Construction of the new Primary campus for YK Pao School is well under way and running to schedule. According to the construction timetable, YK Pao children will be able to move in for classes in September. 

ykp-n-campus-2sThe new campus is located on West Wuding Road in Changning District, near the border with Jing’an. It is a beautiful historical preservation area, and is surrounded by buildings from the 1920s and 1930s. The new campus is designed to match the traditional style of its surroundings, while incorporating modern facilities to meet the goals of providing an international standard of education.

The core principles of sustainability in the new campus design are recycling, reuse and reducing energy use. 

The new campus will offer as much green space as possible through roof gardens and green walls. YK Pao has received a generous donation from HSBC of RMB1,000,000 Yuan for a green roof, green walls and a rainwater collection system.

Suntech, a solar energy company who have a history of supporting education, have donated a miniature solar generator and laboratory. The panels will be placed on the roof. Energy will be transformed into electricity and transmitted to power the EU laboratory.

In the space between every cluster of four classrooms, there are shared ‘piazza’ areas. The ‘piazzas’ will be friendly activity areas where students learn together with students from their cluster. These areas are where students can read, discuss and present to students from outside their class.

Last but not the least, the YK Pao School swimming pool has been designed to reflect educational needs and will provide an excellent facility for students.
