Having been an educator for more than 40 years, I have always dreamed of setting up an international school that respects the principles of education, stresses all-round development of students, and offers small class sizes and individualised and diverse instruction. With the founding of Nanwai King’s College School Wuxi, the dream I have cherished for decades has finally become a reality.
I hope pupils of our school will develop the following qualities:
- A command of foreign languages. Being able to speak a foreign language opens the door to the outside world. It is the foundation of international competitiveness.
- Integration of arts and science. Our pupils will combine the spirit of science and the spirit of humanism across their studies.
- Mental and physical harmony. Harmony is a key element of traditional Chinese culture. An individual can take responsibility only when he or she has both a healthy body and an independent mind.
- The development of individual interests. We encourage creative innovation, bold thinking and the development of character in our pupils.
I hope that through academic studies and co-curricular activities, pupils at Nanwai King’s College School Wuxi are inspired to find goals that they pursue with lasting passion and deep conviction, pursuits that lead them to happy and joyful lives.
