A question commonly asked by students throughout the course of their education is, “When am I going to use this in my real life”? One class where this question is not this case is Economics. While other classes may focus on teaching you what you need to know now, Economics focuses on what you will need to know for the future.

For the majority of my life I have lived in Shanghai, immersed in the bustling day-to-day activities of city life. Therefore, when my year level travelled to rural Xi Lian for our EOTC [Education Outside the Classroom] trip this year, I expected a huge contrast to Shanghai and what I was accustomed to, and I was certainly correct.

Firstly, I would like to explain what the AIR programme is all about. AIR stands for ‘Artist-in Residence’, and the AIR programme is unique to YCIS amongst the international schools in Shanghai. The AIR works directly together with the students on collaborative art projects, using different artistic materials, media, and different themes. The AIR also helps the students develop their artistic skills. Pieces created by the AIR are also showcased around the school for students to study and enjoy, inspiring them by the beauty in art.

The YCIS Career Symposium, “A Conversation with Women Leaders” immediately interested us because it is an honour to hear from so many successful women leaders working in different fields. As Year 12 students, we are soon going to finish high school and step into another important phase of our life. We were very pleased to hear advice about how to quickly adapt in an unfamiliar environment, and more significantly, how to make yourself stand out. All four speakers at the symposium introduced their businesses and shared some of their experiences in the workplace.
