Greetings Secondary Parents

We are delighted to announce our second annual University Day at the Western International School of Shanghai!  The event will take place on Thursday, October 18 from 9:30AM-3:30PM.  This year we are bringing back the very successful US university fair from last year as well as several new universities from other parts of the world including Australia, China, and the United Kingdom.  In the afternoon, Chris Wilcox, Head of University and Careers Counselling, will update families on our university results from last year and provide an overview for university application processes in North America and Europe.  This is a drop-in event where parents are free to choose which parts of the day they wish to attend, including a parent luncheon.  The schedule and list of participating universities is below.

If you would like to participate in any part of the day, please RSVP Chris Wilcox at cwilcox@wiss.cn.

We look forward to an exciting event next week!
