Following the success of last year’s Fayre, Wellington College International Shanghai was proud to hold its second Summer Festival on 28 May. Led by a committee comprising Friends of Wellington (FOW) and staff, this year’s Summer Festival provided opportunity for the Wellington community to celebrate its pupils’ creativity and to share the Wellington spirit in a relaxing environment.

In the Activity Zone, children enjoyed a wide variety of games and activities offered by Pre-Prep and Prep school teachers, parents and vendors. The Sports Zone with its traditional bouncy castles, obstacle course and basketball hoops was one of the most popular places for children. A selection of international cuisine was offered in the College dining hall, where people enjoyed the food while being entertained by fabulous stage performances given by Wellington music ensembles, groups and bands. In the Arts Zone, children could try screen printing, bamboo handcraft and drawing, and discover a collection of artworks from pupils showcasing the achievements of Wellington’s arts program.

At the end of the day, the summer festival culminated in the charity raffle draw, which collected over 35,000 RMB to support the FOW’s chosen charity, Mifan Mama. This achievement together with other funds raised on the day, meant that FOW would be donating a 40,000 RMB cheque.

Gerard MacMahon, Master of the College, said: “The day was a great showcase for the cultural and creative talents at Wellington, as well as a celebration of our rapidly growing community.” The summer festival aimed to bring closer the members of the Wellington community, but also to enrich the relationship between Wellington and the broader Shanghai community.
