the wall.

We grabbed Chaelin Park from 6D and asked her for a statement about her wonderful writing. She said, “I feel really proud of this because when I was in Year 3, I couldn’t even speak English!” She added, “I have really improved my writing and am very proud of what I’ve done.”

We are happy to be sharing such great work with others in the school and look forward to seeing who is next to appear on the wall. We encourage everyone to go and check it out. Who knows – it could be you next!
