Xuhui campus was started in September 2003 with 146 students to meet the demands of our growing enrollment in Minhang.
When I joined SSIS Xuhui in August 2012, Mr Tan Thong Howe was the Assistant Principal in Xuhui. Our new initiative was Farm-to-school. As a new teacher to the school, I participated in the project wholeheartedly and passionately. It was very meaningful and I believed my Grade 5 students learnt firsthand about symbiosis and our relationship with mother earth. We reaped a bountiful harvest of cabbage at the end of the season. On 17 June 2013, we celebrated Xuhui 10th anniversary. We were proud to present a basketful of vegetables to our guest of honour, Singapore Consulate General Mr. Ong Siew Gay. There were even a few write-ups by different magazines on this special occasion.
Over the last 5 five years, I am glad to report that Xuhui system and structure have gone through rounds of review and enhancement. We have built a sound curriculum that will develop our students to be global citizens of the 21st century.
Founded in 1996, the Shanghai Singapore International School aims to develop each student into a responsible global citizen, with a strong sense of character preparing them for success in any life or career path they may choose.
