This September 10th will be the 37th Teacher’s Day in China. We, as teachers, are proud to be the gardeners who nurture our young VSPers’ whole-person development. All VSP teachers are committed to supporting students’ holistic development by working closely and collaboratively with parents and families and by strictly following the Ten Principles of Teacher Code of Conduct for Shanghai Schools.
Respecting teachers and valuing education is part of the core value in Chinese culture. Parents’ gratefulness for teachers’ hard work and respect for the teaching profession is understandable and appreciated. However, we strongly recommend that parents show your appreciation to the teachers in a proper way by not giving ‘gratuities, gifts, favours, services, paid meals, trips and entertainment or items of value’ to teachers.
Let us all adults- parents and teachers model integrity and good personal conduct to our young VSPers and celebrate a sound 37th Teacher’s Day at VSP!
