On March 22nd, we invited parents and community partners to join us for our Annual Career Day in Yew Chung International School of Qingdao. Year 7-12 students listened to a wide variety of speakers including those in industries as diverse as Engineering, Health Care, Management, Woodworking, Entrepreneurship, and Food Services. Our students were able to learn about the educational backgrounds of each speaker, their career path, their day-to-day job experiences, and advice they had for students moving forward. Common attributes discussed during the day included flexibility, resilience, teamwork skills, work ethic, and a growth mindset. These attributes mirror the core values we develop in our students via the Character Education and IB Diploma programmes in secondary school. We would like to thank our presenters for giving of their time and energy to share with our students these real-life examples of the skills and values the students begin to develop during their time at YCIS Qingdao.
