Autumn is now well and truly here, bringing perfectly temperate weather to Shanghai, as was the case last weekend when the sun shone down on the YCIS Puxi Secondary (Gubei) Campus for the school’s fantastic annual Autumn Family Fun Day event. The blue skies complemented the bright YCIS tents that stretched across the lush green surroundings of the school field, setting the scene for the festival.
Members of the entire school community – from Kindergarten to Secondary students, parents, family members, staff, and friends – gathered on the sunny Saturday to take part in a wide range of fun activities, enjoy food, snacks, and plenty of interesting clubs, games, and lifestyle options offered by a number of local vendor partners. This was a truly social occasion and the perfect chance to catch up with friends, relax outdoors in the sunshine, and also to enjoy live music performances, including several excellent student bands and ensembles.
The Autumn Family Fun day couldn’t have been possible without the fantastic work done by the Parent Organisation Puxi (POP), who worked tirelessly to bring everything together, showing the spirit and commitment of the members of our parent community. Each year, this is a big draw for new and returning families, and this year was no different as the hard work by POP was recognised by the great number of people who attended and thoroughly enjoyed themselves throughout.
All in all, it was a lovely event that had something for everyone, and as things wrapped up on campus, the attendees left with smiles on their faces, going on to enjoy the rest of their afternoons and weekends together with family and friends. The school and POP are now looking forward to, and busy planning for, more school events coming up before the festive season.
