The Student Council at YCIS Shanghai is one of the core organisations of the student body. We are a student-run group set up to further enhance school life. Student Council members are elected at the beginning of each school year by their individual home rooms, and each form has a representative. As part of our responsibilities, we gather every week to plan and discuss events, and this is also a chance for the form representatives to raise the topics brought up by their classmates.

The advancement of technology has connected countless people across the globe, enhancing standards of living and relationships between communities; hence, we are no longer merely citizens of individual nations, rather, we are citizens of a united society. As global citizens, and particularly as part of the younger generation, I believe it is our obligation to make positive contributions to the world and to be cognizant of current affairs and the impact of politics on our society.

In an era when gossip reels masquerade as news networks, I find myself searching for stories that not only entertain me, but also captivate me on an intellectual level. This search led me to participate in The Wire. The Wire is YCIS's very own student run magazine at the Century Park Campus. The media team is responsible for the writing, editing, and formatting of articles that are published in the magazine.
