This afternoon we recorded an excellent podcast with the students and their supervisors from the MUN Team.

Mrs Maria Chaytor and Ms.April D

Our students Bhumija, Khushi, Jessie, Jessica from Grades 9-11 spoke excellently about the Model United Nations Conference that they attended last weekend in UISZ Guangzhou.

Bhumija - who is President of MUN at SWIS spoke passionately about topics such as Indigenous Rights that were debated during the conference.

We concluded the podcast with a very brief (far too brief) interview/interrogation of Ms.Dalbello and Mrs.Chaytor who gave us some background information about themselves.

We hear the heart warming...story of how Mrs.Chaytor met and fell in love with Mr.Robert Chaytor....many, many, many years ago!

We hope you enjoy the show!

We are joined in the studio by SWIS Teacher Jaikala Prasad (DP Physics and MYP Science) who tells us some background information about herself in the first part of the show. We also hear about her home city Mumbai, what she values and is passionate about in life.

In the second part of the show we hear about the upcoming TEDx event at SWIS on the 23rd March at 11am. This is the very first TEDx event at SWIS after Jaikala secured a license for our school. It promises to be an amazing event.

The event will need school wide support and Jaikala is currently liaising with the Marketing, Logistics, Music, Design and IT Departments as well as the SLT to make this event a huge success. She is looking for volunteers to help out with the event. More information to follow after the Chinese New Year Holiday.

We hope you enjoy the show and that you will support Jaikala in making the TEDx event at SWIS an event to remember for years to come!

There's only one topic on the student's lips this week and it is Basketball.

Charlie and Vivien join Mr.Youngman in the studio!

With yet another victory by the outstanding, athletic and student basketball team over the ageing, crippled and sometimes blind basketball teachers of SWIS, the students can rightly declare themselves as the KINGS/QUEENS of the basketball courts of SWIS!!!

Well done students!

A special shout out to the referees Mr.Chaytor who got a 10/10 rating and Mr.Youngman who got a less than impressive 6/10 rating.

We hear about basketball teams at SWIS and their development over the past few years and also their recent games.

In the second of our series of Movember Podcasts we were joined by Patrick Mc Donagh, from the SWIS PE Department. Alongside him was Phenix, a very happy parent of two SWIS children and Gary Isse from Shekou Daily.

Phenix, provided a delicious Hamburger lunch today for the 17 Movember Men at SWIS courtesy of Xpats Village Pub HuangGang Village. We are very greatful of his generous donation to the SWIS Teachers in aid of Movember.

Matthew Franklin, another one of our SWIS Teachers joined the show to stress the importance of regular check ups for men. He told us how during Movember last year he went for a health check up and discovered that he had pre-cancerous cells. His story is very interesting and a timely reminder of the importance of looking after your health.

Finally, we hear from Gary, who reminded us of the Movember event at Terrace on 30th November where people can donate to charity and get their mustache shaved.

We will also be meeting on 01 December at Evil Duck in Fumin (not Futian MTR Robert) for the end of November SWIS Party. More details to follow....

To donate to our team https://moteam.co/swis-teachers-1?mc=1

We had a very special Movember Podcast at SWIS today promoting the wonderful cause that 17 teachers at SWIS are participating in and accepting donations from the extended SWIS community.

Look out for posters and banners around the school for more information on donating to this worthwhile charity.

We were very lucky to have Gary from Shekou Daily on the show who is promoting our charitable efforts at SWIS (including Movember and Captivating International) to the wider community through their official Wechat Account (ShekouDaily).

Gary has also brought along a number of sponsors who will feed the 17 SWIS Movember participants each week with Pizza! This week we had Sally from The Terrace who joined Gary. They are also supporting Movember and running a number of events throughout the month to raise cash; listen to the show for more details!

On the remaining Fridays at SWIS, the Movember 17 will be receiving Pizza from Kafe Kitchen and Xpats Bar and Grill. Thank you to both sponsors.

We will be running events including 'MO' face painting and the selling of MO's for students and parents at the end of the month.....listen next week for more details!

Finally; Mr.Ringrose has vowed to help the cause on this day by donning a pink moustache.
Thank You Mr.Ringrose.

We hope you enjoy the show; join us next week for more updates from Mo participants at SWIS.
