Classrooms Decoration Activity 

On Friday December 8, we held a “Classroom Decoration Competition” as a way to encourage students to develop their skills; such as, leadership, creativity, team work, artistic talents, or simply to be good helpers. Also, is a way for teachers to connect more with students, and have a better relationship beyond the classroom.

The competition turned out very well, teachers and students got to know each other more by working together, and classrooms were decorated creatively.

Well done guys!

Annual Basketball Competition

Every year during these dates the Guangdong Experimental Shunde School organizes male and female basketball competitions among 10th, 11th, and 12th grades.

This year as usual, our International Program was part of it.

Most of our students are passionate about basketball, and some of them are very good at it, so they were so excited to compete one more time.

And even though we did not win any game this time, sadly; our students had a wonderful time practicing before, choosing their teammates, their uniforms, and encouraging one another after the match game.

They are ready for another chance next year. All the best!

This year before school officially started on September 1, students and teachers from MHA-Shunde Campus took part in some team building activities. We traveled to the nearby Magang Youth Camp where their staff had many activities prepared for us. Looking at the year ahead we must keep in mind that our success will only come if we work together as a team. None of the activities we took part of are able to be performed alone! Even for lunch we had to work together to build a fire and cook our own food. May we all continue to work in unity as we start this new school year.
