Nick's Growth Story: Striving to Solve Life's Rubik's Cube

People who have met Nick before are always impressed by his positiveness and concentration,although he is just a Grade 11 student.

As a member of the Students’ Union, founder of Rubik’s Cube Club, student ambassador, an active member of social innovation programs such as Phoenix Forum, an outstanding football goalkeeper, an excellent debater of debate competitions, and a volunteer of school baseball team...

Staff Appreciation Luncheons in 2021

Daystar’s Staff Appreciation Luncheon was originally designed to guide students to express appreciation and gratitude for the care and education they receive from their teachers every day. Through this event, we also instilled Daystar’s core values—respect and care—in our students.

The Staff Appreciation Luncheon was Daystar’s very first teacher appreciation event, and it immediately became an annual tradition. Now, every year, Daystar parents and children prepare a fine luncheon or afternoon tea party on the campus for their dear teachers.
