From Headmaster

Dear Parents, 

 

Service to others is a key pillar within a Dulwich education, so it is pleasing to be able to report on two events this week which had philanthropy in mind (please read more in the Senior School newsletter). On Sunday evening, sisters Elizabeth and Victoria Ji gave a concert in the Wodehouse Theatre, collaborating with friends from DCB and elsewhere to raise money for the charity Roundabout and specifically to help hearing and sight impaired children. This was a great success and a credit to both girls for their organisation and preparation.

In addition to this, Ms. Tomaszun invited the charity Education In Sight (EIS) to present to Years 7-12 about the importance of assisting students in rural China to obtain prescription glasses. This was also well received and we have several projects underway to engage our students in helping those less fortunate.

Other guests who had an impact this week were Will and Ian from the organisation Freedom from Chemical Dependency. This US based company has an excellent reputation for educating young people on the physiological facts and dangers of addiction. We thank them both for sharing their stories so openly and for the time they spent with students and parents.

Our parents are already coming in large numbers to workshops and presentations given by our busy teams. We thank our Early Years teachers Jamie Scott, Rebecca Richardson and Jing Gao for their phonics presentation which was attended by ninety-two parents! These parents now have a clearer understanding of this subject and I commend them for spending their time in this way, working with our staff.

 

Finally, it was a delight to hand out my first Headmaster's Commendation of the term, to a Year 5 student, Julinna W, who excelled in writing a diary entry as the main character of Michael Morpurgo's 'The Butterfly Lion'. Well done Julinna.

 

Kind regards,

Tencent 99 Philanthropy Days at DCB

 

Dulwich inspires and cultivates an understanding and care for others, so our students develop the desire to build a better future through a deeper knowledge of the world. Service plays an important role in a Dulwich education. From recycling waste to building up schools for rural areas of Cambodia, our students have shown strong enthusiasm in community service. 

 

In partnership with Dulwich International Schools Foundation (DISF), Dulwich College Beijing is proud to lead the first Tencent 99 Philanthropy Days charity campaign across the DCI community.  This week DISF China launched a campus-wide education and fundraising campaign to support Education in Sight (EIS).

 

EIS is an NGO that works in the poorest regions of rural China to get students the eyeglasses they need to see clearly in school. In the countryside, as many as 50% of middle school students can't see clearly and don't have glasses. As a result, these students can't learn in class and suffer from poorer performance and higher drop-out rates. Since 2012, EIS has delivered over 170,000 eye exams and 22,000 pairs of eyeglasses to students directly in schools.

 

 

DCB students can now design advocacy campaign posters for EIS. The best submissions will be opened for voting on September 7th and 8th, with winners and prizes announced on September 11th.

 

 

Details of the competitions are as follows.
