Class of 2019 Success - Message from University Guidance Counsellor
In April 2017 YCIS Chongqing gained authorization to deliver the internationally renowned, International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP). This rigorous and challenging program “aims to develop students who have excellent breadth and depth of knowledge – students who flourish physically, intellectually, emotionally and ethically” (IBO,2019).
Thursday 12th September 2019 saw the Humanities department of YCIS Chongqing launch their very first Humanities Day event!
Meeting with Our New Staff
Mr. Ian Ward is from the UK with over 20 years’ experience in a variety of educational roles and responsibilities. He supported a number of schools to raise standards in teaching and learning, as well as inspecting schools, examining the quality of their education. Mr. Ward believes that the children should be at the heart of everything a school should do in order to provide every opportunity for them to be successful in as many ways as possible, not just academically, but to also make them great people and lifelong learners.
Celebrating Our New Students
Change is always hard, right? It’s normal to feel weird and different in a new place, and to miss your old friends. Then there’s having to learn a different school layout, feeling nervous about talking to new people and being drained from adjusting to all this new stuff.
