In the early days of January 2018 our Music, Dance & Drama departments started to prepare a musical concert called “We are the World” to celebrate our Global citizenship school ethos and values. Students from Year 1 – 3 worked incredibly hard at their singing and dancing skills and started to explore the process involved in creating a performance!
Our students were exposed to music, language and cultural dance styles from all over the world. Through musical theatre our students were given the opportunity to sing and dance on stage and gain a very important life skill: Self-confidence!
On May 31 2018 the “We Are the World” concert took the audience on a beautiful journey. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed watching the children on their imaginary flight from China all the way to New York and beyond – visiting places such as France, Scotland, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Africa and Japan. Each and every item gave the audience a taste of the International cultures we embrace at YCIS.
The finale with all our students singing “We are the World” and waving their flags certainly brought a tear to the eye… Bravo YCIS Chongqing!
