GLOBAL EDUCATION IN YCIS LEARNING THAT IMPACTS AN EVERCHANGING WORLD

About YCIS Qingdao Providing Qingdao’s expatriate community with outstanding quality education across a broad spectrum ranging from early childhood to secondary education, Yew Chung International School of Qingdao (YCIS Qingdao) has offered a distinctive education programme in a bilingual and multicultural environment since 2006. In this unique environment, we are committed to extending opportunities for our students to achieve academic and all-round excellence in their journey towards lifelong learning. Annually YCIS graduates gain highly respected multiple university acceptances including University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, LSE in UK; Princeton University, Cornell University, Columbia University, Stanford, UC Berkerly etc; adding to the expanding profile of university placements across the world’s top universities. Located on the scenic coastline of the Shandong Province, YCIS Qingdao enjoys this tranquil situation. Our school is easily accessible from popular living areas.

A message from Dr Betty Chan Po-king – Director Yew Chung education commenced with my mother’s perceptive insight during the 1930s; development and expansion has continued throughout the 80 years since. Our commitment to education today recognises the necessity for thinking and acting from insular to universal. Yew Chung has always strived to diversify and reshape the path of education according to our ever-changing world. What is the true purpose of education? What is the common goal for parents and us as educators? Is it the style of building they enter or the substance of the learning provided that makes the key impact on the child? Parents making this important decision need to look inside the classroom for evidence of quality education for their child.

A child is a true creation from influences both of the home and learning environment; teachers play a key role, as do parents. The world today is more competitive than ever, bringing unpredictable challenges and new situations. Parents have a strong sense of responsibility in choosing a school to help prepare their child for the unknown future. The evolving world dynamics have sought and forced changes upon us; thus at Yew Chung International School (YCIS) we hold precedence over the content and quality of teaching above all. A YCIS student, on our unique education journey, is immersed in Eastern and Western cultures whilst acquiring a high proficiency in English and Chinese. Our students gain a new and profoundly deep appreciation of the two spectrums. Regardless of their original background, YCIS students achieve a natural ability to successfully respond and communicate, effortlessly moving between Eastern and Western styles. We witness a beautiful and respectful transformation within the young person.

YCIS acknowledges our human obligation to cultivate a new generation that will take care of the environmental, social and economic challenges ahead. We should ask ourselves, what kind of person would we wish to drive the world’s direction? Linked with our commitment to global education is the vision to promote the inner moral compass; this balance will enable them to take the helm and steer their way through human complexities, enabling them to exhibit goodness, honesty and compassion with confidence. After all, it is the learning that will impact and transform the future. Dr Betty Chan Po-king – Director
