We can happily report that, for students at YCIS
the combined influence of classroom activities, hands-on fieldtrip experiences alongside Ecology Action after school activities, and working with the National Association for Environmental Education, Environmental Education is alive and well in our school.
The Ecology Action Team is organised by Daniel D'Andrea, YCIS
Environment Chair, and Henricus Peters, who is co-chair of NAEE.
Dr Sridevi P Thashnath, principal, administered the YCIS pledge and exhorted the volunteers to contribute selflessly and to alleviate the sufferings of the needy in the best way possible.
Other highlights of the day's celebrations were 'Mother India', a spectacular dance drama on 'patriotism', melodious renditions of patriotic songs and the YCIS song 'Naya Savera Nayi Umang' written and composed by music teachers.
The Ecology Action Group at Yew Chung International School (YCIS), Shanghai, is part of the After School Activity (ASA) programme which also includes the likes of sports, Chinese culture and hobbies clubs, all of which run weekly during school terms (China academic year) from 3.30pm-4.30pm, at two campuses--Century Park and Regency Park.
Recycling: This is one of the cornerstone activities undertaken by Ecology Action on behalf of YCIS at Century Park.
