We know that the past weeks have been a difficult time for everyone in the Dulwich International High School Suzhou community – students, staff, and parents. Some families may be dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak quite well, but others are probably feeling anxious, scared, upset, or confused by daily news – these reactions are very normal and to be expected. It has also been a challenge to rapidly adapt to a new online learning environment and ensure that your children continue to make progress. We have always believed deeply in the importance of Wellbeing at Dulwich International High School Suzhou; the current and ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has only made this clearer.
