BEIJING, June 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Harrow Beijing, a subsidiary of the four-century-old Harrow School London, has launched The Harrow Cubs Football Club, a cartoon series featuring six characters who illustrate Harrow's educational ethos, which has cultivated inspiring leaders such as Winston Churchill, Pandit Nehru and King Hussein of Jordan.
The series follows the exploits of the six members of the Harrow Cubs Football Club -- Responsible Ryan, Determined Dora, Creative Colin, Teamwork Tom, Positive Pam and Kind Katie. The six lion cubs, modeled after real-life students at Harrow Beijing, embody the six attributes that define Harrow's core value of "Leadership for a better world." Published during the 2018 World Cup season on WeChat, China's most popular social media platform, it has gone viral within just a few hours.
"Being 'educated' in today's global context requires much more than just good examination results," said David Shinkfield, Head Master of Harrow Beijing. "The stories presented in the Harrow Cubs Football Club series provide a visual reference for our students that is unique to Harrow, and will reaffirm to them the concept that anything is possible if you apply the appropriate mind-set."
"In addition to academic excellence, the pursuit of knowledge and its application with compassion, the challenge of persevering and 'never giving up' when life gets tough, and the joy of participating in a full and positive way within a community, are qualities that typify a Beijing Harrovian," Shinkfield continued.
