NBA at YCIS
Our first ever Basketball Skills Competition took place this past Saturday morning. We had 18 of our finest basketball students from Y7 to Y13 competing in 3 challenges: Key Skills, Dunking, and Shooting.
New Seeds of the Spring
An annual delight to the senses, springtime sees us emerge from the darkness of winter to enjoy brighter mornings and longer evenings. We increasingly look to spend time out-of-doors, watering seeds and patiently awaiting the arrival of more and more beautiful florals. It also reminds us that Arbor Day, the annual Tree Planting Festival begins today.
Ready, Set, Go, off to Greece
It was time for our Year 7 students to ‘go Greek, due to their learning in Humanities being focused on the Ancient Greek Olympics. This was an excellent opportunity for our students to participate in some interdisciplinary learning with the Humanities and PE Departments coming together to plan this exciting project and experience the Olympic games!
Today we are in PINK!
YCIS Chongqing held it’s annual PINK SHIRT DAY on Friday 26th February. Each member of our school community was encouraged wear pink (or a similar colour) to symbolize that we do not tolerate bullying and recognize the importance of showing kindness to everyone.
Year 11 Cancer and Health Awareness Initiative
At YCIS, we believe it is vitally important for students to have the opportunity to ‘do good’ and support their local community. Alongside this, we also want to provide learning opportunities so that students are ‘educated’ about an issue that effects millions of lives across the world.
Options Afternoon – Year 9 & Year 11
In order to prepare and support our students for their pathways into the IGCSE and IB programmes of study and guide them in the right direction for their future career aspirations, we held an options afternoon on Wednesday 24th February in the Great Hall. Due to the current restrictions, this event was only for students; we would usually invite parents, instead we have shared the relevant information via the students through our curriculum booklets and other information. It was great to see all our Year 9 and Year 11 students attend this event.
Chinese New Year Celebrations at YCIS Chongqing
As the Year of the Ox approaches, our students were eager to start the celebrations early. No matter what is going on elsewhere in the world, our focus was on providing a memorable day of celebration to honor the Spring Festival and welcome in the New Year.
On 1 Feb, several Year 8, and all Year 9-Year 11 YCIS Chongqing students competed in the United Kingdom Mathematical Trust (UKMT) – Intermediate Maths Challenge.
