Mother’s Choice Talk Adoption to Secondary Students on International Families Day
Families, like people, come in all shapes and sizes. Some are really big, with aunties and uncles and cousins and lost cousins! Some are really small, perfect for 2-seater cars, but bursting with love all the same. It doesn’t matter what size a family is, it’s still a family.
Our Gifted and Talented Continue to Shine
At YCIS we believe every child is a unique individual and through our students’ education journey we support all of their needs. For some of our students this leads to joining the gifted and talented register; in the Secondary Section this is overseen by the Counselling and Learning Support Team.
Transition from Kindergarten to Primary School
One of the many benefits students enjoy at YCIS is that it is a through-train school, meaning what takes place in Early Childhood Education Section (ECE) builds the students’ skills and all-round development for Primary, and from Primary on to Secondary. The beauty of this reassuring pathway is experienced by the children and their parents. Our four-year-olds have priority for a place in Year 1.
