Korean Studies - Educational Trips and Fun Projects


During Korean Studies this term, Year 4 and Year 5 students had an educational trip to the National Palace Museum, Sejong Story Museum and the National Folk Village. At the National Palace Museum, Year 5 students observed traditional inventions during the Joseon Dynasty and explored the museums that explain Sejong’s influence on the country. Year 4 students went to the National Folk Village to observe traditional daily life and made traditional musical instruments. The students also really enjoyed watching the farmers dance and later on watched a dynamic equestrian show which showed the defense tactics in the olden days. It was a great opportunity for the students to go outside of school and learn further about their cultural topics throughout this term. 

Year 3 and Year 6 had special projects at Dulwich College Seoul. Korean Studies and the Art Department collaborated to create a crafting session for the students. Earlier in the term, Year 6 drew four gracious plants using ink brushes and calligraphy pens in order to experience the way of cultivating one’s mind.

Last week and this week, Year 3 students experienced the process of making traditional paper (Hanji), and it came out beautifully!


Please enjoy watching the Year 4 and Year 5 trip videos that the students made.

Dulwich College Seoul Students at the Lindenbaum Harvard Festival

It was a great pleasure for representatives from Dulwich College Seoul to be involved with the 2017 Lindenbaum Harvard Festival. Heilani K, Judith L and I took part in this week-long Orchestra Festival, culminating in performances at the Goyang Arum Nori Arts Centre and in the Korean DMZ. It is a festival intended to show a desire for peace through musical performance. It was particularly special to be able to perform the traditional Korean song Arirang outdoors in the DMZ last Saturday 12 August with the full orchestra and choir facing to the North.

The festival director, Mr Hyung Joon Won, has been running this festival for many years. It is his goal to one day be able to hold joint performances with North Korean musicians.

This prominent festival was featured on several news channels, including:


Whilst mainly focused on the performances, the Festival also gave students the opportunity to work with students from the Harvard Radcliffe Orchestra; an orchestra comprised of students from Harvard University, and one of the oldest orchestras in the USA. Students had the opportunity to learn about life at a leading university, entry procedures/requirements and the importance of being able to show full involvement and leadership within extracurricular activities in interviews.

As well as the musicians from Harvard, several professional musicians from the KBS Symphony Orchestra also joined us. Our conductors were Maestros Adriel Kim and Sang Kyoung Kim. Sang Kyoung Kim is the director of the famous Chung-Choon Choir.

It was a great music festival and great way to express our desire for peace.

The Dulwich Lab

The Dulwich Lab refers to the research and development taking place across the Dulwich network. As an online publication, the Dulwich Lab will publish some of the research being undertaken across the Dulwich College International schools. The Dulwich Lab will be published quarterly and provides an opportunity for staff to share their innovative methods and research experiences with colleagues across the network and other professionals in their field.

Many staff members on our Dulwich College International campuses have been engaged in action research and the Dulwich Lab Research and Development Quarterly highlights a handful of these research projects. Action research is the most powerful form of professional development, helping to promote self-reflection, to stimulate ideas and to develop shared best practice, and all of this, of course, finds expression in an improved learning experience for our students.

Diversity - Paul Jarman


It was with great pleasure that we welcomed the well-known Australian Composer and Choral Director, Paul Jarman, to Dulwich College Seoul last week on 1-2 June 2017.

He spent two days working with our students leading up to a fun assembly performance last Friday. Our Junior Choir members in Year 3 and Year 4 had the pleasure of working on The Captain’s Tale, one of Paul’s songs about ghostly pirates and other nautical themes. The Choir members from Year 5 and Year 6 enjoyed singing Icarus, retelling the Greek Myth of Icarus who was given the freedom to fly with wings of wax and feathers. The students then combined to perform a traditional Australian song and dance from the Aboriginal tribe close to Paul’s home town. Having only two days to learn the songs, I feel the students did especially well in their performances.

Paul also gave lessons to Year 5 and to several Senior School music students. The Year 5 classes played several fun musical games, and learnt a song in an Aboriginal dialect from one of the islands above the Northern Territories. Paul also brought in several of his own instruments from around the world, including a Chinese Reed Flute and several different sizes of Irish Whistles. The students showed a great interest in these as well as Paul’s career playing them on soundtracks of various famous films.

Paul’s daughter, Ruby, also came to Dulwich College Seoul. She was an amazing musician herself and helped her father run the classes/rehearsals. She was particularly good at the more complicated rhythm and action games that the students had the opportunity to try. Paul also asked me to mention the accompanying skills of our very own Ms Hyewon Park. He was very impressed with her pianistic abilities and the way she adapted to each new game and piece without additional rehearsals.

On behalf of the College, I would like to thank Paul and Ruby for their visit.
