The annual SHBS Art Festival includes rich forms of culture and art, such as singing competition, musical instrument show, drama performance, talent show, emblem design, homeroom & dorm-room creative photo show, art exhibition, etc. so that each kid can be given the opportunity to show his or her talents, enjoy themselves both physically and mentally in the activities, and keep exploring themselves and boosting their confidence.
On Feb. 24, the talent show of 2022 SHBS art festival was held in the auditorium. In addition to the wonderful programs performed by teachers and students in the auditorium, we also had the luck to see the works kids had created in their art classes during the 2022 Fall semester on one side of the auditorium. Creative homeroom and dorm-room photos had been displayed in the teaching building so that everyone could take a look at them.
At 2pm,the students and teachers got to the auditorium as planned to watch the performances.

All the students from G10.2 performed the second program :"Would You Like To Dance", a band chorus. The retro disco collided with the students’ passion wantonly, presenting us another kind of youth style.
