Alumni Reunion Takes YWIES SH Gubei Friends down Memory Lane

More than 60 YWIES Shanghai Gubei alumni gathered at BU Club on the Bund, for a wonderful reunion after a long separation.

The reunion was organised by Sam Zhang (Class of 2012), Hawking Fu (Class of 2012), Jacky Xi (Class of 2014), and Chelsea Chen (Class of 2015). Chelsea stood in as the emcee. An enjoyable highlight was the very entertaining Yew Wah school band that travelled back in time to bring us some oldie hits. Ah, memories.

Why Connecting Alumni Globally Is Like Looking for Lost Sheep, and Just as Rewarding

Mr Wayne Tai, YCIS Hong Kong Class of 2003, spent his entire childhood with us for over 15 years and that bond still continues. Apart from being a Yew Chung alumnus, the APAC regional Ecommerce & Digital Manager of Naos also volunteers as the president of the YCYW alumni advisory board, bringing his driving passion to expand and build a more meaningful alumni community for all of us.

Our alumni brought valuable former-student perceptions to help our educators better understand the core needs of a Yew Chung or Yew Wah student.

Why a Reel of Film Is Just a Reflection of Real Life

Film is a very unique form of art because it captures life in a way that other forms of expression, like painting or photography, cannot. Ms Chelsea Chen from our YWIES Shanghai Gubei Class of 2015, hopes to continue making films that convey the beauty of humanity and nature through art, culture and sustainability.
