For those who think leading fashion comes only from New York, Paris, London, or Milan, make way for what’s next right here in Shanghai! YCIS Shanghai Year 10 students from Gubei Campus all worked very hard to produce outstanding and interesting outfits for the 2012 IGCSE Fashion Show. The theme centred on “wearable works of art, based on the characteristics of an artist’s style.” In addition to being an exciting and creative event, the show was also an altruistic effort, as it was held as a fundraiser for the Starfish Trust Foundation, which supports children in Chinese orphanages who need urgent surgery.

The Table Tennis team at YCIS Shanghai Gubei Campus is growing, with increased numbers of students actively taking part in the competitions this year. Practices started in the beginning of October, and students trained hard for the first tournament, ACAMIS, which took place from November 8 to 11 in Qingdao. Team Members spent about three days at the tournament playing singles, and doubles, and team games. This year, the YCIS girls received first for the team games, first for doubles, and second and third for singles.

Take more than 60 YCIS Shanghai Gubei Campus students, place them on a YCIS Gingerbread-house-themed stage set in the luxurious Kerry Parkside shopping centre, mix in a standing-room-only crowd, and throw in some red Santa hats: that’s the recipe for a successful Christmas concert!

Students at YCIS Shanghai Gubei Campus were rocking around the clock during the annual Battle of the Bands. Not only were there vocals, drums, guitars, keyboard, and even a violin, performed entirely by students, this year's event also featured an entirely student-controlled sound system with Year 10 student Basile at the mixing desk.
