The clock is ticking towards the New Year and in the spirit of reflecting on the year that has passed and thinking about the changes they wish to make for the future, we asked students from Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong and Concordia International School Shanghai to tell us their 2018 resolutions.
Ranging from academic achievement, athletics and musical performances to family and enhancing their culinary skills, these resolutions are an eye-opener into the lives of the future generation.
To start us off, Urban Family’s number one resolution – 'Stick to our New Year’s resolutions!'
Next year, I want to try and be a better person by helping people from all over the world. I want to try and help everyone from the top to the bottom of my heart!
-Sara Capelli, Age 8, Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong
My new year’s resolution is to work harder at developing my skills of story writing. I love learning, especially English and I want to be the best writer I can be.
- Zora Fan, Age 9, Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong
My goal for 2018 is to aim to be awesome! I want to become better at helping my parents around the house and to be a better big brother to my little brother Alexander.
-Sebastian Wessels,Age 8, Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong
In 2018, I am going to promise these things. I am going to think about sustainable development, by using less water and recycling bottles from our pieces of beautiful land. I want to make the world a better place.
- Brain Pun, Age 9, Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong
In 2018, I promise to read more books that can help guide me to think about UNICEF’s global goals. We are thinking about sustainable development in our school and I want to play a part in helping the world be a better place!
-Dafni Tsatsaros, Age 8, Nord Anglia International School Shanghai, Pudong
At the 2017 Youth Global Leadership Summit at Concordia, I was inspired to hear Chris Koch, who has no limbs say, “A smile can save someone’s life.”This has inspired my New Year’s resolution, which is to smile more! Smiling more can not only encourage me, but it can encourage others as well. I think it will make me a more cheerful person and will make others happy.”
