Culture and arts are fundamental to the fully rounded and balanced education offered at YCIS.
YCIS has a dynamic art faculty complemented by the unique concept of an Artist-in-Residence programme. Since 2000, the Artist-in-Residence’s role has been providing YCIS students with the opportunity to learn from contemporary, working artists and renowned art institutions, such as Savannah College of Art and Design. Students have the chance to learn about the dynamic art scene locally and worldwide, and learn techniques and art forms straight from the professionals.
Music also plays a major role in school life at YCIS. Research shows that music training enhances a child’s spatial-temporal reasoning, leading to improved maths performance, memory span and intellectual development.
Students receive compulsory violin lessons from four years old in Early Childhood Education to Year 3 in Primary, with lessons becoming optional activities thereafter. These young violinists have numerous opportunities to display their talents in school concerts and musicals, as well as public performances. Students will not only learn to play the violin, but they also benefit from taking part in the event production where they learn about teamwork and other social skills.
