On 1-3 December, at the Sina 'Power of Education' event hosted by Sina Education, Harrow Beijing was awarded the '2019 International School of Reputation and Influence' prize. Mr. David Shinkfield, Head Master of Harrow Beijing, was also awarded the prize for '2019 Top 10 Head Master - International Education Impact'.
On 1 December, Mr. David Shinkfield was invited as a special guest to deliver a speech entitled 'Courage, Honor, Humility, Fellowship' on Sina Education 2019 Winter School Exhibition for international schools, sharing the important factors that make a great school and the intrinsic value of developing students' outstanding leadership qualities.
'Courage means innovating and taking risks, making the most of their opportunities, putting fear of failure to one side, and staying strong even when a situation becomes challenging. Honor means doing the right thing, having high standards, leading by example, and taking responsibility. Fellowship is building and sustaining relationships, recognizing that we achieve more together than individuals, and making positive contributions in our community. Humility is recognizing that none of us are the center of the universe. It also means always learning and admitting our mistakes.'
The Head Master explained the four core values of the Harrow Schools in the speech.
At the Sina Education 2019 Winter School Exhibition for international schools, Harrow Beijing was invited to conduct a simulated lesson, allowing students and parents to experience the classroom atmosphere and teaching methods of international schools. The Head of Early Years Ms. Knight- Benjafield and Early Years teacher Ms. Daley, made 'Walking through the Jungle' the theme of the lesson, interacting with the children. The vivid and interesting teaching enthused the children and attracted the parents' keen attention.
