Design & Technology (D&T) is a subject that gives you a lot of freedom. For example, in our previous topic we were asked to create a miniature model of street furniture. This was after we had learnt about different types of plastics and various ways to form them. Our assignment did not have any special requirements other than it had to be a street furniture model made out of plastic. We were free to design any kind of street furniture in any form using any method.

The satisfaction of being able to share your hard work with your family, your friends, and your peers is incomparable. Over the past two years, my classmates and I have been putting our all into our artwork for our IB coursework, and all of our accumulated work was recently showcased at our IB Art Exhibition this March. Our teachers had rented a gallery space for us in Pudong where we could display the products of our perseverance and commitment. To me, this was the highlight of my year.

I have been participating in a charity organisation since October 2014 for my major CAS project for the IB diploma. This organisation is called “Bow Meow Shanghai” and they help people adopt stray animals. I have found supporting Bow Meow Shanghai to be very meaningful.

Ever since I moved to Shanghai and started school at YCIS, charity became an important word in my vocabulary. Included as part of the schools motto, YCIS promotes learning through “love and charity”, and my passion for helping others has been cultivated during my time here.
