biss-puxi-wwfAs part of the extensive array of Christmas celebrations at The British International School Shanghai, Puxi (BISS Puxi), it has always been a tradition for the school to purchase a small gift for each of the children. This Christmas, instead of receiving, BISS Puxi’s children and families embraced the idea of doing something for others. They had the very special opportunity to partner WWF China and help the students understand the gift of giving whilst raising awareness of the great work that this fantastic organisation is doing on their behalf.

BISS Puxi was the first school in China to take part in their ‘adopt an animal’ scheme. On behalf of the students, the school sponsored one of five endangered species for each of the school’s 44 classes. On 14 December, WWF program officers visited the school to present each of the classes with a soft toy to represent the animal they have sponsored. The range of species included a Panda, a Tiger, a Snow Leopard, an Orangutan and the Asian Elephant. Each class was provided with details regarding the plight of their animal and how their sponsorship will help, and the students are encouraged to be more ecologically aware in their actions and studies.

To foster and encourage this, each class will have the opportunity to raise awareness of the plight of their animal to the wider school community and to raise funds to help protect and preserve the future of the species through things such as dress up days and video diaries. 

“I am very proud that BISS Puxi is involved in such a great project with such a prestigious organisation as the WWF and would like to thank our parental community for their generosity and support for the project.

The WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature) is one of the world’s largest and most respected independent organizations dedicated to the conservation of nature. Their philosophy of ‘learning by doing’ is well matched to our approach at BISS Puxi and the relationship will help us deliver on our mission of ‘Inspiring learners, shaping destinies and changing the world’,” said Jared Nolan, Head of Primary at BISS Puxi.
