    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.

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.
