How can there be peace without people understanding each other, and how can this be if they don’t know each other?

The striking feature of the UWC is that they embrace the entire world. They are unique and they are conscious of their responsibilities.

I regard it as the foremost task of education to ensure the survival of these qualities: an enterprising curiosity, an undefeatable spirit, tenacity in pursuit, readiness for sensible self-denial and above all, compassion.

Lion Dance Zhi Xing

Lion Dance Zhi Xing is an Activity Zhi Xing of Chinese Culture Programme. Lion Dance is a traditional performance combined with martial arts and dance.  It requires incredible strength and coordination of a pair of dancers. The mission of Lion Dance School Team is to promote Lion Dance as a traditional Chinese culture  among the community members.

Lion Dance is always the indispensable performance in all important school events, such as Graduation Ceremony and Chinese Cultural Evening. Participants have intensive training every week guided by professional instructors from Suzhou.

Moreover, Lion Dance Zhi Xing is also a bonding opportunity. Every training session is a good practice for perseverance, patience and teamwork.

I am always interested in Chinese traditional culture. When I saw the Lion Dance for the first time, I literally felt in love with it and I was so enthusiastic to start! It is challenging and it requires patience, commitment and…a lot of strength! It is also important to be coordinated with the other lions: the result is a wonderful teamwork! The instructors speak only Chinese, but all my teammates help me with translation and in improving my Chinese! It is an amazing experience, and I always can’t wait for the training on Tuesday evening! 我爱舞狮!
