    Being Involved in the YCIS Music Programme

    Eunice, Year 11, Gubei Campus

    Right now I’m working towards my IGCSE, and Music is one of my three electives. There are three categories in the IGCSE that we have to complete: performance, composition, and theory.

  • Best EOTC Trip Ever

    Best EOTC Trip Ever

    Zhiying, Year 8, Gubei Campus

    First of all, I have to thank all of our teachers for taking us on our awesome Education Outside the Classroom trip to Moganshan. About EOTC, my first impression was that it was amazing! Before going there, of course, I felt a little sad leaving my family and own home for a week. But once I got there and experienced a lot of different things I felt very independent and more like an adult.
