Top University Destinations for our Graduates

The class of 2017 has made great achievements in obtaining offers at high education centers across the world. These include universities from the G5 and Russell group, such as UCL (University College London), LSE (London School of Economics) and the University of Edinburgh. Students have also gained places outside of the UK at the University of Amsterdam, Hong Kong University, University of Toronto, just to name a few. Just one example of our students success is demonstrated by Will, who has been accepted into the Bachelor of Fine Arts (Cinematography) New York Film Academy in Los Angeles.

The New York Film Academy in Los Angeles is one of the most reputable and top-ranked schools for Cinematography, as the campus films at Paramount and Universal Studios and has direct links to industry experts. The academy provides its students with exceptional hands-on and practical opportunities. Moreover, unlike other cinematography schools, students gain experience in all facets of filmmaking while honing their abilities as cinematographers to prepare them to find employment upon graduating. 

As mentioned by the academy, “Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and Jodie Foster are among the many figures in the film industry who have sent their family members to study at the New York Film Academy.” Many achievements by the alumnus of the Academy include participation in recent box office hits such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the renowned TV show The Walking Dead.

Will is just one of the many graduates who have performed exceptionally in obtaining places at top-ranked universities. The College congratulates all graduates from the Class of 2017 for their high achievements and looks forward to hearing about their further successes as they go on to Universities around the world!

Founder’s Day

This year we are celebrating our ever-popular Founder’s Day on Saturday 13 May and as always the event will go ahead whatever the weather. If the sun shines then, as well as all of the booths, activities and vendors inside the Senior School, we will also have activities on the rugby field.

The festivities start at 12pm with a brilliant Teacher Taiko performance in the Country Booth area in the gym. Then the fun begins. 

We have more than 20 countries being represented offering food and traditional items from their homeland, over 20 vendors selling their products and lots of fun games and activities organized by our Senior School students for the whole family, including the very popular Tombola and Bouncy Castles.

During the day there will be performances taking place in our theatre with dance routines, musicians and vocal acts all performed by students or parents for our entertainment. Please remember there is no food or drink allowed in the theatre.

The day ends at 4pm, hopefully with very tired children and happy parents. A day of eating, shopping and playing games what more could you ask for.

Remember to pick up a programme at the ticket booth as you enter the school, there’s a useful map inside. All of the Country Booths and many of the activities only take coupons on the day, rather than cash. The coupons are already on sale at school every lunch time in the Senior School and Junior School coffee shops. They are available on the day too but if you can buy them in advance you will avoid the queues! Coupons are 5RMB each and available in sets of 10.

Click here to see the map for parking and the flow of traffic. Visitor parking is on Dong Chang Road or on the grounds of Suzhou High School.

We have arranged for some school buses to be in service on the day to help you get to and from the event. This is on a first come, first served basis.

The whole school has enjoyed a range of engaging activities and events based on finding out more about sustainability to celebrate Earth Day.

Our Senior School students were proud to announce their partnership with Green Initiatives, an environmentally-oriented NGO based in Shanghai, to support their RE:FORM project. The RE:FORM project collects unwanted textiles, stocks them for further sorting to be either up-cycled, down-cycled, or donated to charities. A collection box has already been set up in the Senior School foyer area. All students, staff and everyone in the DCSZ community are invited to pack up any unwanted clothing, bedding, socks and footwear at home and put them into the collection box, to reduce our environmental footprint and drive change towards conscious fashion. 

The launch ceremony for the RE:FORM project took place at the start of the Earth Day opening ceremony, with a keynote presentation made by representatives from Green Initiatives, who also hosted workshops on food safety and recycling for our Key Stage 3 students. Our students demonstrated their keen interest in the projects of Green Initiatives through their active participation in the keynote presentation and the workshops. Our SS Eco Council students also had the opportunity to meet with the Green Initiatives representatives at lunch to learn more about the works of Green Initiatives and introduce them to our own ongoing projects. They received valuable suggestions on how to best use social media platforms to promote their ongoing sustainability projects and campaigns. They were immensely inspired by Green Initiatives and now plan to organise a clothes-swap event soon this term. 

Other activities during Earth Day included a debate, planting, tie-dying, arts and crafts, Green Oscars (student environmental film making) urban design and making an eco house. Chartwells also very kindly provided support in organising cooking workshops for the students using vegetarian and environmentally-friendly recipes. More excitingly, all the recipes and dishes tested and loved by the students were served at lunch for the whole Senior School. 

Another new project just launched is the recycled fashion design competition, REVIVAL Wearable Arts Fashion Awards. There are now more than 20 students from across different year groups participating as designers to create a full line of garments using recycled and repurposed materials. CCA time on Wednesday afternoons are now dedicated for the students to work on their creations, and last week the students participated in a professional design workshop through Skype supported by professors from SCAD university at Hong Kong. 


Music Room Project

Dulwich students have established yet another music based programme called the Music Room Project. This started last year after they were awarded an ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International Schools) grant of 2000USD. The aim of the project was to refurbish a music room for students at migrant schools. The students sourced and bought all the materials needed and visited the school every week to do the refurbishing work themselves. Their first project, at Ming Xing migrant school, was such a success that this year they decided to continue the project at anther school. Impressed by the student’s commitment and initiative the ACAMIS Board awarded another 1500USD. They have since been working with Li Xun migrant school to refurbish their music room too.

The student leader of the ACAMIS Music Room project said, “Our determination and teamwork is stronger than ever, but now we have more skills and experience added to the mix, making our team a truly tight-knit and professional one. It was remarkable to see how well and effectively our team was able to overcome many challenges along the way and everyone has tried their hardest to paint the walls as beautifully and professionally as possible.”

The project will be completed very soon and the students have lots of ideas for the final decoration of the room, painting cloud designs and fixing musical theme stickers on the walls. When completed they will present Li Xun migrant school with the musical instruments that they had wanted and present the newly furbished room to the children.

This project has been truly meaningful because, although it was initially aimed towards helping the migrant students, the students from our own school have learnt a lot too. One student said, “The experience of being part of the ACAMIS music room has been unique and hugely rewarding.” The students hope to continue with this project in the years to come.
