YCIS Secondary Open Day
We know that finding a great school is never an easy process, and it’s really easy to become overwhelmed with almost too many choices. Ultimately, what makes a fantastic school is knowing that it’s the right fit for your little one, so YCIS are taking away some of that pressure and hosting a fun-filled Secondary Open Day with heaps of exciting activities for all of the family. Head down and get stuck into a whole host of games and interactive performances, hands-on challenges and delicious food! As well as getting to grips with their great campus, mamas will also be able to meet special guest speakers, representing YCIS’ charity partners with all funds raised on the day donated to Seeds of Hope. YCIS Hong Kong’s friendly admissions team will also be on hand to answer any of your questions and assist with applications for all age levels for the upcoming academic year. YCIS Hong Kong is a through-train school committed to providing global education for children from six months to 18 years.
