Belles of the Ball

01 March 2014

Thanks to the hard-working volunteers from our community who put on yet another fantastic event.  The sense of excitement from all the girls and the pride of the Daddies escorting their daughters was everywhere to be seen in the ballroom of the Holiday Inn, Kangqiao.

239 beautiful girls and their dashing Daddies (177) enjoyed a wonderful Daddy Daughter Masquerade Ball together on Saturday night.   After hours of pampering everyone looked amazing but nothing could stop the fierce competition during the dance-off.  Not sure who wanted to win more, the daddies or the daughters!  It was clear that style definitely won out over enthusiasm as the girls maintained their 'top-dancers' title for probably (at least) the fourth year running!

This event, along with the Dads n' Lads camp-out are becoming legendary.  Many a business trip is postponed to make sure these high profile dates are not missed!

We are really lucky to continue to have the dedication and commitment from our teams of volunteer parents who are relentless in raising the bar year after year.  Especially when you consider that there is a great deal more going on in Shanghai than there was 5 or 10 years ago.  They may not say it, but it is also clear it means a great deal to the students to have parents who care about their educational and social well-being enough to give up hours and days negotiating with suppliers to put on a truly professional event.
