For Wahaha Schools Hangzhou, this year’s Winter Show was somewhat special. Due to a new wave of COVID-19 that hit the city of Hangzhou just as the Spring Festival was approaching, the Show had to be postponed.
And finally, the long-awaited 8th Winter Show kicked off in the early spring of 2022.
Innovation means breaking down biases and reshaping oneself, just like when one is on stage, one can be in the field on a spring day, play different characters from different classic stories, or perform a lively street dance.
Embarking on a quest to search for our deepest curiosity…
When we look up at the sky, we are sowing seeds of curiosity that will grow on this land.
This splendid Winter Show is a precious gift that this spring presents to our kids.
No matter how high a mountain is, It’s no higher than the climber that conquers it.
Students in collaboration with teachers designed every Winter Show performance. This year there was no exception. It was a great way to showcase our IB-mindedness and stands in contrast with the traditional way of organizing a school performance!
All the homeroom teachers and specialist teachers (Music, Art, STEAM, PE) were there to guide and teach our students how to create and design their own performances. In PYP this was part of their unit of inquiry. Many classes made their own props and costumes, they chose their own songs and created their own choreography. Many classes created their own script and directed their own plays.
Throughout the whole winter show process, students learned what they can achieve as one and how to cooperate with others and help each other to be creative and successful! We are preparing our students to be future team players and leaders!
It’s the fifth year of the Winter Show, we are dreaming bigger and bolder.
This year, our show’s theme is “Once Upon a Time”.
We travel through time, into the wonderland of kids’ imagination and magically encounter the fantastical characters in fairy tales.
As a farewell greeting to 2017, Wahaha Schools held its 3rd Annual Winter Show entitled “We are the Word” on December 21st 2017. In a celebration of diversity and inclusiveness, all parents were invited to come and enjoy our students’ unique interpretations of the theme “To live, To love, To Laugh”.
