New Student Morning Tea
YCIS Chongqing aims to support the transition process for our new students by providing opportunities for them to meet new friends and teachers who can offer help and advice. On Wednesday 16th September, our new students and their invited ‘buddy’ gathered together for a special ‘morning tea’ to celebrate and welcome them to their new school.
Creative Minds are on Display
Recently, Year 6 Learning Community kicked off the start of their academic year with a Talent Show. Creativity was on display as 28 students exhibited their own unique gifts. Violinists played their favorite songs, pianist showed their magic fingers, models demonstrated the art of modeling, and mathematicians exhibited excellence. Amazing pieces of art, paintings, clay models, photography, and handmade items were showcased. Sports enthusiasts would have enjoyed the demonstrations of swimming, basketball, jump rope, golf (hole in one), fencing, roller blading, and the limbo!
2020-2021 Student Council
One of the hallmarks of our school is our exceptionally strong culture of fostering student leadership. There are multiple groups on campus that are dedicated to a range of focuses and causes, and impressively these groups are genuinely student led.
YCIS Primary Information Session
Sharing information about school procedures and policies is key to forming strong and positive relationships with parents. The first of such sessions took place on campus last week from August 26-28.
Fantastic Results for our IGCSE Students
Congratulations to our students who achieved some of the best results YCIS Chongqing has ever seen. They have set the bar high with a truly exceptional performance. These results put us in the same league as some of the best International schools in the world.
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.
Even More Reason to Celebrate the Class of 2020
Our Class of 2020 had lots to celebrate when their results were issued in June, a second year exceeding the global average, another 100% pass rate and 100% achieved a bilingual diploma. However, YCIS Chongqing along with many other school’s around the globe felt their students still deserved more and we asked the IB to review student results to ensure they reflected our students’ abilities and potential.
