wellington-sh-news-01-wellingtenFirst held in the Wellington College UK, WellingTen Talks are ten-minute presentations to deliver inspiring, thought provoking ideas in a short, restricted time, highlighting ideas for further exploration and development. Sharing a wealth of experience in international education, the panel discussed the topic ‘Educating for the Future’, offering insights and opinions on which skills are the most beneficial for success in a complex global environment.

Following the first two presentations, MacMahon stressed the advantages of the Shanghai campus while talking about the importance of international education. Shanghai, as one of the most internationalized cities in China gives pupils free access to world-class culture and life style, which lays a good cognitive foundation for becoming international leaders. In addition, Wellington’s curriculum in Shanghai is designed so that all pupils become well-rounded adults, well equipped with the skills, knowledge, attitudes and values essential to meet the challenges of the society in the 21st century.

The first of the “WellingTEN Talks” was a great success. Open to public, the talk provided people with a broad platform where educators, parents and students from wider Shanghai community had the opportunity to be inspired, to exchange and to share ideas regarding the prevailing issues in education.
