Spring is not yet over, but May is behind us and summer is on its way. Since the founding of SUIS Qingpu, the campus’ Qinghe school teams have all grown along the way, their content extending from art and sports to scientific and academic development. With the coming end of the semester, our school teams ushered in their final report performances. Our teachers, parents and classmates gathered together and enjoyed the reports of achievements and the elegant demeanour on display from each Qinghe school team.
The school orchestra played
“All things are bright and beautiful”
“March of the Army”
Listening to the passionate western music, melodious Chinese music, and the beautiful harmony between them, the audience was thrilled by the school orchestra’s playing of “All things are bright and beautiful” and “March of the Army”.
by the Qingfeng Dance Team
In the gentle and charming Jiangnan water town, girls wearing sleeves walk among the unique houses under the shadow of lights, revealing the unique spirit of Jiangnan girls. Through their amazing dance movements, the dancers changed from ‘soft’ to ‘rigid’, followed by strong steps timed with the rhythmic music. This group of young children vividly performed the most beautiful and moving appearance of the girls in the south of the Yangtze River, as if they had really come to the geomantic treasure-house of “the sunrise makes the river blossom brighter than the fire, and the spring makes the river green and blue”, helping us feel the soft wuyin and local customs. Witnessing this wonderful dance performed with such ease makes us realize it all must have resulted from dedicated practice behind the scenes.
The Middle School choir’s
“Blue and White Porcelain”
Blue and White Porcelain, brought by the Middle School choir, has a strong Chinese style, and its beautiful melody and musical artistic conception (like splash-ink landscape painting) can be deeply imprinted in the mind, making people think of a bygone era.
football, basketball, badminton, swimming
On the big screen, countless wonderful moments were captured, leaving us with an eternal picture. The sound of the hitting of a ball, of waves rolling, the gasping sound of running and jumping, and even the sound of sweat falling to the ground are intertwined. This is the youthful spirit of SUIS Qingpu Campus students, full of athletes’ love and dedication to sports.
Martial arts school team：
Programming, Mathematics and English
There were a group of children who love mathematics, programming and English, and they carried themselves through the world of numbers and symbols every day. They not only have agile thinking, but also strong language expression and innovative ability. Under the leadership of teachers, they have won major awards in domestic and international competitions such as the Youth Science and Technology Competition, the Algorithm Programming Competition, Little TOEFL, and Major League Mathematics in the United States.
“Children’s Painting” Art:
Every artwork is a vivid expression. The little models were dressed in creative and personalized clothes and walked with confidence, turning around, spinning and swinging. The stage lights were completely on, showing the performers’ clothes perfectly. The students’ unique catwalk style gave the audience a unique fashion show, winning cheers and praises from teachers and parents.
The Nightingale Choir sings
“SUIS Our Home” and “Dear Teacher”
Finally, the Nightingale Choir sang “SUIS Our Home” and “Dear Teacher” to express students’ gratitude to their teachers. Teachers and students, like a family, help students on their growth path and constantly guide them in their journeys of self-discovery.
“Star of the School Team”
After the Awards Ceremony, a speech was delivered by Co-Principal Adam and Assistant Principal Helen Liu. In addition to congratulating the students for their wonderful performances, they especially thanked each school team’s teacher and coach for their hard work, as well as the two School Teams Coordinators, Ms. Stella Xu and Ms. Meera He for their commitment and efforts. We look forward to witnessing all school team members’ future studies, training and competitions in the future, working together to achieve greater success！
