Check Out Chongqing – A Huge Success!
Active engagement of the school community is vitally important to all schools and there is no doubt that YCIS Chongqing is incredibly fortunate to have a supportive, creative and industrious parent body! This was clearly on display during the outstanding ‘Check Out Chongqing’ community event held on our YCIS campus.
On Saturday, September 24, the School welcomed over 600 parents, teachers, YCIS staff, students and visitors to an event that featured 53 vendors, representing a broad range of services from around Chongqing. From language schools, to yoga studios; from restaurants to hairdressers; from law firms to travel agents; from dentists to gymnastics for kids –we had information people need to help them enjoy life in this vibrant city. The YCIS staff band played an array of fine rock and roll tunes while guests enjoyed international cuisine, games, and activities. It was a festive mood for all!
Lucky Draw raffles were held throughout the event with prizes donated from our wonderful vendors! Besides the fun that was had, the school community raised 6756 RMB for the Seeds of Hope charity project, something YCIS Chongqing contributes to every year.
Without question, special thanks goes to the entire Parent Organization team, all volunteers, sponsors, school staff, and the school Student Council for their efforts in bringing great opportunities and fun in Chongqing to all in the YCIS community!
