Friday 22nd and Saturday 23rd November saw the Inaugural Academic Olympiad China taking place at the British International School Guangzhou. Over the course of the two days, our 8 NAIS Pudong representatives battled tirelessly in a range of activities testing their mathematical, geographical, historical and logical knowledge. From naming capital cities to completing chess puzzles the children had to work well as a team and figure out problems even some adults would find tricky. The team spirit, bravery and resilience shown by the children was simply outstanding. They embodied the NAIS values at the core, supporting each other and showing true respect to other teams around them. A fantastic display of academic ability was shown by all. Well done to the team!
