Last Sunday 13th October, families and friends flocked to THE PLACE to take part in Shanghai Family's 9th International School Expo and first International Arts Festival; co-hosted by Shanghai Family, Parents&Kids and HuMaNiuWa. Aimed at providing parents with the necessary resources and guidelines they need to decide on where to begin/ continue their children’s education, the international school expo is the perfect place for any family living in Shanghai to begin their search.

Over the course of the day, the event had attracted over 3,000 people with about twenty schools, medical service providers and sports trainers in attendance. It was a bright, sunny day packed with fantastic performances from some of our sponsors and students including songs, dances, and eye-catching sports activities.






In the months leading up to the event, all participants worked tirelessly to prepare materials, programmes, and activities to ensure a fun, educational day was enjoyed by all. Participants included international schools, bilingual schools and kindergartens, alongside other well-known sports education institutions and some of Shanghai’s best health and wellness service providers.

To provide a clearer insight into the world of international education, representatives of the city’s schools effortlessly answered any and all public questions regarding their curriculum, values, benefits, and facilities. Families were also afforded a unique opportunity to speak directly with medical professionals from some of Shanghai’s most esteemed hospitals to gain vital information on family-related healthcare services available in the city.
