Recently, TimeOut Shanghai Family magazine ran a cover art competition where students at international schools across Shanghai could submit art depicting “the perfect school day”. Rhena, a Year 5 student at YCIS Shanghai Century Park campus, submitted her colourful piece of artwork and took home the top prize, with her art selected as the design of the magazines’ cover. In a take on the acronym of the school’s name, “Y-C-I-S”, Rhena’s complete design (featured inside the magazine) said “Yew Chung Is Spectacular.”

The YCIS Parents Organisation Pudong (POP) has done it again, with another successful event for the school community! Every year, the parents work together to host a series of events, including the POP Picnic and Bazaar held at the Regency Park Campus. The parents’ hard work and preparations this year resulted in a fun-filled afternoon that featured a wide range of games for younger children hosted by parents and Secondary students, live musical performances by a number of talented student groups, delicious food, and a huge range of shopping vendors. Children were treated to many fun activities, including being invited to dance as a group to the music, and to trying their hand at the Dunk Booth, with their teachers and administrators lined up for the challenge! The campus turned into a picnic ground, with families and friends relaxing on picnic blankets, enjoying the music, beautiful fall weather, and the wide variety of food, including yummy treats for sale from the YCIS Girl Scouts.
