Semester 1 completed

Staff and students are currently enjoying their long-awaited winter break after the successful completion of Semester 1. Due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, most of the last month has necessitated online teaching for all sub-schools.

Even though we have not been able to celebrate all of our end of semester events, each sub-school managed to hold online parent presentations and Parent–Teacher Interviews.

Wuqing Education Bureau leaders visit

During the first week of the winter break, Haileybury warmly welcomed leaders of the Wuqing District Education Bureau (WEB) and teachers from Yongyang Middle School. The visit was an opportunity to exchange ideas on education and teaching learning development.

The WEB leaders were led by Deputy Director, Gao Chenghao, and the Principal of Yongyang Middle School, Wen Ho Lee, led a group of 10 teachers. They were welcomed by Haileybury China Principal, Brian Gao, Vice Principal, Vivian Jia, and Head of HR, Adam Hang.

The two delegations visited our school teaching areas, sports venues, swimming pool, cafeteria and dormitories. Following the tour, everyone gathered in the Haileybury School Theatre and watched a short video clip highlighting the campus activities celebrated within each sub-school.

Mr Gao pointed out that Yongyang Middle School has been involved in education for many years and is a benchmark school in terms of teaching experience. It has built a good reputation in Wuqing District. He said the visit from the two delegations was a great honour for Haileybury and he hoped that the leaders and teachers could learn from each other.

The visit finished with a valuable question and answer session where many ideas and philosophies about education were exchanged.
