On Monday 25 March, the 2019 Dulwich Olympiad officially commenced in London with an opening ceremony at our founding school, Dulwich College.
Students from each of the schools in the Dulwich College International (DCI) network were chosen to be flag bearers for the occasion, which was attended by hundreds of students and staff, including Master of Dulwich College, Dr. Joe Spence and the Founder, Chairman and CEO of DCI, Mr. Fraser White.
Following the opening ceremony, sports students participated in a touch rugby tournament while being coached by students from Dulwich College. Artists attended masterclasses and musicians were treated to a workshop with the London Community Gospel Choir followed by rehearsals for the performance that will take place later in the week at Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Our Dehong team played well winning 3 gold, 3 silver, 1 bronze and broke two records. The Spirit of Dulwich Award was also given to Jackie W and Elsa Z for their teamwork, sportsmanship, and courage at the games.
The Olympiad is an event that encourages students to get involved in different activities, meet new people from different areas of the world and work collaboratively.
Dehong principal Mr. Jon Fei quoted, it was a very memorable event and I am incredibly proud of all those students who participated in the art, music and sports events of the Dulwich Olympiad and can't wait for the next one!
