Emily, Year 11, Century Park Campus
I grew up thinking that grades and test scores are the only things that make a difference in school. It’s about memorising the terms and studying the notes and getting the A’s…right? Well...not actually.

Iyeh, Year 11, Century Park Campus
Being a student at an international school is definitely interesting. As an international school student at YCIS, I am exposed to so many different cultures and I learn something new and cool about these cultures every day. It has also made me more sensitive toward people's traditions and beliefs. As a Nigerian student studying in China, I can say that I have certainly been given a chance to explore a different aspect of life in this part of the world.

Zi Wei, Year 8, Gubei Campus
I have always been fascinated by Chinese New Year, and have learned a great deal about the holiday in school at YCIS. It amazes me that on this particular holiday, friends and families eagerly meet up, gather together, and catch up on each other’s lives.

Last month, I had the opportunity to attend the YCIS IGCSE Art Fashion Show. The show started with a presentation from the art students about how they constructed their creations and we saw some pictures of them making their designs. Then, a group of Year 10 Drama students presented a short skit before the fashions came out on the runway.
