We were delighted to welcome the Whiffenpoofs from Yale University to Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi this week. The Whiffenpoofs are the world’s oldest a capella group and their tradition of excellence shone through in their community concert on Tuesday. Our students enjoyed the opportunity to watch a high quality performance but they also valued the opportunity to listen to the Whiffenpoofs talk about their passion for music and find out about how they balance this passion with their academic studies. The members of the Whiffenpoofs spent dedicated time with our Senior School students to share their personal journey from high school to university. They talked about exam stress, applying for university and choosing a major. More importantly they encouraged our students to follow their passion and make time to fit this into their schedule. At Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi we are committed to giving our students bespoke personal opportunities like this. Our students are individuals not numbers. This builds self-confidence and a strong sense of belonging.
