Cover Story 

A Voyage of Discovery (Pg. 5) by Daniel Eschtruth, Director of Schools at SCIS 

With the astounding growth in the consumption of social media services amongst young people within the recent, short number of years, it is more crucial than ever to take our role as educators, thoughtfully and seriously, in guiding our students in instilling confidence in themselves. 


The Arts 

Melodies in Motion: Crafting Musical Journeys at SCIS Pudong (Pg. 16) by Susan Ogletree, MYP/DP Music Teacher at SCIS Pudong 

One evening last November, a grade nine student waited anxiously in the wings of the theatre at SCIS Pudong. He was preparing to perform in the Winter Arts concert with another student in his class, a piano player and one of the best musicians in the school. Perhaps the word “anxious” isn’t quite correct because Lucas was not nervous, just excited. 


Campus Spotlights 

The Magical World of Dramatic Play: Fostering Symbolic Expression in Children (Pg. 20) by Heather Knight, Early Childhood Principal at SCIS Hongqiao 

As adults, we often marvel at the boundless imagination of children. Between the ages of two and six, youngsters possess a remarkable ability to transform living rooms into jungles, cardboard boxes into spaceships, and themselves into superheroes or mythical creatures. This is the world of dramatic play, a stage on which childhood creativity knows no bounds.
