The global education at Yew Chung International School is developed to continually stimulate learning in students, both inside and outside of the classroom. One component of the curriculum that encourages learning beyond the classroom and beyond regional borders is the World Classroom Programme. This programme offers students an opportunity to increase their awareness and understanding of other cultures, promote critical thinking, and develop an appreciation of other points of view by visiting other countries. Each trip is overseen by experienced Yew Chung staff, who place the student’s safety and welfare as their highest priority. Additionally, a staff member leads a daily character formation and reflection time to help students fully absorb the learning from each day. Beginning in Year 7, and continuing through Year 10, students have the opportunity to visit far-reaching parts of the globe, with trips including destinations such as the wilderness of Africa, historical sites in the US and Europe, and exotic locations throughout Asia.

Every year, teachers at YCIS Shanghai Century Park Campus organise a Science and Mathematics Rush to challenge students’ problem-solving capabilities, and to inspire their scientific minds. To add competitive flair to this year’s event, a House (team) competition, in the form of the TV show “The Amazing Race – China Rush”, was organised with the winning team earning points for their House. Each House in each year level was issued a passport to record the number of tasks completed. But the tasks to be completed were not so simple; there were mathematical mazes, molecule problems, and moments to conquer! When each task was completed, the team was given a stamp containing part of a secret code, and only when a team completed all of the tasks could they figure out the code. Even the code was a challenge – as it was created by the teachers using a collection of Greek symbols and mathematical numbers.
