Founder’s Day is a hallowed tradition not only at Dulwich College in London but also at its international schools. It is a day when students, staff, parents and the wider community come together to celebrate music, the arts, sport and performance. Each Founder’s Day at their core celebrate a 400 year old vision of Edward Alleyne but with their own unique twist and local flavour. In the Trinity or Summer Term of 2014, Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, and Zhuhai all joined Dulwich London in hosting some sublime performances, food and drink stalls, games and music for all to enjoy. Some of the highlights we have selected below in both moving image and photographs. In Suzhou on Saturday May 10th, the 2014 Founder’s Day was the biggest yet and although it had to be moved inside the new Senior School owing to the weather it not deter the tight-knit DCSZ community from celebrating in style. There was a packed programme of events with food stalls from 30 countries, bouncy castle, face painting, performances from local Chinese schools, traditional country dances, the Suzhou Youth Orchestra and almost 40 different vendors selling their products and services. The event finished with musical programme from Dulwich College students ending with our exciting Taiko Drummers. In Beijing Founder’s Day was also held on Saturday May 10th, the Headmaster Mr. David Mansfield concluded that DCB Founder’s Day 2014 was: “... a triumph of all that Dulwich stands for – community, engagement, fun, music, sport and drama, sociability and talent to burn.” A key feature at Beijing’s founder’s Day is the final of Dulwich Idol- the school talent quest- and parent-manned food stalls representing international cuisines from all over the world. A gallery of the Beijing founder’s Day is located below and the film of the day’s highlights can be found here. In Shanghai, weeks of continual rain and the oncoming Plum rain season had organisers a little nervous but the weather held and the crowd enjoyed a balmy afternoon and evening of music on the main stage as well as food stalls, rides, and performances. The music was particularly fantastic this year with a rousing rendition of a more than 100 voice choir and 50 piece orchestral playing “God Save the Queen@ leading into a spectacular fireworks display.
