YCIS Pudong Christmas Tree Lighting

On November 30, YCIS Shanghai’s Pudong students, families and friends will come together at the Century Park Campus for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting. Organised by the Parents Organisation Pudong (POP) in collaboration with the Performing Arts Committee, this will be an outdoor event for the whole family that will mark the beginning of Advent. Along with the official lighting of the school’s Christmas tree, there will be plenty of food, gifts, and entertainment. This will include a number of musical performances by the school choir, student ensembles and bands, as well as the Parent Rock Band. There will also be a Christmas market with stalls selling home-made gifts, décor, and jewellery. Children will be able to visit the ‘Secret Santa’ tent where they can buy small gifts for their family and friends, and after all the entertainment and gift-hunting, hungry attendees will also be fed with a variety of food from vendor partners. All YCIS families and friends are welcome to join for the winter festivities.
