Our Friendly Spirit Starts in the House
Last academic year we introduced our new House system. This means we now have four Houses – Blue Water House, Green Earth House, Grey Wind House and Red Fire House. We spent many Friday afternoons in our various Houses through the year, introducing ourselves, meeting House buddies (special Secondary friends for Primary students), forming House values and engaging in lots of exciting House activities.
We also competed in a range of House events for Founder’s Day, Chinese New Year, and e-Sports Day. The purpose of the House system at YCIS Chongqing is to build a strong and lasting bond at various levels within the larger school community.
Students in Primary and Secondary as well as staff and families are encouraged to share in the values of each House and celebrate the achievements each member makes throughout the year. House points are awarded for achievement, participation and global citizenship. All this culminates in the House earning the most points being awarded the YCIS Chongqing House Shield at the end of the year. We would like to recognise the inaugural winners of the House Shield – Grey Wind House. Well done!
In the 2020/2021 school year we look forward to more House activities as well as other interesting competitions to highlight the friendly spirit and enthusiasm that is always on display. We look forward to sharing updates across the year. Good luck to all the Houses.
