After nearly two years of creatively taxing and time-consuming work, the IGCSE Art and Design & Technology (D&T) exhibition is a welcome opportunity to showcase the products of all your work. Even as someone who is really passionate about art, the couple of weeks before our coursework was due and leading up to the exam were a bit stressful. The end of our exam in April brought about a great sense of relief.

We recently visited the Shanghai Museum with our Humanities class to learn more about Chinese art. The museum was full of Chinese history and we looked at many Chinese paintings. As we have learned, Chinese paintings are one of the oldest continuous artistic traditions in the world, and painting in the traditional style is known today in Chinese as “guóhuà”.

This year was an eventful one for the Student Council at the Century Park Campus. We organised everything from spontaneous bake sales and hot chocolate stands to charity runs and the “Feast”. Despite our weekly meetings being brief, we managed to accomplish all of this over the course of the school year. But my favourite event, by far, was the much-anticipated Feast.

Among the various after-school activities offered at YCIS Shanghai, one is my favourite -- Model United Nations (MUN), an educational simulation and experiential programme that provides students with a better understanding of the inner workings of the United Nations and a forum to hone skills in diplomacy, negotiation, critical thinking, compromise, public speaking, writing, and research.
