In an era when gossip reels masquerade as news networks, I find myself searching for stories that not only entertain me, but also captivate me on an intellectual level. This search led me to participate in The Wire. The Wire is YCIS's very own student run magazine at the Century Park Campus. The media team is responsible for the writing, editing, and formatting of articles that are published in the magazine.

This March, one of the most exciting days of the year for our IB Theatre class at YCIS Shanghai had finally arrived. The ‘YCIS Drama Performance Evening’ was an event that was filled with excitement, anticipation, and strong support from the invited audience members.

Every year at YCIS, during the same week as Earth Day, we hold an “Environment Week” at our Century Park Campus which includes various fun activities that are planned to help raise money to plant trees in Inner Mongolia for the organisation “Roots and Shoots”. This year, we had an activity planned for each day of the week: Meatless Monday, Book Swap Tuesday, Bake Sale Wednesday, Tree Cycling Thursday, and Green Dress Day Friday. In addition to all of these events, the “Eco Gazette” was also sold for RMB 10 yuan a copy throughout the week, featuring interesting articles and interviews written by our Eco Team members.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award (IA) is an extracurricular activity that ensures that students develop in three areas: Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS). In participating in this programme, we have to complete a Sport, a Skill, and a Service aspect for 3 – 6 consecutive months, and many of us students at YCIS have already completed these segments without even realising it.

With only a few weeks left at school, I’m already counting down the days until my time in China sadly comes to an end. Over the past nine-and-a-half-years, I have had the opportunity to really explore another culture, and of course, to learn the language in Shanghai. Through classes every day at YCIS, getting around the city, and work experience, I have been immersed in Chinese for most of my childhood, and I have progressed from being a timid eight-year-old, to being well on my way to completing IB Mandarin B Higher Level.
