    What I’ve Learned from Participating in Charity Programmes at YCIS

    The charity programmes at YCIS create amazing opportunities for students to truly think about what they can do to make the world a better place. “Love and charity” is a part of our school’s motto that aims to promote a charitable heart in each individual, as well as the passion for helping others. YCIS has hosted many events in promoting this concept, such as bake sales, Charity Week, volunteer work during our EOTC trips, and simple opportunities to just volunteer your time; these chances offer a versatility that is unparalleled.

  • A Reflection on the ‘WeStand’ Leadership Summit

    A Reflection on the ‘WeStand’ Leadership Summit

    We stand. We lead.

    On March 3rd, 2017, a group of YCIS Prefects and members of the Student Council had the great opportunity to attend the annual ‘WeStand Summit’ by Young Leaders World.

I really enjoy art, and I appreciate learning from our Artist-in-Residence, Ms Esther Chow, who I know because she taught us when we were in Year 6. We previously worked on a Hong Kong cityscape diorama project with Ms Esther, and that experience really made me look forward to this new project.

  • How is YCIS Different From Other Schools

    How is YCIS Different From Other Schools

    Libby, Year 12, Century Park Campus

    Bilingual in environment, and international in variety is what makes YCIS unique. From Year 1 through Year 6, I always had two Co-Teachers, one English-speaking and one Chinese-speaking. My friends and I never thought twice when the language spoken in the classroom or on the playground was consistently changing. We were from all around the world, but we were brought together by the two languages we shared.
