At YCIS Qingdao, we offer over 50 co-curricular activities to cater to the different interests and age groups for students in Years 1 to Year 13 through our multifaceted Co-Curricular Programme (CCP). Students are provided with a wide variety of age-appropriate after-school activities in which they can develop new skills and interests and build collaboration and teamwork skills in fun and enriching ways.
Our CCP is offered in three sessions per year. This semester we were excited to be able to offer our students over 50 different options to choose from! These included the following:
- Creativity in the Arts: We desire all our students to have opportunities to experience elements of different cultures, to increase their skill in musical instruments, and to undertake new and exciting challenges in expressing their creativity. Some of these clubs include Orchestra, Percussion Club, Chinese Traditional Dance, Violin, Ukulele, Painting, Pottery, Woodworking, Planting, and Drama.
- Academic Clubs: We are always looking to provide our students with both new opportunities to apply what they are learning in class, as well as help to scaffold what they have been learning throughout the day. Our academic clubs include Model UN, English and Chinese language clubs, IB Korean, IB Economics, targeted writing classes, Study Skills, and Mathematics classes
- Sports: Whether individual or team sports, after school activities help our students develop healthy lifestyles and build healthy habits for the future. Active bodies outside the classroom encourage active minds inside it. Our sports offerings include archery, table tennis, soccer, volleyball, rollerblading, Kung Fu, baseball, swimming, sailing, hockey, and ice skating.
