As part of an ongoing, annual tradition, the network of Yew Chung International Schools (YCIS) come together in the form of a Gala Concert once a year to celebrate and support the school’s charity, Seeds of Hope, which was formed in 2008 in response to the devastating earthquake in Sichuan Province, China. This year’s concert will be held on March 22. The concert serves as a fundraiser that directly contributes to establishing a new Seeds of Hope school every year in a region in which YCIS has a school, and also provides a platform to highlight the talents of YCIS students from all campuses worldwide, including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Qingdao, Chongqing, and Silicon Valley (US). Following on the success of last year’s YCIS 80th Anniversary Seeds of Hope Gala Concert, held in Hong Kong, the honour of hosting this year’s concert has been bestowed upon YCIS Shanghai, and preparations are busily under way.
