Spreading Christmas Joy with MCF
Raising globally competent and compassionate leaders with a servant’s heart is reflected in our daily activities at Yew Chung International School of Beijing, however, around this time of the year – Christmas, this value is embraced even more through Character Formation activities such as the Christmas Wish Tree Project, which is organised by the school’s Parent Organisation (PO).
Improve Your English Skills During Xmas
With one week to go before the winter recess, the mood at Yew Chung International School of Beijing is one of joy, leading up to Christmas. Whilst everyone is eager for the upcoming holiday, we are also of the belief that learning does not have to come to an end with school breaks, but the holiday can be an opportunity to catch and keep up with what we have learned, especially when it cames to languages. This is why we have enlisted the expertise of EAL Teacher and Head of English, Rebecca Flavin, to share fun ways students can continue to improve their English language skills during the holidays.
