Let’s Go for it
A bright and sunny day welcomed the YCIS Chongqing students for their first day of the new academic year. As the children walked through the school gates, new and familiar faces were greeted by our teachers and leaders. As the children said their goodbyes, it was easy to tell who were the most anxious… the parents, but there was no need to worry as the students settled into their new routines quickly and easily.
Historic IGCSE Students
Last year saw some wonderful IGCSE results, but this year our students have achieved even more! Congratulations to our Year 11 students on achieving some the best results YCIS Chongqing has seen in its history. These results put us amongst some of the best International schools in the world, especially when you consider the inclusive nature of our school and the fact our students sat examinations unlike many other countries.
As part of YCIS Chongqing’s commitment to providing a holistic education, this summer, we offered a variety of ‘camps’ to our students, but why do we think these experiences are important in the development of the whole child?
Full ‘STEAM’ ahead!
Throughout this year our students and teachers have been participating in STEAM activities leading to two full days of learning across the school, but what is STEAM and why is it useful for students?
Sensational Student Success
The moment your final IB exam finishes can be quite euphoric, it’s over, I’m finished, but then the waiting begins and as 6th July approaches, students who were confident and relaxed when exams were over, start to wonder. Did I really answer that question well? Did I get the points I need to get into the university I want to attend, the mind can play tricks on you prior to results day.
End of Year Message from the School Leadership Team
We can’t believe the end of the academic year has come around so quickly, but here we are, the end of another year. To those families who are moving on, we thank you for your support and we wish you and your children well. To those families who are remaining with us, we appreciate your trust in our school and its teachers, we have had some success this year, but there is more to come, not only from the new building, but developing opportunities for more communication, along with a continued ‘raising of the bar’ in both our standards and expectations.
Awards, awards, awards
After the virtual awards of last year, we were able to take one more step back to normality this year by hosting our Primary & Secondary awards in front of an actual audience. The children themselves were the audience and they had the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the successes of themselves and their peers.
Time to move up!
As our Year 6 students graduated from Primary School, they were filled with a jumble of emotions. Excitement that they had reached such a milestone, pride that they were soon to be one of the ‘big kids’ and, of course, nervousness that the next stage of school would be different to what they were used to!
Preparing for the Years Ahead
From June 14-18, Year 11’s completed a 4-day program to help them prepare for their IBDP studies in the next academic year.
