School’s began, and the first week has been completed!
Our first assembly this year happened on the track, as there was a small fire in our auditorium and has yet to be cleaned and repaired.
We started Student Government quickly this year, as we arranged to join fellow student leaders from sister schools in Tianjin, Qingdao and Shenyang for a leadership conference hosted by us. This is the fifth year of the ISC leadership conference, and the first we have sent our students to. Our outdoor education leader handled the team building time, and our English teacher took care of the scheduling; I enjoyed speaking to the students. We had a great time – and at China prices: the cost of three nights lodging, meals on Friday and Saturday, entrance to the panda reserve and the conference room rental was less than US $35 per person.
I’m looking forward to having a great year working with and advising the students!
