Sharing by alumni and parents
“Courage, competition, and sense of honor…that’s the spirit of college education in my knowledge, and in this regard Fettes College has demonstrated it amply. Also, it offers a boarding school education from which we could really see these children are growing.”
On the question of “Why choose Fettes College”, a parent representative gave an affirmative answer based on personal experience – the parent’s twin children had studied at Fettes College.
As Harvey, an alumni representative, put it, “At Fettes College, teachers and schoolmates are members of our extended family. The sense of responsibility comes naturally.” Fettes College’s long history – it is 150 years old – and its unique educational system have been solidly endorsed by students and parents. They are indeed the foundation of the College. At the event Fettes College Guangzhou also presented the “School Ambassador” honors to alumni.
Over the College’s long history there have been countless high-achievers who could proudly call it their alma mater. They include, among others, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Professor Angus Deaton, recipient of Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 2015 and David Ogilvy, the “Godfather of Advertising” and founder of Ogilvy & Mather.
As in the case of Fettes College in Edinburgh, the spirit of house boarding will be passed on to Fettes College Guangzhou. The latter will ensure students possess the same spirit and build a network with college alumni throughout the world.
Together with its first batch of students, Fettes College Guangzhou looks set to write the first chapters of its culture and history.
