Year 7 Mesoamerican Museum
The year 7 students have finished their learning about Ancient Civilizations by looking at Mesoamerica. Students were asked to create a museum display about the three major civilizations from this era; the Mayans, the Incas and the Aztecs.
Why a Global Learning Centre?
Critical literacy is an essential skill in today’s world – the ability to evaluate information and entertainment sources is something no young person should be without, and the skills that allow them to do this also allow them to play an active role in society. Our new Global Learning Centre will empower students and support teachers in this vital area.
As our Year 13 students begin their preparations for upcoming examinations, we wanted to take this opportunity to share with you how successful they have been securing university acceptances. As a school we couldn’t be prouder of our students and this has been reflected in the quality of acceptances they have secured at prestigious universities around the world.
Respect and Reflect
Learning Communities are a place for collaboration and communication. At Yew Chung International School of Chongqing, the students inspire each other to build on these important life skills.
Can You Hack it？
Throughout the first half of Semester 2, the Computer Science department has provided opportunities for our students to use their problem solving and algorithm skills.
Back on Track!
Even the rain couldn’t stop the YCIS Chongqing Sports Days taking place this year. There was much anticipation in the air from both our Primary and Secondary students as they arrived on Thursday and Friday morning for their respective Sports Days. Who was going to be the fastest, jump the highest, throw the furthest were the questions going through the minds of our most competitive students while others were simply looking forward to spending the day with their friends and trying their best in all of the competitions.
At YCIS Chongqing, our ‘Learner Profile’ supports the students to aspire to be the best learners and people they can be by understanding and developing 10 key attributes and traits.
What Will We Find out?
It was wonderful to see more students accompanying their parents to our Learning Conferences this past week. Our conferences are an opportunity for the teachers to share what the children do well, but also what they can further develop. It is important that the student, teacher and parent are all part of this process so they can celebrate accomplishments, but also to plan for their next steps in learning together.
What Will it Look Like?
Over the last few years, a new landmark has continued to grow in Chongqing and now it’s nearly ready. From the day all of the outside building work was completed, our excitement has been growing, waiting for the right time to share with you.
