Reliving YCIS Secondary Yangshuo Camp
Early on the Monday, October 15, the Year 7s and Year 9s, totaling 60 students, plus 6 members of staff, embarked on a journey to camp in Yangshuo, Guilin. The six-day camp comprised of two days of travelling / settling, and four full days of activities. The purpose of this camp was to provide students with valuable outdoors education, as well as developing them as individuals by growing outside the classroom.

The October Staff Professional Development
The October break is in some ways symbolic of change, with the demise of summer and move to a cooler Chongqing as we approach the end of Semester 1. Over this October Break, we have also had some leadership change and we are pleased to announce the appointment of Ms Jessie Xiao to the position of Vice Principal, who joins the YCIS Chongqing SLT.
A Wonderful Welcome Lunch!
At YCIS Chongqing we are proud of our bi-lingual, International Education which promotes a holistic approach to teaching and learning and the development of the whole child. Our unique programme wouldn’t be possible without the partnership between home and school and our wonderful students.
Secondary GCLP Assembly
Each month, Secondary students and staff nominate members of our community who have embodied a trait of our Global Citizenship Learner Profile. Students can demonstrate their engagement with these traits through their learning or involvement in other programs on campus.
A BIG Thank You to Our Staff Donors!
Every day we witness the exciting growth of YCCECE students as they advance along the pathway of becoming Yew Chung Educators. We are deeply grateful to be celebrating the first two staff donations the College has received, which contribute toward a sustainable future of high-quality Early Childhood Education.
Communication: the Bridge between School and Home
The 2018-2019 academic year has begun in a very positive fashion. Our students and teachers are developing sound working relationships, which are vital in optimising the learning potential for our students. We were thrilled with the large numbers of parents who attended our Primary and Secondary Information sessions on August 24 & 29. With significant programme developments underway, it is imperative that all our parents take advantage of the opportunities to understand the expectations being asked of their children.
