Last week three students from Dulwich College made the long journey from London to meet with students from the Dulwich College International schools.

Students Kenza, Cameron and Shehzore visited Dulwich College Shanghai, the first College established in China, where they met with IB students and were interviewed by two Year 6 students, Oscar and Ashley. They also attended some of extra-curricular activities at the College.

The three Dulwich College students came to Shanghai to take part in the Dulwich Student Leadership Conference. The conference saw students from across Dulwich College family of schools come together for two days of lectures and workshops focused on leadership and communication skills.

Kenza, the Head Boy at Dulwich College said "We have been really impressed by how friendly and kind everyone is here. There are real similarities in ethos of the schools, especially all the co-curricular activities but also some differences - being an international school and, of course, the fact that there are girls here. We are really enjoying our time here and look forward to meeting the students from all the other Dulwich College International schools later in the week."

Interview with Clarisse

How long have you studied at DCS? 
I have studied at DCS for two years - my IB years. 

What have you enjoyed about studying at DCS? 
Studying at DCS has been an amazing experience. My teachers were passionate and supportive, sparking my interest in not only the courses' content, but also on wider issues and ideas. What I also loved was the atmosphere in school: serious and hard-working in the classroom, and fun and relaxed in the IB common room. This balance made studying at DCS truly enjoyable. Moreover, I loved being able to interact and work with peers and teachers from all over the world, as every individual's unique background and experiences contributed to the creation of very insightful discussions and debates.  

Another great memory was our Graduation. The singing with the DUCKS children as well as the clapping and cheering from Junior and Senior students while we toured the school brought our school community together and illustrated DCS's collective spirit. 

What are your fondest memories? 
Something I will always remember was an experiment we carried out in Biology class, were we used micropropagation to clone cauliflower. Being able to use my knowledge of cell division and plants in this real life investigation was exciting and extremely interesting.

What subjects did you study at IB? 
I studied Higher Level Geography, Biology and Economics, and Standard Level Mathematics, Mandarin ab Initio, and English Language and Literature.

Which university do you plan to attend this year?  
I will be attending the University of Oxford.

What is your chosen degree? 
My chosen degree is Geography. 

What are your plans after university?
