Meet the Teachers
Wellington prides itself as a school that values a sense of community both within the corridors of the school, and between the staff and parents; nowhere was this more apparent than at the Friends of Wellington Meet the Teachers event on Friday night.
New and old staff gathered with Wellington parents at The Renaissance Hotel in Puxi to get to know each other. Kindly arranged by the Friends of Wellington, over 180 staff and parents mingled amongst the twinkling lights of the Shanghai skyline as the buffet was enjoyed and the wine flowed freely.
The Friends of Wellington were gathered on stage to be thanked for their very successful inaugural year: Coffee Mornings, Christmas and Halloween parties, The Summer Fayre, The International Food Fayre and Parade and not forgetting the Anniversary Ball. The speech by Master David Cook took a while, understandably!
Whilst taking in the breathtaking views, staff shared with parents their first impressions of how well their children had settled into the new academic year. It was a lovely sight to behold, teachers and parents talking and meeting for the first time informally, setting the foundations for a very successful year ahead at Wellington College International Shanghai.
