As the 2023-2024 school year fast approaches, the YCIS Chongqing campus is filled with buzz and excitement once again. With the successful conclusion of the new staff orientation and the ongoing In-Service Education and Training (INSET) for all staff, we are set for a fantastic year ahead. Join us as we share the highlights of these busy and enriching weeks.
New Staff Orientation
We are proud to welcome an enthusiastic and highly experienced group of educators to the YCIS Chongqing teaching team. From August 21-23, our new teachers engaged in various workshops and activities. These included presentations from the school leadership team to learn about YCYW's history and values, challenging and enjoyable treasure hunt games to familiarize themselves with the school facilities, as well as workshops and group discussions to better understand learning and teaching in YCIS.
All Staff INSET Week
It has always been our practice to host a whole staff INSET week before the start of the semester to ensure we are fully prepared to welcome students back to campus. Our team dedicated the entire professional development week to further understanding the development of the YCIS community, reviewing our principles and practices and values, as well as our expectations. We engaged in handover sessions and collaboratively planned and prepared for the exciting school year ahead.
As you explore our campus, you will definitely notice the exciting changes that have taken place over the summer. The brand-new Early Childhood Education (ECE) outdoor explore center will provide children with more learning opportunities. They can develop their gross motor skills through climbing, engage in sand and water play, or enjoy making music with their peers.
We are ready to kick start another wonderful school year!
