    How to Prepare for IB

    Dawn, Year 12, Century Park Campus

    As the past summer came to an end, I got more and more excited for Year 12 and my time studying IB to start. A new form teacher, the IB lounge, and free periods! I am eager to have an excellent two years of IB ahead, and I have set some huge goals I am confident I can achieve.

    Winter Sports at YCIS

    Phaedra, Year 9, Century Park Campus

    One of my favourite things about YCIS is the diverse and plentiful sports programme.

    YCIS Lunch Is a Time for Community

    Marcus, Year 11, Century Park Campus

    Amongst of all my favourite things about lunch at YCIS, none of them have to do with the food. Sure, we have tasty options, but what I love about lunch isn't the meat we get served, or the different kinds of spices the chefs use. Instead, lunch at YCIS is more of a social event than it is a gastronomic one – people from vastly different corners of the planet coming together under one roof, bringing distinctly different stories, cultures, and perspectives with them.
