    In April, a group of Years 8 and 9 “Chinese as Additional Language Level 7” (CAL-7) students and two teachers went on a field trip to Guyi Garden to learn more about Chinese history and culture. When we arrived at our destination, we went through the gates of the Guyi Garden. Everyone was amazed! Gardeners were planting flowers, people were walking on the paths enjoying the day, and tourists were taking photos. When we went in, our teachers told us about the Guyi Garden.

    YCIS Maths Fair Helped Me Define My Future Goals

    Hyewon, Year 10, Gubei Campus

    In April, I had the most important maths project I have ever experienced in Year 10. Previously, my teachers had always taught me maths, but in this project, my partner and I had to find out everything from the start, such as the pattern and the formula, and then explain what we found out to our teachers and the other students. I was excited to be a mathematician and have a chance to know more about maths!
