2020-21 Year in Review: Many Memorable Moments!
Summer is already upon us, and what a whirlwind year it has been! Every day at YCIS Shanghai is full of pleasant, surprising, and incredible learning adventures. Let’s look back at some of the highlights from the 2020–21 school year.
YCIS Shanghai Wins Silver Award in Landscape Competition
At the end of last year, after a strict review process and stiff competition, YCIS Puxi Primary (Hongqiao) Campus' A-Building stood out from many outstanding projects, winning the 'Yuanye Cup' silver award under the ‘landscape’ category.
YCIS Shanghai Class of 2021 Celebrates Graduation in Style!
Graduation day stirs many emotions: anticipation, excitement, love, and pride, mixed with nervousness and the bittersweet knowledge that the students are marking the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one. For many, this means moving from the life they know in China to far-flung destinations, such as Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States. This is a time of great change for our Year 13 students, but also one to unite and celebrate the hard work and good times that have brought them to this point in their academic journeys.
Maths Superstars Earn Global Recognition
Mathematics is not just about crunching numbers, multiplication tables, or algebra. Students can develop a plethora of life skills when learning Mathematics in an open, supportive, and inquiry-driven environment. Developing critical thinking, analytical, and problem-solving skills are at the core of the YCIS Shanghai curricula across all school levels, especially in Mathematics classes.
YCYW TEDx Event: Together, Building a Better World
Next year marks the Yew Chung Yew Wah (YCYW) 90th anniversary. For the occasion, Yew Chung (YC) and Yew Wah (YW) schools in Shanghai and Tongxiang will come together on June 26, 2021 to host a TEDx event.
Students Showcase Chinese Cultural and Linguistic Flexibility
In classes, students build their language skills with a proven curriculum that is internally designed, based on research conducted by YCIS. Students also experience a variety of Chinese games, songs, and performances that allow them to practise while increasing their knowledge of Chinese culture and building their interest in the learning process and enabling them to use their language skills in many everyday contexts.
Celebrating our Collaboration with East China Normal University
On April 21, 2021, YCIS Shanghai, Pudong, and the East China Normal University of Shanghai (ECNU), hosted a special ceremony to formally celebrate and acknowledge an internship partnership between our school and the university. The programme provides an opportunity for ECNU to send training Chinese teachers to YCIS Pudong to work with our school’s experienced Chinese Co-Teachers. As well as providing a potential pathway for the training teachers, our students also benefit from having more adults in the classroom to support them with their learning. The high-quality partnership will add to the development of the future of international education in Shanghai.
