I attended Concord College UK in 1998 and my experience as a former student provided the incentive for me to cooperate with Concord College as a partner when the opportunity arose for me to set up a bilingual school in in Huangpu, Shanghai’s central district, which shares the same values as Concord College and incorporates Chinese traditions as well. At Concord, we mixed with students coming from over forty different countries, and some of them were the sons or daughters of those who had previously studied there. It is this kind of inheritance of humanistic spirit that makes the school so charming. I am very grateful to have studied at a school as warm as a family and very willing to share my own experience. I feel that education of this type can indeed change people’s lives.
