Much to the delight of all present, this year’s Spirit Day kicked off with a wonderful, colorful and energetic display of Chinese culture, in the form of the annual Dragon dance. As a beat rang out from a traditional Chinese drum, the golden dragon whirled across the school field and wove its way around groups of students who were clad in the red, white, green and blue of their house colors.
Spirit Day, which took place on 7th September this year, has become something of a tradition at TEDA International School. It’s an exhilarating way to showcase some awesome school spirit, and have a little fun with all the members of the Teda community!
With the intention of bolstering this family spirit, the whole school was divided up into fifty teams ready to play a School Spirit Trivia Game. Each group was comprised of a mélange of lower primary, upper primary, middle and high school students. These teams then needed to go around the grounds, locating and scanning QR codes, answering questions and completing a variety of tasks. Prizes in the form of books and house points were awarded to the five teams that emerged victorious. It really is rare to sees students from Kinder to Grade 12 mixing together and having so much fun, but this kind of activity brings us closer as a family and as an entire school community. What better way to celebrate Spirit Day?
