At UWC Changshu China, we strive for a sporting culture in which learning from failure as well as success is central. We encourage students to take responsibility for their learning both individually and as teams through sports. We believe sports teach students life lessons and give them the opportunity to create new friendships and overcome challenges, rather than just focusing on wins or losses.

 

Basketball is one of the athletics Zhi Xing on our campus. With the last Basketball game day of the season passing on 12th of January, 2019, we are dedicating this issue to our basketball stars and their coaches. They share more about what are the benefits and challenges of being part of a team, what the sport taught them and how they learn to live UWC values through sports.

During the interview, Bruce shared the impact of his UWC experience on his studies, career and life.

On September 1st, 570 students from over 100 countries and regions at UWC Changshu China and their advisors took part in the "Changshu Challenge", one of the activities during Orientation. It is designed to help members of the community get to know Changshu, their home away from home, and also get to know each other better outside the classrooms and campus.  Following clues and instructions, students and teachers, with limited budget, explored Fangta Garden, InCity, Xingfu Temple and the Changshu Library and Museum.  It was a day of fun, bonding and meaningful discoveries.  Anesu from Zimbabwe shared her reflection on the “Chanllenge”.
