From our Community Group - 3rd March

03 March 2017

The Week Ahead – Monday 6th March – Sunday 12th March

  • Found 158 on Julu Lu

Coming up….


Trip to the Noodle Factory – Wednesday 8th March, 2017

We would like to invite you to join us on a visit to one of the last remaining hand-made noodle factories in Shanghai. Come and learn about the raw materials used, how noodles are made in the traditional way and sample the finished product in this family-run business in Puxi.

There will be a bus departing from school at 9am and returning by 2:30pm. The cost os 400 RMB per person which includes transport, an English-speaking tour guide and tour, plus lunch at a local restaurant (Yunnan style food, similar to that at Lost Heaven)

Please send an email to as soon as possible if you’d like to join us.


Casual Night Out – Saturday 25th March at 7:30pm

Come and join the Community Group for the second round of our Casual Nights Out. Just as the first event was, this is a very relaxed way for us to catch-up with fellow parents and teachers. All are welcome.

This time we will venture to Puxi to the newly developed and opened ‘Found 158’ on Julu Lu. We start the evening at ‘Hooked’ and ‘El Santo’. These two bars are interconnected which allows for us to move from one to the other easily, enjoying the theme of each bar…..Hooked (the sister to Bull and Claw) serves up fish and chips and poke bowls….and El Santo (the sister of El Luchador) is known for its tacos and tequila.

But possibly the best thing about ‘Found 158’ is Homeslice Pizza which is right next door to the two bars. The team there provide the tastiest handmade pizzas in all of Shanghai. You can sit or stand and enjoy one, or even two, toppings from the delicious menu while having a beer, wine or spirit from their selection. This may be your last stop before heading home.

We will also be organising two buses to transport those who need it to the Julu Lu area. One will leave from School, stopping at the Emerald Compound on the way, and the other will leave from the Jin Qiao area.

Details of this will follow closer to the time. For now, we just want you to put the date in your diary….and, if you get a chance go and visit the ‘Found 158’ area yourself for a quick bite at Homeslice Pizza!


The Week in Review….

School networking event and International Wills talk – Monday 27th February at 6:00pm

The discussion around International Wills and ensuring you have the proper guardianship documentation in place while you are residing in China was eye-opening to say the least. Asa from Phoenix Wills presented us with information on how to securely set these both up.  For those of you who missed the talk and would like to discuss your situation directly with the experts, please feel free to contact them on the following email addresses:

‘Food for thought’…

Many people are not aware of ‘what’ the Community Group does or ‘how’ to get involved. Over the next week or so we are preparing a document on our Mission and Purpose and how we aim to achieve this. This will be published via a special Newsletter sent out from the School.

For now though, we would like to invite all those wishing to get involved in any volunteer work, or join the committee, to come along to our monthly meetings. The next one is Tuesday 7th March, 2017 at 9:00-10:30am in the Boardroom. Please just turn up….we are very friendly.


A few events to add to your calendar. Details will follow closer to the time….

  • Noodle Factory Tour – Wednesday 8th March, 2017
  • Casual Night out for Parents and Teachers: Julu Lu, Puxi – Saturday 25th March, 2017
