Three schools in Jiading held their first new semester opening ceremony on September 1.
Jiading New Town Experimental Primary School, Jiading New Town Experimental High School and Shanghai Jiading World Foreign Language School opened their new campuses to students who are among the 120,000 or so beginning the new semester in the district.
Education is a major support for the core competitiveness of Jiading, Lu Fangzhou, director of the district, said at an opening ceremony, adding that the district will be doing its best to promote the healthy and allround development of students.
Jiading New Town Experimental Primary School will join with Penglai Road No. 2 Primary School in downtown Huangpu District in implementing the star education courses of the latter. Parents of the students at the Jiading school expressed their support of the philosophy of “letting you foresee the future in childhood.”
The new Jiading New Town Experimental Primary School will develop a new series of courses with the name of “new town” with Penglai Road No. 2 Primary School, aiming to cultivate a habit, an interest and a vision for students in practice.
The school will also set up mini courses in philosophy, Chinese, math and English to assist the children’s everyday studies.
Students in the newly opened Jiading New Town Experimental High School have the chance to join STEM courses from Datong Junior High School in Huangpu District. Huangpu, with its rich education resources, plans to send 10 experts in course setup and research to provide guidance for the new school.
