SHSID 25th Anniversary Celebration
The celebration began with the wind ensemble and immediately following, the SHSID 25TH Anniversary Video allowed us to review the development of the school over the past 25 years; this enlightening video helps us to appreciate the rich and colorful school life of our students. Principal Feng made a speech first. He mentioned Mr. Tang Shengchang, who was Principal of Shanghai High School then, applied his unique perspective of an educator and prospective judgement of Shanghai’s development to initiate the proposal of “Shanghai High School International Division”. He said “The orientation of running a school must be given priority, that is respecting the International standards, sticking to the Chinese characteristics, and claiming the sovereignty of education. In this case, we can contribute to the secondary International education as well as set up a role model of building up a self-managed international school by Chinese people. With that, SHSID could also dedicate itself to Shanghai’s establishment of global scientific and innovative center with SHS wisdom and SHS power. Let’s make our joint effort together to make SHSID a world leading research and innovative school!”
