A Wisdom in Action Trip to the National Museum of China | 国家博物馆启智之旅

Knowledge, experience, and reflection are three key concepts embedded in our school vision—Wisdom for Life. We believe experiences are central to our educational philosophy. Schools should exist to provide economically useful skills in numeracy and literacy, and moreover, to produce civilized young men and women who appreciate the arts and culture.


We believed this exhibition, A History of the World in 100 Objects, was educational and meaningful, not only because it was a collaboration between the National Museum and one of the most prestigious museums in the world—The British Museum—but also because the 100 objects displayed let us see how humans have evolved through different perspectives:  globalization, civilization, communication and interaction.  On May 31st, under the guidance of Mr. Andrew Zhang, Ms. Katy Wang and Miss Dongxin Li our students explored the 100 selected objects in history, with activities designed through our Six Ways of Learning.
