Programming Challenge Accepted and Completed
YCIS Chongqing is proud to acknowledge the impressive achievement of five "tech-minded" students, including Jack Hayley, Matthew Leano, Dain Woo, Chris Lee and Orlando Ortega who undertook the Cisco Python Essentials course, which is a programme widely recognised the technology industry. Endorsed by the Python Institute and aimed at tertiary education students, our five students demonstrated their impressive computing skills and, despite the isolation during school closures, were able to successfully complete the course.
‘Portrait Cos Challenge’ Proved to be Great Fun
It is incredible to think that ECE have now completed our 14th week of e-learning due to the school closure as the pandemic continues around the world. While our students are unable to busy themselves in the school’s bright and busy learning environment, engaging with their peers and teachers in face to face activities, it is clear to us all that they are enjoying their e-learning.
Campus ‘Buzzing’ as Students Return
After welcoming the Year 11 and Year 13 students as the first cohort to return to campus since the school closed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we welcomed all students from Year 4 to Year 13 back to school from the 27th April. Our students embraced this opportunity, greeting their peers and teachers with beaming smiles, eagerly engaging in the wonderful learning opportunities for which they have yearned, on campus and with their friends.

Back to School

After numerous Government Departmental campus tours, as part of the school’s H&S evaluation, YCIS Chongqing finally received confirmation that the school will reopen on Monday April 20th, for Year 11 / 13 students and teachers. We are certain that news of the school re-opening will be well received by all community members.
Creative Healing: Relaxation
Relaxation can be defined as a lessening of or rest from work, worry, or effort. It is our body’s way of rejuvenating and resetting as it allows time for our mind and body to repair. Taking time to relax is essential to both our mental and physical health, especially during times of high stress.
Campus Shines in Readiness for Student Return
The YCIS Chongqing community is now approaching the completion of nine weeks of e-learning and we remain indebted to our students and parents for their ongoing support. Our teachers and school leaders continue to adapt and develop the programme according to the evolving needs of our families.
