Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong held Founder’s Day 2019 on Saturday 1 June. It was a fun-filled afternoon honouring our founder - Edward Alleyn. The whole Dulwich Pudong community was celebrating 400 years of our founding school in London, Dulwich College as well as DCSPD's 16 anniversary this year.
The day started with the excellent “World Percussion Ensemble”. Attendees were all extremely impressed with the Performing Arts that were showcased by our talented students. Senior School Rock Bands, Senior School rendition of ‘Peter Pan” and DUCKS Choir, all took place throughout the afternoon.
Also inside, children enjoyed the Mini Golf Practice, Baby Ball Pool, Duck Pond, Double Table Tennis, Table Hockey, Dulwich Fencing Display and different College Service Projects!
Meanwhile, outside children had fun playing on the Snowman Slide, jumping on the surf rider, having fun in the Pinwheel Playground and team building activities with parents and friends.
In the Sports Centre Gym, Dulwich fencers were on piste with courage and pride to demonstrate what they have learned in the fencing CCA. Audiences all enjoyed it!
The highlight of the entertainment was the one and only Dulwich Dog Show. After 4 rounds of competition, 7 year old Poddle – Buffy once again won the "Best in Show" award.
The day culminated with a stunning Finale Concert and a dazzling light show! The Founder's Day 2019 successfully closed with the music of "Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1" with waves of applause from the audience.
