Fostering Innovation Through G100
The Yew Chung International School of Beijing is equipped with a plethora of resources and facilities to support the School’s mission of fostering innovation as well as creativity. The ever-changing technology landscape and the numerous devices we use daily confirm the importance of endorsing innovation and get ready for an unknown future. With the goal of inspiring students to positively impact the world and overcome the challenges of their generation, initiatives such as the G100 Project are created to encourage them to embrace innovation while offering them the opportunity to also work on their passions.
Giving Back to the Community with CAS
Last week, many well-known Beijing based NGOs and other non-profit organisations attended our Yew Chung International School of Beijing’s annual CAS Fair. The goal of the Fair is to provide students with meaningful and impactful opportunities and a chance for them to get involved in areas such as Creativity, Activity and Service within our School and the Beijing wider community.

Mid-Autumn Festival Celebrations
Last week Thursday, Yew Chung International School of Beijing celebrated one of China’s most loved holidays, the Mid-Autumn Festival, with a series of activities aimed at introducing our students to popular Chinese traditions and customs. These activities are further reinforcement of our School focus on biculturalism, a prominent part of our philosophy. These celebrations help students not only to learn the Chinese language but also to immerse themselves and experience certain aspects of the culture.
How to Prepare Your Child for University
Last week Monday, the Yew Chung International School of Beijing University Guidance Officers held the first of many UGC Parent Workshops planned for this school year. With a wide range of opportunities and options being accessible within the international university landscape after students graduate, choosing the ideal institution can be overwhelming for both students and parents. The purpose of this workshop was to guide parents through the university application process, equip them with resources and knowledge of how they can lend support their children and to highlight the services available at our school to assist their children in preparing for university.
The Role of the PO in Our Community
Our School’s success is dependent on the contributions of several members of our Yew Chung International School of Beijing community, particularly our Parent Organization (PO), a volunteer group of parents whose children are currently enrolled in the school. Their role at our school is an invaluable one, because they take part in and organise some of the most popular and impactful events in our school’s calendar, creating a great sense of community.
Our 2019 Welcome BBQ Round-Up
Last week Friday, our community came together to celebrate the start of the new school year at YCIS Beijing’s Annual Welcome BBQ at the Honglingjin Park Campus. The afternoon was filled with many happy faces who enjoyed the entertainment provided by our students and a lively band.
Our Commitment to Providing Safe Air Quality
We are approaching the end of the summer and the dreaded smoggy Beijing days are upon us. At Yew Chung International School of Beijing, we are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students and staff and one of the main ways in which we provide high air quality standards is by ensuring that all our indoor facilities are installed with air purification systems. This is in addition to air tight and double glazed doors and windows manufactured by German manufacturer Hormann. Air curtains by Panasonic are also installed at all external doors as a safety measure.
Lights, Camera, Elf!
In line with the School’s holistic approach to education, the Arts are a very important aspect of Yew Chung International School of Beijing’s life. And, when the word that the auditions were open for one of the most popular holiday films, Elf Jr., started going around through word of mouth, posters and formal announcements, the schools buzzed with excitement and eagerness.
