Organised collaboratively by the University of Edinburgh and the Edinburgh Chinese School, the Happy STEAM 2023 Summer Camp offers a sustainability-themed programme:
Innovations that made us: Seeing the World through the Five Elements of Nature

Children will learn Mandarin and explore human and nature relationship through indoor and outdoor activities. Each day will be themed around a different topic in Nature and human innovation. They will visit museums and galleries in Edinburgh (e.g. National Museum of Scotland, Modern Art Gallery, Writer’s Museum). They will get hands-on and crafty, as they learn about history, architecture and transportation.
Details: Activities runs between 10am with drop off starts from 9am. Pick up is between 4.30pm-5.30pm. £55 per child, for five days. Each child should bring their own lunch and snacks.
Periodically Police Scotland circulates security advice to different community groups during significant dates throughout the year for varying communities. During this year we have sent out security advice to the Muslim community around the Hajj period, the Jewish community around High Holy Days and the wider community around the festive holiday period. As such we are aware that February sees the Chinese community celebrate Chinese New Year and therefore would like you to share the following advice at a time when members of the community may be away from their homes or businesses for unusually extended periods of time.
On 17th July, children, parents and teachers from our school participated in Edinburgh Festival Carnival Parade. On 30th July, they went to a party at Chinese Consulate General Edinburgh hosted by Consul General Pan Xinchun.
There is a two-day Chinese Singing and Dancing Summer Camp in Edinburgh. It is organised by China’s State Council Overseas Chinese Affairs Office.
