Awards, awards, awards
After the virtual awards of last year, we were able to take one more step back to normality this year by hosting our Primary & Secondary awards in front of an actual audience. The children themselves were the audience and they had the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the successes of themselves and their peers.
Time to move up!
As our Year 6 students graduated from Primary School, they were filled with a jumble of emotions. Excitement that they had reached such a milestone, pride that they were soon to be one of the ‘big kids’ and, of course, nervousness that the next stage of school would be different to what they were used to!
Preparing for the Years Ahead
From June 14-18, Year 11’s completed a 4-day program to help them prepare for their IBDP studies in the next academic year.
Creative Writing Competition
Recently, Yew Chung and Yew Wah students were invited to take part in a Creative Writing Competition. The competition was created and sponsored by the Yew Chung Education Foundation Curriculum and Professional Development Division in Hong Kong. This year, over 1300 students from across our foundation of schools took part. Twelve teachers from within those schools volunteered to judge the quality of the writing. On the announcement of the results, there were 49 honorable mentions and 5 winners across the four age groups. We are proud to share that 3 YCIS Chongqing students were among the honorable mention winners, these were Ryan Chen, Ruby Rao, Year 9 and Matthew Leano, Year 12.
Twinkle, twinkle, little stars!
It has taken a while, but finally our Primary students were able to take to the stage and perform in a musical concert. The audience were a little younger than expected as parents were unfortunately replaced by some of our lower Secondary students.
Year 13 Graduation Ceremony
Graduation day is a time of mixed emotions; excitement, pride, relief, along with nervousness at what the future may hold. It may not be at this immediate moment, but chances are our students will look back at their time in Secondary School with fond memories and this quote my help you in understanding why…
What Does Science Labs Offer Students?
Schools shape the world of tomorrow. Today’s students will enter various professions, some of which haven’t even been invented yet, one role we will always need to create is scientists of the future. Whilst teachers and families play a fundamental part in developing these roles, supporting and guiding students along their journey, the educational environment is crucial to enhance the learning experience.
For a Better Planet
During Year 1 Chinese lessons the students have been learning through the topic of ” Sharing Our Planet”. The students discovered the differences between natural and manmade resources, they also gained an understanding of how these resources affect people’s life and the planet we live on.
Staff Appreciation Day
As we approach the end of the academic year, the Parent Organization would normally organize a ‘Staff Appreciation Luncheon’ to express sincere thanks to the entire YCIS Chongqing staff for their efforts and dedication throughout the year. This year, due to the impact of the pandemic, our Parent Organization turned this ‘annual occasion’ into an even warmer and more touching event.
