Building A Better Community
This week saw the very first ‘Parent Retreat’ at YCIS Chongqing, even though we were not able to host this event on campus due to the current restrictions, we still had lots of parents sign up for the event.
The Benefits of Learning Conferences
The buildup to a ‘Learning Conference’ can be quite a stressful time for students, parents, and teachers. For the students, this could be related to what will my parents think, have I done well enough? For parents, it can bring back memories of their own experiences, along with anxiety of how well their child is performing or behaving. For teachers, they can be concerned regards the reaction of the parent when honest feedback is given. The most important thing to remember is that Learning Conferences are an opportunity to plan for the future, what has happened in the past can’t be changed, but the future can be.
Can You Introduce Your Hometown in Chinese?
Are you interested in travelling to world renowned cities such as Los Angeles or London, perhaps you prefer travelling to destinations a little closer to Chongqing, such as Busan, Kunsan, Ulsan or Chungju, if you do, then we highly recommend you take a look at the wonderful projects from our Year 5 & 6 Chinese as an Additional Language students (CAL-Sky).
Spectacular Seasonal Showpiece
Our Secondary students have been eagerly awaiting the ‘Holiday Spectacular’ since the auditions and rehearsals began. It might have been our 5th annual show, but this year marked the first in our new auditorium. The air was thick with anticipation and excitement as the students and staff gathered ready to see some wonderful musical performances.
In a world where technology never stands still, it is imperative that our students are 21st century ready. To support with this, our Primary students have been working on Tynker. This is an online platform that students have been using to learn coding by completing fun and engaging activities to support their understanding of coding. Students have been introduced to programming concepts such as selection, sequence and iteration.
Tis the Season!
The halls were decked, and the Christmas tree was lit as a red, green, silver and gold glow surrounded our campus. Our wonderful Parent Organisation transformed the school into a winter wonderland as we welcomed the festive season!
We Are All Different
‘Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common… Celebrate it every day.’
A World Without Poverty
We were delighted to support our newly formed United Nations Committee (UNC) in holding the first of their ‘Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) events. This event took place throughout the month of November and was focused around raising awareness of world poverty.
One Kind Word
Monday marked the beginning of our Anti-Bullying Week: 'One Kind Word'. The week raises awareness toward bullying, as a school, we aim to guide and support our students so they feel empowered to understand what bullyig is and why it is important to inform adults if bullying takes place in their own lives.
