“What is needed for successful teaching is not coercion, but the stimulation of students’ interest” said Tolstoy. At WASCZ, stimulating our pupils’ interests is at the forefront of what we do when teaching. Our children learn by playing and play by learning.
On a balmy September Sunday morning, Grade 5 and Grade 4 footballers set off for Vigour Sports in Changzhou for the first football fixture since Chinese New Year, to play Victory FC, an out-of-school team made up of pupils from the locality.
Sport continues to be a vitally important part of our school curriculum, with key sports like rugby, football, netball and hockey flourishing, and our pupils having the chance to test themselves against other schools throughout the region.
