“Bilingual Learners Today, International Talents Tomorrow”
Invitation for the Quality Education Congregation in Shanghai
I am writing in the capacity as Chief Principal of Victoria (China) Education Group and
Head of Academy of Victoria Shanghai Academy, and we are pleased to invite you to attend the Quality Educational Congregation in Shanghai.
The Quality Education Congregation in Shanghai is organised by Victoria (China) Education Group and Victoria Shanghai Academy, co-organised by Shanghai Pinghe Bilingual School, and has gained dedicated support from the Shanghai Society of Education. The congregation will be held at the New York University Shanghai from May 28th to 29th, 2019. The theme is “Bilingual Learners Today, International Talents Tomorrow”. The congregation brings together educators and professionals from around the world for meaningful exchange with local teachers, broadening their knowledge and understanding of the present pedagogy in early childhood and primary education.
Mr. Yin Houqing of Shanghai Society of Education, Prof. Catherine Milne of New York University, Prof. Sharon Lynn Kagan of Columbia University, and Prof. Anwei Feng of University of Nottingham Ningbo China will be leading the four main keynotes. The keynotes will cover the following topics: quality education and key competencies for learners, multilingualism and multilingual education. The primary school and kindergarten workshop will be held during parallel sessions, and followed by the principal panel discussion. On May 29th, participants will be invited for field visits to Shanghai Pinghe Bilingual School and Victoria Kindergarten (Pudong) to observe the classrooms and teaching first-hand. The congregation agenda is attached to this letter for your reference.
The congregation will also commemorate and celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Victoria (China) Education Group. Victoria (China) Education Group was the first kindergarten to offer the International Baccalaureate curriculum and bilingual learning in Mainland China. Its sister primary and secondary school in Hong Kong, Victoria Shanghai Academy, was the first school in Hong Kong to offer the ‘through-train’ curriculum providing all three IB programmes, namely PYP, MPY, and DP. With the mission to encourage continuous professional development, this congregation signifies the contribution and emphasis our organisation has on the growth of early and primary years education in China.
It would be our honor and pleasure to have your graceful attendance at the congregation.
We look forward to seeing you at New York University Shanghai in May!
