YCIS Shanghai is one of only a few schools to receive the Green Star Award, which is a recognisation of the environmental work the students and staff have done to support Dr Jane Goodall’s organisation, Roots & Shoots. Roots and Shoots provides young people with the knowledge, tools, and hopeful inspiration to improve the environment and the quality of life for people and animals.
To go along with the award, YCIS students and their eco-enthusiasts teachers proudly presented a check to Ms Goodall as the culmination of their fundraising efforts. This marks the fourth consecutive year that a check has been presented, and is good proof that the environmental efforts at YCIS have taken root and become a sustainable part of our school culture.
