Jenny wrote this blog entry in the gorgeous – Victoria Shanghai Academy in Hong Kong and enjoyed the view from probably has the best playground view in the world (and that is said from a woman who played queenie, queenie, who’s got the ball with children in Rio – under the glare of the outstretched arms of the Statue of Christ on the mountain!)
I wrote this blog in a gorgeous Hong Kong school – Victoria Shanghai Academy, probably has the best playground view in the world (and that is said from a woman who played queenie, queenie, who’s got the ball with children in Rio – under the glare of the outstretched arms of the Statue of Christ on the mountain!)
The Victoria Shanghai Academy is right next to Victoria Harbour where luxury liners purr along next to little junks full of fish you will see from the photos that puppets, parachutes and fun are part of the universal imagination, the language of happiness!
The children are just wonderful, up for any opportunities to chat, debate, and reflect, indeed to fully engage with all the ideas I brought to the circle, in fact they soaked them up faster than I could produce them! It’s a huge school and the building was intrusive so I introduced the ‘hands up for silence’ approval. The head teacher has just emailed me to say its working like a dream. There is also a photo of me working with the parents.
It was a great idea on behalf of the school – they all shared the same ideas for golden rules, brain boosting games, and then ‘top tips for tough love’ that they could do and support all the great work being done by the teachers… I really enjoyed myself and reenergised, re-inspired myself by the enthusiastic warmth and positivity of the teachers, parents and senior managers…. Also very restored by endless street walks that yielded the street massage, dim sum and handfuls of gorgeous twinkly jewels, all sparkling in the sun. For me it was a work trip made in heaven!
