仁爱·天下 | 纪念宋庆龄诞辰130周年,宋庆龄学校第十一届国际艺术节在上海大剧院隆重举行!



"We gather in spring and set off from under the sun; Madame Soong Chingling sows the seeds of love, let the dreamy years bloom with colourful flowers."

一首由 868 名中外学生演唱的校歌《我们在春天里集合》,驱散疫情的阴霾,迎接温暖的新生,拉开宋庆龄学校第十一届国际艺术节的序幕。

The show starts with the harmonious melody of the School Anthem, "We Gather in Spring", which was sung in unison by all 868 students. This beautiful tone dispelled the gloomy haze of the epidemic and welcomed in the warmth of new life, officially marking the opening of the 11th International Art Festival of Shanghai Soong Ching Ling School.








This year coincides with not only the 130th anniversary of the birth of Mme. Soong Ching Ling, but also the 85th anniversary of the founding of China Welfare Institute as well as the 15th anniversary of the founding of Shanghai Soong Ching Ling School. During this unique period, all teachers and students of SCLS paid their highest respects to Mme. Soong Ching Ling with their most cherished Art Festival, expressing their deep remembrance of her glorious ideology and great achievements.

Stay / Change

仁者爱仁 同舟共济



In the past three years, after shouldering through the challenges brought by the pandemic, the teachers and students of the SCLS community faced their difficulties head-on. No matter where we were, we held our hands and linked our hearts, embracing each other with a kind and loving heart. 


After one year's absence, the long-awaited Art Festival was brought forth at last by the joint efforts of all teachers and students, and it proved to be a magnificent feast of art the likes of which we have never seen before.


Combining elements of China and the world, East and West, history and the future, the children gathered on the stage with no regard toward nationality, race, or color. At this moment, everyone truly felt the bliss of being together through thick and thin, and it is a given that in the future, this warm feeling would eventually become the strength that keeps our children moving forward.


Symphony, Ballet, Kunqu Opera, Peking opera, and folk music created splendid sparkles when merged together。

World / Future

胸怀天下 缔造未来


The children vividly portrayed the "idol" that inspired them - the Chinese women's volleyball team. 38 years ago, when the Chinese women's volleyball team won the world championship for the first time, the nation was overwhelmed with pride and millions of viewers wept in joy. This year, the Chinese women's volleyball team successfully restored their former glory by defending its title in the 13th Women's Volleyball World Cup competition with an impressive eleven consecutive wins. 


The team demonstrated grit, unity, and cooperation, and represented the true spirit of patriotism as they tenaciously and courageously fought for the rise of our country. With today's vigorous performance, the children not only paid tribute to their heroines, but also expressed their excitement to the bright future waiting to be forged by their own hands!



The grand show of the festival - "Madame Soong Ching Ling and the Children" - is a tribute offered directly to Madame Soong Ching Ling herself. 


Our young performers brought us back to the turbulent times of war. While Mme. Soong was busy with international diplomacy, she was also deeply concerned about the children who were displaced by the war, providing them with both material security and spiritual sustenance, so that they could see the hope of the future. 

- 胸怀天下 -


Through the artistic form of theatre performance, the actors conveyed Mme. Soong Ching Ling's kind heart and peace-loving ideals to our younger generation, and deeply impressed the audience with their solemn eyes, sincere expressions, and devout performance.


"Give Children the Most Valuable Things." Mme. Soong Ching Ling planted the seeds of love in the hearts of our children, loved each child, respected each child's personality, appreciated each child's efforts, and immersed children in such an atmosphere of love gained a sense of security, vitality, and happiness that supported his or her life. Such is the theme of the SCLS Art Festival, "Benevolence and Love · All over the World ".
