The YCIS Parents Organisation Pudong (POP) recently arranged another massively successful event for the school community with their 2017 ‘POP Picnic and Bazaar’, held at the Regency Park Campus.
The fun-filled day offered a number of activities for children, including sports games, a petting zoo, face painting, and much more, and children and their parents also enjoyed the spectacular stage entertainment throughout the day, including a drum performance to start off the event by the incredible Japanese taiko drumming group, Wakio. The always-popular “Dunk Tank” was back for more fun this year, with faculty and staff members getting soaked more than once!

The YCIS Gubei Campus community was thrilled to welcome back members of the Class of 2007 for their ten-year reunion recently. With any international school alumni group, organising reunions can be challenging due to the wide dispersal of students after graduation, but graduates from the Class of 2007 coordinated with one another to make the trip back to Shanghai to catch up with their classmates and teachers.
