    More than a Victory at Volleyball Tournament in Chengdu

    Jonathan, Year 11, Century Park Campus

    This year, YCIS Shanghai gave me an incredible opportunity to participate in an ACAMIS Volleyball Tournament held in Chengdu. The YCIS SISAC Division 1 Volleyball team signed up for the ACAMIS Tournament for the first time in the history of YCIS’s Century Park Campus. This was the first overseas sports competition I have ever attended during my time at YCIS, and this memorable trip lasted for four days, consisting of two full days of volleyball games. This trip to Chengdu let me build friendships with students from schools in Hong Kong, Ningbo, and Dongguan. We learned a lot from this tournament, through our new friendships with others from different parts of China, and from the atmosphere and sportsmanship, which were exceptional.

    I am currently learning Chinese as an Additional Language (CAL) student and I think that learning Chinese at YCIS is fun and easy. Learning Chinese is not easy at first sometimes for people because Chinese is a very different language from English, but when you get the hang of it, it’s like riding a bike.

    Nurturing My Passion for Music at School

    Iisha, Year 10, Century Park Campus

    When I was a child, I had a fond interest in anything and everything related to music. I remember my dad used to play songs on the speakers at home while he worked, and then he would stand up, take my hands, and we'd twirl around singing the songs as loud as we could – everything from Jethro Tull to the Beatles.
