Back on Track!
Even the rain couldn’t stop the YCIS Chongqing Sports Days taking place this year. There was much anticipation in the air from both our Primary and Secondary students as they arrived on Thursday and Friday morning for their respective Sports Days. Who was going to be the fastest, jump the highest, throw the furthest were the questions going through the minds of our most competitive students while others were simply looking forward to spending the day with their friends and trying their best in all of the competitions.
At YCIS Chongqing, our ‘Learner Profile’ supports the students to aspire to be the best learners and people they can be by understanding and developing 10 key attributes and traits.
What Will We Find out?
It was wonderful to see more students accompanying their parents to our Learning Conferences this past week. Our conferences are an opportunity for the teachers to share what the children do well, but also what they can further develop. It is important that the student, teacher and parent are all part of this process so they can celebrate accomplishments, but also to plan for their next steps in learning together.
YCIS at the Education Expo
There was much anticipation as we entered the Spring Education Expo at the very impressive Yue Lai Exhibition Centre. We were delighted to be invited at such a prestigious event. As the first and only international school in Chongqing registered with the Ministry of Education, YCIS Chongqing, this was a wonderful opportunity to share our international ethos, mission and educational values.
What Will it Look Like?
Over the last few years, a new landmark has continued to grow in Chongqing and now it’s nearly ready. From the day all of the outside building work was completed, our excitement has been growing, waiting for the right time to share with you.
When You Love, You Are Loved
Yew Chung International School of Chongqing is a place where care and love is promoted and celebrated whenever is possible.
NBA at YCIS
Our first ever Basketball Skills Competition took place this past Saturday morning. We had 18 of our finest basketball students from Y7 to Y13 competing in 3 challenges: Key Skills, Dunking, and Shooting.
New Seeds of the Spring
An annual delight to the senses, springtime sees us emerge from the darkness of winter to enjoy brighter mornings and longer evenings. We increasingly look to spend time out-of-doors, watering seeds and patiently awaiting the arrival of more and more beautiful florals. It also reminds us that Arbor Day, the annual Tree Planting Festival begins today.
Ready, Set, Go, off to Greece
It was time for our Year 7 students to ‘go Greek, due to their learning in Humanities being focused on the Ancient Greek Olympics. This was an excellent opportunity for our students to participate in some interdisciplinary learning with the Humanities and PE Departments coming together to plan this exciting project and experience the Olympic games!
