Congratulations to all of our participants for your creative ideas, serious preparation and invested time. Especially, despite the fact that we are not at school due to the pandemic, Ms Shannon the Head of School has taken our students by surprise when she secretly set each prize winner up for a personal award announcement.
In any contest, the highest prizes will only be given to a certain number of participants, however we do believe in the benefits that all of our students can draw from the participation and challenges in competitions. When students enjoy playing the role of a thoughtful and responsible leader, challenging their presentation skills, advocating for what they believe in, and learning for their future experiences, this is really the “sweet fruit” that the Contest organizers want them to achieve.
A big ‘Thank You’ to the 150 candidates who created the most practical and sincere “handbook” about their wishes and expectations for the School Management. It was not only about demonstrating the critical thinking and bravery commonly seen of Dewey students, what the school finds most proud of is that through impressive ideas about charity activities, environmental actions, third language learning, book exchanges, etc., our students naturally showed the core values of Dewey students, which are Integrity, Generosity, Passion and Lifelong Learning.
Once again, may all of our Little HOS of The Dewey Schools always promote the spirit of initiatives, creativity and passion for exploration on their journey ahead!
