Yew Chung International School of Chongqing held a remarkable Parent Retreat event on May 12, 2023, entitled "Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow." The successful gathering drew over 100 enthusiastic parents and posed an excellent opportunity for parent engagement.
The retreat hosted guest speakers from the education and technological domain, including Dr Christopher Hurley, Head of Educational Innovation and Alliance for YCYW, and representatives from Tesla. They delivered insightful talks on the future of education and the importance of incorporating innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) to equip children with the skills they need to lead tomorrow's world.
Furthermore, parents were introduced to YCYW’s AI app, which provides students with supplementary educational material to showcase real-world applications of AI. Parents learned effective ways to support their children in using AI at home while ensuring that their digital safety is guaranteed.
During the retreat, school leaders provided updates on the new strategic plan, which will streamline the school's educational program by empowering our students and staff. The new strategic plan aligns with YCIS Chongqing’s vision of offering an exceptional learning experience conducive to the future needs of our students.
During the event, Yew Chung International School promoted its service-learning opportunities through its summer camps. These programs enable students to broaden their horizons and develop valuable skill sets through a range of community-engagement activities, including volunteer work and cultural programs.
Our "Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow" retreat was undoubtedly a beneficial and engaging event for parents, allowing them to connect with other parents, school staff, and industry experts who share their passion for excellence in education. We look forward to hosting more events like these in the future.
