YCIS Chongqing has welcomed our new teachers to Chongqing at the start of August, who have travelled from different schools all over the globe. This is certainly an exciting time as they familiarise themselves with ‘life’ in Chongqing and bond with their new colleagues.
It is wonderful to hear and see the enthusiasm that our new teachers bring, along with different experiences and expertise, as they begin their new learning journey. Their enthusiasm is certainly contagious as they seek answers to their many questions. Fortunately, YCIS Chongqing has a great team of colleagues, with significant local knowledge, to support our new teachers through their settling-in process. Having said that, it is a great pleasure to share with our new staff the great success our first IBDP cohort had achieved in their IB examinations, with 100% pass rate, a highest score of 43 points and an average score of 37.3 out of a possible 45!
Next week, our returning teachers will join with our new team members to engage in a week of professional development aimed at building a cohesive team in readiness for the 2019-2020 academic year, and we look forward to another highly successful year at YCIS Chongqing!
