We Want to Hear from You!

An experience can be enhanced through reflection. Your fun is doubled by sharing your stories with others. Also, by sharing with people and learning about others, we can develop a broader outlook on life and learn more about the good things that life has to offer.

With that in mind, we would love to take this opportunity to invite our readers to share with us what you did with your vacation. How did you spend the almost two-week long vacation? Did you do anything fun? Read anything interesting? See any movies that blew your mind? Feel free to share all these experiences and more with us! We can’t wait to hear from you!

Our Secret Garden in Sanlitun Campus

Hidden deep inside our Sanlitun Campus is an urban garden, a small but beautiful secret space for children to explore nature.

In this secret garden, children play and plant throughout four seasons, establishing close connections with nature. In this process, they get a unique chance to practice Daystar Academy’s core values and expand knowledge about the world.

We would like to share with you this special place, as seen through the lens of the garden founder, our English teacher Mr. James Thomason, who has so many garden stories to share with you.

This article goes beyond introducing a nature-based education program and allows you to draw insightful perspectives from a passionate educator.
