Continuing the Dulwich-Dehong family's holistic education approach, Dehong's outreach programme, Qidi, is aimed at students from elementary to high school. It offers four main categories: Academics, Sport, Creativity, and Service.
We held a Qidi Open Day last Friday where parents were invited to understand the framework and structure of Qidi alongside their children. This event allowed them to directly experience the highlights of each course, aiding their children in selecting the most suitable one.
Academic - Break through cognition, expand horizons
'Yue' Reading, Mad Science, Public Speaking, Twenty-four Solar Terms, Secondary Chinese Debating Club, Kangaroo Maths Competition, Maths IB Investigations, University Subject Exploration, Fun Biology etc.
Sports - Beyond self, go forward
