Christmas Trees Appear on Campus as Holiday Approaches
Chilly weather never comes by itself to YCIS in December! At this time of the year, YCIS Parent Organization often brings warm holiday greetings to the campus! In early November, our PO leaders started to work on the Christmas decoration project and the goal is to dress the campus up with holiday decor that is beautiful as well as environmentally friendly.
The Power of Language
Every year, the secondary language teachers run a ‘Language Week’ which accumulates in a whole-school ‘Language Week Exhibition’. This exhibition showcases student-led interactive activities, displays, and performances, all of which are designed to celebrate language within our school.
