Secondary athletic students at YCIS Shanghai Gubei Campus can be proud of another fantastic season, with four ACAMIS Championships, two SISAC regular season Championships, two ACAMIS runners-up, two SISAC runners-up, and four ACAMIS third place winners. In order to celebrate students’ athletic achievements and the team spirit of all students involved, a Secondary Sports Dinner is held every year.
