ycis-sh-global-child-dayOn 10 May, the Yew Chung International School of Shanghai (YCIS) community came together to celebrate the 9th annual Global Child Day at its Regency Park Campus. This year’s theme was ‘Culture and Celebrations!’ The event brought together YCIS families, friends, teachers and staff for a day of music, dance, food, crafts and games.

Over 40 nationalities were represented, allowing guests to ‘visit’ countries from all around the world in one day! More than 700 attendees were treated to performances from traditional Mexican folk dancers, Japanese drummers, the YCIS Year 3 and 4 Do Rei Mi Choir, the Year 5 and 6 Century Park Choir, and more. In the Food Hall, guests enjoyed delicious cuisines from nearly every corner of the world, stimulating both their taste buds and interest in different cultures. At the booths, families could create their own cultural souvenirs to take home, solve global quizzes and play national sports and games. Sideshow events included the “Running of the Bulls”, and an English puppet show.

Global Child Day is an annual tradition that brings the entire community together to experience the school’s international community. The full day of activities, organized by the Parent Organisation Pudong (POP), was very successful due to the combined support of YCIS parents, students and staff. By celebrating multiculturalism at this unified event, guests can truly appreciate and understand the global-minded philosophy behind YCIS.
