Our Community

School is more than just education; it is about community. At The British School of Beijing, Shunyi, we see ourselves as a community of students, teachers and parents all working together.

Community engagement and developing a social conscience in students is an essential part of school life at The British School of Beijing. We do this through forming local connections, encouraging and supporting an active Parents’ Association and using the extensive resources within the Nord Anglia Education global community.

Parents' Association 

The pride of The British School of Beijing is our fantastic parent community and volunteers that makes us not just a school, but a family.

The Parents’ Association is a welcoming group of parents who organise events and activities that celebrate our school community. And they have a lot of fun doing it!

Through their commitment, we make closer links between the school and our community in Shunyi and across China. Major events organised by the Parents’ Association include:

  • Welcome events - Orientation Day, Welcome Picnic, Welcome Back Coffee, New Parent's Welcome
  • Social events - Champagne & Canape Evening, International Day, Spring Dinner & Dance
  • Seasonal events - German Market and Christmas Fayre, Santa's Secret Shop, Chinese New Year Temple Fair, Summer Fayre
  • Celebrations - Year 6 & Year 13 Graduation, Valentine's Volunteer Appreciation

Chatter Box Café

Chatter Box Café is the central meeting point for the school community and its visitors. The café is open every school morning from 8.30am to 11.30am and in the afternoons from Monday to Thursday. Waffles, pancakes, toasted sandwiches, burritos and delicious bread supplied from a local bakery tempt customers in each day. The bread can be ordered and is delivered weekly so supporting the workers who produce it.

Chatter Box Café is run by parent volunteers and all of the money  is donated to local community and charity-based organisations such as orphanages, support groups and migrant schools.

I volunteer every Thursday morning and I enjoy the chance to chat with other parents, knowing that 100% of my time and effort is supporting very worthy causes in our community. Joke Van Moere, Chatter Box Café volunteer and parent

Local and China-wide connections

For each school year, a significant amount was raised through BSB Shunyi for charities. Here are some of the community service initiatives that BSB Shunyi's Christmas Fayre and Summer Fayre, school projects and Chatterbox have supported throughout the years :  

Alenah's Home, Dew Drops Foster Home, Educating Girls of Rural China, Five Loaves Two Fish House, Hope - Riding for Disabled Children, Home for Children, Hui Hui Foster Home, Migrant Children's Foundation (MCF), Myanmar IB CAS projects, Ningxia Schools project,  Roundabout,  Tanzania projects, Yang Fan School for Children with Hearing Impairment, and others.

Every December, our Year 12 IB CAS students organised and helped run the Shoebag Appeal which encouraged donations of items from the BSB families to a school we support in Gansu province and local migrant schools and orphanages in Beijing.  Children received shoebags with useful items for their Chinese New Year. We have provided some projectors to be used in the classroom to help teach the children.  Our CAS students organised a USB with resources on them so they can be shown in the classroom.  

Global Connections

Our school has the advantage of being part of Nord Anglia Education’s global network of schools which enable us to capitalise on community service opportunities in other parts of the world. This is done through Nord Anglia Education’s Global Campus programmes.
