The Chinese New Year of the Ox is just around the corner. As an international school combining the best of Eastern and Western cultures, Chinese New Year celebrations are a highlight on the YCIS Qingdao campus. A fantastic New Year celebration was underway.
Drum beats and Chinese dances permeated the school gym. Every little performer was a picture of concentration, full of passion, weaving a celebratory Chinese scene. Each one savoured the moment on stage as he or she shone for friends. At YCIS, we cherish every opportunity for children to build confidence in this manner.
Without a doubt, music plays a key role in daily life. Drawing on the school motto, “Align with culture and art”, YCIS art education programmes aim to teach students the beauty of art in a lifelong journey of appreciation. On the CNY celebratory stage, students soaked up music as seeds of artistic endeavour were planted in eager young hearts.
Although we could not invite all YCIS families to join our celebration on campus, some sent warm greetings by video and a few showed off their Latin dance moves. YCIS believes the close relationship enjoyed by the school community contributes greatly to children’s development.
We would like to thank the entire school community for its devotion and hard work.
YCIS Qingdao wishes you and your family a happy, safe and rewarding Chinese New Year!
