As we approach the end of the academic year, the Parent Organisation would normally organisea ‘Staff Appreciation Luncheon’ to express their 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, instead of the ‘Staff Appreciation Luncheon’, parents set up a "rest stop" in the old campus, which brought a great surprise and joy to all of the staff.
Parents started preparing the event a week in advance. From venue and poster design, batch ordering of gift packages, raw material and utensils purchasing,to onsite parent volunteer invitations, our PO members put huge effort into this special event.Many of the parents prepared food at home to share with our staff.
There was an array of tasty food on display! Homemade toffees, sandwiches, fresh juices, cupcakes and many more! Staff were overjoyed when they came to the cozy "rest stop" during a break between lessons, they were amazed by the variety of food that our parent brought. The food matched the theme of the day recognising the importance of mutual support and appreciation.
At the end of the school day, parents also prepared a "thank-you bag" for each staff member. In the package, parents expressed their infinite trust and gratitude to all of the YCIS Chongqing staff.
YCIS Chongqing appreciates parent involvement, and we look to build and grow our relationships in the years to come and look forward to providing various opportunities when parents can engage with us to enrich our school life. From Check Out Chongqing to the recent Flea Market and Uniform Exchange event, parent support is always welcomed as it provides a great addition to our school community!
