Every academic year is an important one in the life of a school and indeed in the education of a student. This year is no exception and having seen the draft of the yearbook and written my introduction for it there is no doubt the year, that is rapidly drawing to a close, has been a very busy, exciting and successful one.
Copies of the yearbook, which is a fabulous memento of the year, will be available in the last week of term. If you would like a copy please complete and return the order form that we have just sent home to school by Friday 13 June.
Next year promises to be even more exciting, marking as it does the tenth anniversary of the founding of the British International School Shanghai Puxi Campus on this present site at Jinguang Lu. Over the summer we will complete the refurbishment and redecoration programme of the primary building and the campus will be in great shape as we welcome everyone back for the start of the new academic year.
We will be holding a number of commemorative events and a variety of activities and competitions will take place to mark the anniversary over the course of the academic year. We will be looking back on the development and growth of the school and celebrating the successes of students past and present.
The theme of our celebratory year will be ten years of “Inspiring learners, shaping destinies, changing the world”.
We are all very much looking forward to what promises to be a special year in the history of our school community.
