YCIS Shanghai Celebrates 30th Anniversary


On October 13, YCIS Shanghai celebrated its 30th anniversary on YCYW’s Founder's Day, a special occasion to honor the founder of YCYW, Madam Tsang Chor-hang, for her contributions to education. 

YCIS Shanghai was the first independent international school in Shanghai officially recognized by the Chinese government, underscoring its pivotal role in YCYW's ongoing development in the Chinese mainland.

At the event, Dr Betty Chan Po-king, YCYW’s Chief Executive Officer and School Supervisor, highlighted the school’s development:

“In September 1993, we opened our first YCIS Shanghai campus with only 63 students from different countries and regions.

“Today, we take great pride in having more than 2,200 students in our various YCIS Shanghai campuses in Hongqiao, Gubei, Regency Park, Century Park, Ronghua, and Lingang.

“This achievement marks a significant milestone in our journey.” 

During the past 30 years, YCIS Shanghai has continued to pioneer and innovate in the field of international education.

Leveraging the strengths of the programs in Chinese Language and Chinese Studies, YCIS Shanghai has innovated unique teaching methodologies, including Bilingual Learning Communities and Super Co-curricular Programs.

These approaches foster a deep appreciation for cultural traditions, enabling students to develop exceptional character and a global perspective.

Last month, Concordia students set out on educational travel adventures to experience the vast history and culture of China.

Grade 5 students tackled challenges like rock climbing, archery, and kayaking at Wufeng Mountain in Anji; eighth graders explored iconic landmarks in Beijing, including the Great Wall; seventh graders delved into ancient kilns and Jiangxi's tea culture; while sixth graders reveled in the scenic beauty and traditions of Moganshan.
